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.

Spear & Jackson Catalogue Scans

Spear & Jackson 1970
There are now several scanned copies of old Spear & Jackson catalogues available here. The T3, 1961, and 1974 are from Paul, a tool collector in Australia.

Spear & Jackson 1970 Hand Tool Catalogue

Spear & Jackson 1974 Catalogue

The 1970 includes Brades (WHS) and Tyzack brand tools. The contents are on page number 3, and it includes many trowels and other masonry tools. Most of my scans are 300 dpi, with inside pages in grayscale. Because of the amount of color, this scan is 150 dpi with all pages in color.
