Default Library needed

Do we have a library on this site? I haven't found one.
There should be a place were there are links (or even full downloads) to books and videos that are FREE AND EASILY ACCESSABLE ON LINE. No items listed for sale. No items that do not appear immediately when accessed. But items that are absolutely free for the taking.

How many free woodworking books and videos are there?

As far as I know most are copy written and cost money...

Except on this forum. There are tons of experience and knowledge available here that you won't get in books or on TV programs. The problem is the FAQ isn't up and running yet. I've contributed one article and several more on the way. I'm sure Template Tom will contribute as well and there are many others of excellent authoring skills that will contribute as time and topic avail themselves.

Most of the magazines are there, too, but this forum couldn't possibly advertise them because, as Mark has pointed out, there are copyright laws and the torrent sites are flouting copyright.

Cheers

One issue with me hosting videos would be the sheer bandwidth. Just the images alone we run around 100 GB of bandwidth (attachments). Videos would most likely multiply that by 50. If people could point me in the direction of this free content I may look into setting up an area.

Hi Howard:

That's part of the puzzle. The other part is the text that goes along with it. Pictures say a thousand words but without the words to go with them, the pictures are useless.

And the galleries could use a seach function, especially when there are hundreds of items in the gallery.
