  Marples "Shamrock Brand" Tools Catalog, Wm Marples & Sons, 1938    

This catalog was provided by Andrew Tuckwell, a webmaster of The Tools and Trades History Society site. Thank you, Andy!

For over a century WILLIAM MARPLES & SONS have been engaged in the manufacture of Joiners' Tools. From the first we have concentrated on quality and during six reigns have kept this word steadily before us.

As a direct result of this policy we can say to-dlay that tools bearing the mark "MARPLES SHAMROCK BRAND" are recognized throughout the World as the finest obtainable.

William Marples and Sons have moved with the times. Where the installation of machinery has promised more economical production such plant has been installed, always provided that the high quality of the product has not been impaired. Our factory is now equipped with the most up-to-date machinery in the trade, and the Directors, who are descendants of the founder, personally supervise manufacture.

Since our last Catalogue was published we have introduced many new lines, all of which are illustrated in this new edition. We therefore commend our 1938 Catalogue to your notice as an up-to date and thoroughly comprehensive list of Tools for all Trades.

We take this opportunity of thanking our many trade friends for their loyal support and to assure them of our continued endeavors in their service.
