Mundy Hoisting Engine catalog available on CD
I have spent a lot of time and money over the past 40 years looking for old
catalogs of logging and other industrial equipment manufacturers. Finally,
technology is beginning to make these impossible to find items available at
an affordable price.
I just received the latest photo CD from Ken Postma. This one is the J. S.
Mundy Hositing Engine Company, Catalog No. 16, no date, 104 pages. Probably
about 1910 or 1920.
The CD sells for $12.99 + $2.70 shipping and handling in the US for a total
of $15.74. Check or Paypal is fine.
This very rare catalog is jam packed with great photos and information.
Traveling stiff legged derricks, piledrivers, and lots of other great items.
Hoisting engines were used in logging, of course, but also used in many
other industries. And the photos and ideas in this catalog should provide
inspiration for more than a couple of nice pieces of equipment.
Ken has a website at:
He has lots of other great catalogs there as well.

I have never met Ken, but I do like his photo CDs and I know he is a
pleasure to deal with.
