I don't doubt the quality of the scans.

I just meant some of the scans are better than others.  I was learning as I went.  (my own thoughts) Sometimes it was fun working on it, especially when I was learning something new and exiting and it looked great.  Then comes all the tedious work many thousands of times over.  Then it became drugery much of the time and I just wanted to finish what I started.  Now I have come to a point where I can just sit back and enjoy it.  Sometime I will start adding the years after 2009.  Scanning was a lot of work on some years because the whole pages were printed crooked or didn't line up in the middle or parts of the middle of some two page spreads got chopped off in the printing process.  Sometimes it wasn't about making it perfect, it was doing the best I could with the quality of the catalog pages/printing.  But they were meant for selling tools and being disposable, not for keepsakes for future generations to view on their electrical computational viewing machine.  I heard many used them for toilet paper.

Great catalogs David. I just put your CD on my wife's Christmas "stocking stuffer" idea list.

I'm not sure.  Depends on if I think the economy can handle it.  I have to purchase them in advance from the manufacture and then hope they sell or I am stuck with a box full and out more money.

Why not burn them yourself? I don't give a crap about pretty labels or fancy jewel inserts.
