I am probably the only one who didn’t know this, but here we go:

apparently all issues of american woodworker from 1980-1999 are available for browsing for free (full content) on google books:

I found a problem. And I’ve not yet found a solution. I’ve not been able to find a way to print a page from the magazine. You highlight the page and the properties are a cleardot.gif with a size of 43 bytes. So you print a cleardot and a page number of 1 of 1.

If anyone figures out a way. Post it.

I’d seen Popular Science and Popular Mechanics but this is the first I heard of any woodworking mags there. Thanks for the tip.

I’ve read the 1st 2 issues and had to make myself stop or I would be up all night. I too would like to know how to print the articles/pages. I highlighted the whole magazine and tried to print just 1 page and it printed the side bar ,advertising, but not the pages of the magazine…...help!

there are two ways of printing. the more complex one uses the fireshot addon on firefox, the simpler one is to switch to basic html mode. both are far from perfect…. but you don’t look a gift horse etc.

I made an acceptable, readable, but low resolution print by using a screenshot and pasting it to a graphics program. I used CorelDraw.
Since the entire page didn’t fit in the screen I had to use two screenshots and fit them together. It works.
I would encourage all to see the copyright notice at the bottom of the page. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with making a copy for yourself, but I think it should not be distributed at all, not any way including email, as far as I know.
