Default Access to the Old Shop Notes

Something I learned today from another thread I started was that there is free access to the 95 volumes of Shop Notes online. But wait, if you hurry now (no need to hurry) you can download the complete collection to save for later reference for the low, low, price of $0. But hurry, this is a limited time deal. Get yours today.....

In all honesty this is a free download for any or all if you desire and is perfectly legit. Goto and there you can view online or download if you wish. It's far easier if you have an Internet Downloader program that will allow you to que the downloads. I was able to que the 95 issues and the download manager queued 5 at a time until it was finished, about 15-20 minutes. Best deal I've seen all day. Most magazines want $99 for access/USB drives and there's some great content there. Maybe not exactly what you want but should be enough guidance to build your own version, maybe improved.

Anyway just a FYI in case you didn't know.

Steve---could you elaborate on the "Internet Downloaded" program? Maybe a name or a similar to reference?
I tried to download the individual Shopnote & got nowhere.

Thanks Steve, I would never have heard about this, but for you. Busy downloading - I always liked the somewhat old-fashioned aspect of ShopNotes, which was not often available in this neck of the woods.
I hope some of the other respected erstwhile publications follow suit. How did you guys let American Woodworker die, anyway?

Good find, Steve. I think they only put out about 40 more issues after that, so it's quite the collection.

Very cool find Steve. I bought a CD a few years ago, and it is great reading and LOTS of projects, plans, suggestions and ideas. An old friend gave me a number of old paper issues so I knew what I was getting. You'll want to put these up on a large monitor so you can see the full page. Get crackin' downloading ASAP, you're going to like it.
