Filling a longstanding void in the literature of tool collecting, noted tool researcher Kenneth Cope has compiled a thorough and copiously illustrated guide to every documented manufacturer who produced and sold hand or foot treadle operated machinery in the United States. Filled with quality reproductions of hundreds of Nineteenth Century engravings of lathes, saws & other machinery, the book is arranged alphabetically by maker and includes much historical information about products produced, working dates and more. To add additional value, an appendix of commentary, which includes information about recent selling prices, tips on buying and more from an Expert Panel of prominent collectors of such machinery is included.
