OK.
I’ve made the complete set of 55 catalogues.
Phew!

The folder containing the individual catalogues is here.

Note the small “page number” tab at the bottom right …

... where you can get to subsequent pages.

My upload speed is very slow – it’s taking about 20 minutes per file to upload, so it’s going to take a while – probably the best part of today until they’re all there – but you can get the ones that have already been uploaded any time. 4shared does, I think, have a “per person” download limit per 24 hours, but I can’t seem to find out what the limit is – it’ll tell you if you’re beyond it and you’ll have to wait until another day to get more. You can pay to get around this, but a little patience is cheaper.

If anyone wants to upload the files to another hoster, be my guest – if you tell me via PM where you’ve put them, then I can update the top post in this thread to include that information for people.

i guess downloading 57 catalogues is going to get a bit tedious.
I considered going the torrent route, but decided a lot of ‘jocks might not be into torrenting, so I didn’t.
However, now they’re there, all is good.

I’ve uploaded a torrent to the same folder as the files.

It’s called, “LumberJocks Projects Catalogues (57).torrent”. It’s publicly tracked on openbittorrent and publicbt. I’ll add a new torrent for future releases with the “57” changed.

If anyone wants to switch from “tedious” technology to “torrent” technology – simply put what you’ve already downloaded into a folder called “LumberJocks Projects Catalogues” – your client will know it has those already and simply get the ones it doesn’t yet have.

Just to head off a couple of questions at the pass…
  • Yes, my torrent client is called TsunamiX
  • No, you can’t download it from anywhere, I have the only copy, since I wrote it
  • No, there’s nothing dodgy about it

To update to the new torrent…
  1. Remove your last torrent (57)
  2. Download and add the new torrent (58)
  3. Your client will re-validate volumes 1 to 57, and, noticing it doesn’t have Volume 58, just download that one to add to your collection

As an addition to KnickKnack’s post,
If you are using the torrent, (I see there are 287 peers at the moment), leave your torrent connection open and allow others to upload from you too.
At the moment there is only 1 in the swarm allowing uploading. This will make it a faster download for the rest of us and I plan to leave my connection open for others to use.

Great job. I just downloaded each of the 59 catalogs. It took about 30 seconds for each file.

I found that if I went to the directory and did a right click and open each of them in a new tab and then hit the download. The 20 second clock was running at the same time on each of the files.

I’d then go back and click the download now. I could get about 4 files downloading at the same time and get them all within 1 minute.

It didn’t take much more that 15-20 minutes to get them all.

Thanks for the data consolidation.

I don’t see why how I make these things should be a secret, so, for those who may be interested, I’ve written a small blog about how I make these files here.

Geek alert – there is nothing about woodworking there, just the broad brush strokes of the process, and all the nitty gritty code I use for you to download, should you desire.

Don – do not pay.
There is nothing to pay!

(Note: these screenshots are from Safari on a Mac – your screen may look slightly different in the details, but basically the same)

The link should have taken you to a screen like this…

Do not click on anything that says “premium”.
If, for example, you want to download “Volume 04.pdf” – click on it, and you’ll get to something like…

Click on the “Download now” blue button, which will take you to…

Wait for the 20 second countdown, at which point the bit I’ve circled in red will change to …

Click the “Download file now” link, and the file should start downloading.

I hope that helps. If not, please just scream again – we will make it work!

KnickKnack,

When I click to the link “same folder as the files,” it does show me the individual volumes as shown in your first screen shot. At the bottom of that page, it gives one a choice to download pdf files or torrent files. When I choose “torrent files” is when it pops to a screen that says I need the premium services in order to download. I chose “torrent files” because of the discussion of it being a quicker downloading process. Do I need a Torrent Program in order to download torrent files, or should I just download pdf files? Also, can all of the volumes be downloaded at once, or do you have to do one at a time? Thanks,

-- Don, San Antonio, TX

Knickknack included his own torrent file.. should be the first file on the list.

You need a client like transmission for mac or utorrent for windows. A .torrent file is basically an instruction set for the client to use to download files.

DonJ …
Mr Stretch is right – now I see the confusion because 4Shared offer you a torrent download option too.
I’d suggest that, if you are not already using a torrent client for other things, the anguish you’re going to suffer setting a new programme up just for this isn’t worth it – depending on your operating system, internet connection etc etc it can be somewhat troublesome (to say the least) – there are a bunch of things that can make it a challenge. If that is what you want, we can make that work for you.
That said, if you just want the catalogues with the minimum of effort and aggravation, but perhaps spending a little more time getting up to date, you can do what Karson said in post #21.
Once you’re up to date with the 61 so far, you’ll just need to download each new one when it’s posted (best to “watch” this thread to be notified of updates), around every 15 days or so – that download will take but a few minutes and you can then get on with woodworking.

Your choices for “catching up” are…
  1. Get them all from 4shared . They now, alas, require registration, but it’s free. It’s 64 individual downloads, which is a bit of a hassle – no pain no gain?
  2. A few of the later catalogues are available on mediafire . In slow time I’ll be putting the complete set there too.
  3. Both those sites contain torrent files which will download the complete set. As a techno-dude that’s probably the easiest way to get them all. Future updates just require you to get the new torrent file and download the added catalogue per the various instructions above.
