Please note

Because of the lack of published trowel and masonry tool histories, the information here is based on other sources that may be less reliable and certainly are incomplete. These include eBay and tools that I purchase myself that are the starting points for my research. I will write what I know as I learn it. If what you read here interests you, please check back often and look for revisions and corrections. Scanned catalogs are either mine or by Rose Antique Tools and used with permission, and are on Google Docs as pdf files. A few are links to other websites. Your photos and information are welcome.

Johnson Level and Hyde Tools

I would like to compliment Johnson Level and Hyde Tools for doing what almost no tool companies do, put copies of their old catalogs on their websites. It shows they care more about their heritage than just using it in advertising slogans. I have used both Johnson and Hyde tools for decades. Please take a look at these old catalogs:
