SHEAFFER SNORKEL - Catalogs and Research
Permalink Closed


I was thinking that the Sheaffer catalog section was getting a bit filled up with jpegs.  I have a lot of stuff about the Snorkel series and I didn't want them to get caught up in all that.

The information coming in my next post is from a Sheaffer company seminar given to their Sales Force when the Snorkel first came out.  It dates from 1952 and 1952 including an early catalog and a long article written by W. K. Olson, director or research on the Snorkel.

Good Stuff,

PeteWK

Agreed on the Sheaffer section. I wonder if it (and other sections as needed) shouldn't be broken up by model lines for ease of reference.

I can't wait to see the new goodies!

That's a really good idea.  I was wondering if we could have a general Company folder (Parker, Sheaffer etc) and then sub-folders inside with different year catalogs etc.  Kind of like a flow chart or family tree sort of thing.

ps - almost done with the scanning.  The whole thing should be up tonight.

OK, why are these pages out of order?  Hmm. . .

I was wondering that myself but it's not a major issue.

Very very cool stuff as usual my man!

We'll give this a completely new shot.  I think I have it this time.

NOTE - I basically just killed my previous post with all the failed attempts at getting the scans in the correct order.  I succeeded above so we're good to go.  I'll get up scans of what is probably the first Snorkel catalog soon.
