Is anyone else having trouble seeing the pics in the OP?
Also, when I click one of the links I go to a
reverse phone number lookup page??!
Maybe it's time I get rid of this Chrome browser.

Hi Mike, I’m not getting any pictures either, but if I remember correctly, they don’t always show up on these old posts. I’m using Safari on an ipad so i don’t think it’s Chrome that is the problem.

MikeH: I just now saw this thread for the first time, and I am also not seeing any photo images in the first post, and the hyperlinks take me to the same "reverse look up" page . As mikeswrenches says, it's doubtful that the problem is your browser.
Excellent write-up in the first post and the subsequent post on Plumb.
I only have a few pages of 1915 and 1926 Atha catalogs, but the images are too large to post here. I just posted them on my flickr.com page HERE:

There's a bit more information on Atha here:
Atha / Atha Tool Co. / http://alloy-artifacts.org/other-makers.html#atha / http://toolarchives.com/index.php/node/20

It looks like they've got a few pages of the 1901 "Atha" catalog at the International Tool Catalog Library HERE:
https://archive.org/details/AthaToolCo1901

(No doubt the site is rife with Stanley information as well.)

I am currently in the process of devising a means to disseminate the information I've gathered to a broader audience, but it will most likely be some time in coming. If you wish hard copies of those Atha pages, contact me via email - the address is in my user profile.

I used an internet archive to find the original webpage, with photos, of the gentleman ("jpaz" aka James) who started this thread. It appeared James assembled a diverse collection of knowledge from Atha/Stanley hammers to Starrett tools and more. I hope this links work:

"Atha/Stanley History": https://web.archive.org/web/20161110191706/http://jp29.org/wwstanhammer.htm

"Vintage Tool Wood Working Handtools": https://web.archive.org/web/20161012135145/http://jp29.org/wwtools.htm

Let me know if the links don't work and I'll try taking some screenshots. The Atha/Stanley page was my primary objective for dating a Stanley 41-1/2 of my own. While I failed to pin down a date, I did confirm it has the factory handle and wedges.
