The Hill-Curtis Company of Kalamazoo, Michigan, became Hammond Machinery Builders in the 1920s. Hill-Curtis TrimOsaw evolved into the the Hammond Glider Trim-O-Saw, perhaps the finest printer's saw ever made.
TrimOsaw Operating Instructions (1926?)
A booklet of Operating Instructions covering the A-3, A-1, J-10 ("Junior"), and "Ben Franklin" TrimOsaw models, by the Hill-Curtis Company. Undated, but coded "11-26", so probably November, 1926. Thanks are due to Greg Fischer ("The Linofish") for preserving this and making it available.
(Note: The cover of this book is a rather old, dull brown/grey. If it displays in a sort of horrid greenish hue, that's a bug in the most common commercial PDF viewer, not the file itself.)

The Hill-Curtis book reproduced here was published in or near 1926 with an imperfect copyright notice, and so probably passed into the public domain upon original publication. Additionally, a search of the copyright renewal records failed to disclose the then-required renewal for it, so in the worst case it passed into the public domain upon the expiration of its original copyright around 1954.
The WNU Catalogue No. 53 extracted from here was published in the United States without copyright notice at a time when such notice was required to secure copyright. It therefore passed into the public domain upon initial publication. These digital extracts remain in the public domain.
