All of my PK parts manuals have the prices listed on them. The earliest I have is 1952 or '53, I think. I will have to look.

I think you got me beat by a few years.

Are you looking for anything in particular?

There was a real old one on ebay a few months back that was from 52-53 but I figured what use would it be to anyone. If I known you were on the hunt I would have let you known :wallbanging:

I only have one or two.... Will see what I can do the older one is in a 5'' thick Bolens binder so that may be kind of hard to scan.....

Brian,  I do book scanning for authors, publishers, schools.  If you want and trusted me with it I could scan the contents of your manual and provide searchable PDFs to share.  The loose pages would be scanned with a high speed scanner and the bound or stapled manuals would be scanned with a custom made scanner so they would not have to be unbound or cut.

 

Of course I would not charge for this, just my donation to the site.

 

Just a thought

I do not print anything.  I transfer old books and documents to digital files ie PDF, Word, jpeg TSS, Nook, kindle or anything you need.

 

All my scanners do double sided.

The binder is pretty thick and the cover is pretty fragile so it would be pretty hard to scan.

I got a new camera that takes some pretty clear pics, did a test run and this is how it came out:

 

Looks like this particular price list was "Obsolete" in the eyes of the dealer and he crossed off the page and cut it in Half :(

Atleast they're still readable. Its a good thing they didn't use permanent black markers back then.

When I looked for these before I couldn't find any, but now that I'm looking for something else.......... :wallbanging:

These ought to set the bar back aways!
