Stanley 1902 Catalog


Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The scans below are from the Stanley Rule And Level Company catalog of January 1902 As always there were a few changes to the list and a few more hand planes added, which. I've included in the introductory piece below.

NOTE: For the purposes of this site, the "Changes in List Prices", "Changes in Design" and "New Tools" are edited to reflect the changes with Planes, rather than other Stanley tools.

"January 1, 1902.
We would request that our Catalogue No. 28 be carefully examined, as it contains various changes in List Prices of important lines.
It also illustrates certain improvements in the design of Tools heretofore made, and various New Tools not previously listed.
On the Discount Sheet accompanying this Catalogue we show only the initial or base discount.
On the last pages of this Catalogue will be found a list of the goods which are regularly ordered in Original Cases.
Opposite each tool is given:

      A Code Word -- Contents of a case.
      Net and Gross Weights -- Measurements.

This list will be found useful in making up orders, insuring good packing, with the least amount of handling of the goods. The Weights and Measurements given are approximately correct, but we do not guarantee them against change.
