The Old Tool Reprint Room

Reprints: E-M

Some of the reprints listed here were re-created from damaged originals. Others, especially those reprinted by Ken Roberts, have had additional pages of background information added to them. Conversely, some titles were not reproduced in their entirety in order to keep production costs down. Most reprints sell at a fraction of the cost of the originals, so building a library of them is far more economical in terms of time and money than seeking out originals.

Some of the reprints listed are still in print and available from the publisher. Others are can be located when offered for sale by antique tool and used book dealers or on online auction sites. Copies regularly turn up at old tool swap meets and in estates of tool collectors.
