Shop Notes

I have 80+- shop notes. None recent, but still likely very useful. I simply don't have the time to sort through them, but I just cannot send them to the recycling bin. No interest on FM Marketplace. Anyone here interested?

This has literally not gotten one single reply in the several places I've put it...

You might describe some of it further.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I took stacks of magazines to the local Value Village a while ago, doesn't seem to be much interest in printed copies otherwise and if there is the postage to send them gets pricey.

Holy dang! Value Village, I haven't heard that name in forever. We had one in town when I was a kid but they went out of business a long time ago. Heck I thought they were a local shop...

If you are trying to sell them, forget it. I might have been interested if you lived locally and want to give them away. To me, they are not worth the cost of shipping, not even at media rates.

Our local woodworking club meets twice a month, and there are always stacks of woodworking magazines free for the taking. I grab a few and read them, then bring them back for others. The dates range from the 1980s to the present. Maybe something like that will work for you, if you live near a woodworking club.

Our local library has the "Friends of the Library" bookstore, and they sell magazines for a quarter (dime?). I donate all of my current non-woodworking magazines to them as soon as I am done with them. In my imagination, some poor aspiring hobbyist is eagerly waiting for my next donation. In reality, most of them probably go with the unsold books and magazines to the recyclers for pennies a ton. (I give the woodworking magazines to the local woodworking club, of course.)

A couple of things.

In a conversation with a publisher, I was told that the typical subscriber to a woodworking magazine lasts about 12 to 15 years. After that there is little that a magazine can teach. YMMV.

Many of the woodworking magazines offer back issues on either CD-ROM disks or thumb drives. If one is really determined almost any article from the back issues can be found.

About 8 years ago I gave a complete set of Woodsmith to the local library. Some of the early issues were actually Xerox copies of the magazine. Some of the early issues were only 8 or 16 pages with no advertisements. I put them together in a nice package, in chronological order. I enclosed a note explaining that if the library couldn't use them to send an e-mail to the city employees offering them as they are quite valuable in terms of information.

As for Shop Notes, the magazine was probably one of the best, 'This is how, what and where way to do things' magazines. Unfortunately too few people actually care today.

Woodnthings - yes, like that, but printed copies. Certainly, I will give them away for free at this point. If shipped, it'd cost you $18 bucks for a flat rate box and as many as I could stuff into it. OK OK, 15 bucks, I'll cover the rest.

Kinda sad - I surprised that some of the older people wouldn't prefer a printed copy. I'm 46, and I know I would.

I bought several when they first introduced them, then for some reason I quite getting them. Can you tell me what numbers or dates you have? I might pay to have you send the ones I don't have, if that's ok with you. I would hate to see them thrown away.

I can do that, but if I'm going to sort them and fill a list, I'll have to get something for them. I can probably tell you approx what dates I have...about what do you need?
