Re: Coin operated cranes and diggers

I know you wont agree with me (you never do)... I do agree that Bartlett didn't file a crane patent until 1932, as it said on your website yesterday. I can't agree that, "Bartlett's first patent (manual not electric) was 1919" without a link to the patent, or at least one source (print or...
