Using Joyce's pagination, on the back side of page 13 (2/21/76 - 9-27-76), which I think would be page 27 in the pdf copy, the original printed copy came from a printer running out of black ink... column one on that page is not blurry, it's sharp, but faded from poor ink impression. Column two on that page is sharp, brisk and with good black ink.undee70ss wrote:How clear is your page (saws from 2/21/76 - 9/27/76) ? Mine, one column is a little blurry.
BUT!!... Discussions about the technical aspects of how to make pdf copies, read them clearly with an OCR scanner, enter that data into a spreadsheet, sift and sort that data in different possibly useful ways... DO NOT FURTHER THE PURPOSE OF THIS THREAD. If people want to discuss the technical aspects of data gathering, sorting and manipulation, I think it should be done somewhere else.
Here, we want to talk about Figuring Out Homelite Serial Numbers.
The Sales List from Wilson's Saw Shop can be a very valuable tool in this discussion.
But I think the best way to use that list here is with jpg copies of a particular page, dates, saw models and serial numbers, posted into this thread as illustration so anyone reading the thread can see what we're talking about right here in the discussion, is the best way to go.
Using a paintbox editor of the jpg scan to highlight certain entries on the pages is good also. It pinpoints the particular entries under discussion.
Let's try to keep the discussion here focused on Homelite chainsaws and their serial numbers, not computers, spreadsheets and data manipulation.
