Thanks Scott for posting another one for us.

This particular catalog, more brief than the others, is not dated. But, it was in a small group of Xacto literature with the 1980 catalog that I scanned and sent to Scott a little over a week ago. Also included in that group of literature was a 1982 price list, but I don't know for sure that this is a 1982 catalog. It is at LEAST 1981 because the catalog states on the front that Xacto is "a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hunt Manufacturing". Hunt purchased Xacto in 1981.

My best guess is this is a 1981 catalog. The back cover introduces their X-caliber series of knives. However, the 1982 price list -- which I have added as the last pages of this catalog -- 'stars' the items that are new. The X-caliber series of knives are listed, but are NOT shown as new. Meaning, they had already BEEN out, probably in 1981.

So, certainly a very early 80s catalog, probably 1981, but not certain.

Just saw another ebay listing and grabbed it for several hobby tool catalogs, including these two Xacto catalogs. The one of the left obviously is a 1977 catalog. The other does not have a date on the cover, but I would venture to say maybe a 1971, which would be great!

Postal service is getting much better and I have been getting things delivered the past couple months in 4-5 days most times. Once received, I'll scan these two and send to Scott for posting like the two most recent ones from the early 80s.

May have to check with Sue a about that that one.

This catalog also shows a part number for "Old #19" and "Old #24" blades with the original "wide length" style of those blades, but only available in 100 paks. This catalog identifies those were at least still available as late as 1980.


GH-

This may be the mitre box like in the 1980 catalog, if you have not already snagged one somewhere else.

Thanks for posting and hosting, Scott.

This is the first of the two catalogs I won off eBay last week. Came in a few days ago. Iíll start scanning the Ď77 catalog here in a couple days or so.

Take a look at page 12 of this catalog. Xacto added a model rocket tool kit to this catalog. I picked up one of these tool kits about a year ago off eBay. I suspect Xacto offering this tool kit was a result of the work they did in packaging up the similar Centuri vinyl tool kit pouch. Iíve come to the conclusion that Centuriís tool kit was probably farmed out to Xacto to private label produce for Centuri, sometime around Ď69 or so. Not sure how long Xacto carried their model rocket tool kit, but Centuri continued to carry theirs until the latter 70s.

Yep, sent it to Scott yesterday as a matter of fact. He generally posts in a day or two unless he is on vacation.
