Default Woodsmith magazine collection

A near complete set of Woodsmith Magazines For Sale - Yep, I have collected probably a 99% complete collection of Woodsmith Magazines over the past 50 years. Its now time to pass them on to someone else. Except for 4 or 5 issues that I may have lost the collection is complete and comes with 3 soft, 3 ring binders, many Shop Notes and "project indexes". If you are interested in buying this rare collecton please get in touch with me and I'll send you an inventory of what I have. We can then discuss price and delivery.

Thanks,
Ed, My email is: [email protected]

Any nibbles on your collection? I have similar collections, especially FINE WOODWORKING and AMERICAN WOODWORKER.

The FW is issue #2 uninterrupted through 2014, all in mint condition. AW is about six consecutive years? Any ideas on acceptable prices?

Hey Norm (ngk20000), Because of the lack of interest/responses (0 : 0) I'm afraid that donating them or giving them away are the only way in which I can regain my shelf space. I too, have an enviable run of Fine Woodworking and it appears that these issues are destined to meet the same fate. Thanks for your response.

May I suggest donating these back issues to your local woodworking group?

Mike,
I like your suggestion. How do you suggest I find a local woodworking group? I'm located 30 miles east of Los Angeles. Do you think that Router Forums may have some referrals in my area?
Thanks,
ED

@@jeepered; and @@ngk20000;, after stumbling on this listing and checking out what these magazines go for on eBay I considered making offers so I could sell them myself, but frankly I'd feel like I was ripping you guys off. Complete collections of Fine Woodworking have recently sold for over $200 with "buy it now" prices; most of the other magazines go for less, but still a substantial amount. Of course, you'd need to be willing to deal with listing at a buy-it-now price (not an auction) and a 30 day sale, and then be patient enough to sit on the price until your buyer shows up. But if you put your whole collection in one listing you'd only have to go through it once.

Fine Woodworking completed sales, price high to low

Ed, you should of messaged me when I didn't respond. Try here:

If you donate the set to an accredited school you should get a nice tax write off from this.

Sorry I'm so late with my reply Mike. I like your idea of donating my FW and WS collections to a local high school, jr. college wood shop or woodworking group.
Thanks,
ED

Lenore,
Maybe I'm too impatient but it seems like a lot of work to sell my WS and FW collections on eBay. I think I'd rather just give them away. Do you know of anyone who may be interested and who would be willing to pay the postage?
Thanks,
ED

Hey jeeperd, If you still have the WS & FW I would be very much interested in them for the shipping cost. You can contact me at [email protected]. Hope I am not to late.
