Peterson Products, Projects
Mr Pete and his brother had an enterprising side business of selling plaster patterns that could be cast for projects and the blueprints to go with them. Some of the blueprints and casting instructions have survived and are being made available to anyone who wants them. These are listed below. To download the PDF document click the image to the left of the description. I would like to extend a HUGE thank you to Mr. Lyle Peterson for sharing these with the rest of us.
