Ther problem with listing Bartram tools on this website is that I don’t have a Bartram catalogue. I have never seen one. With a catalogue it is easier to determine an order. At Dixon, for example, I relied purely on catalogue numbers. With Bartram I have to be creative. There is a certain standard shape with a more or less oval, squared top of the table clamp and a straight turning lever. Those tools begin with “ST”(andard) in the name. Followed with the number of the press lever (Dixon’s catalogue) or a “W” if it is a Webley press lever.
