About five years ago Popular Woodworking published a wonderful book “Old-School Woodshop Accessories” compiled/written by Chris Gleason containg some 40 reproductions of the original Deltagram articles from the 1930s – 1940s.
Profusely illustrated, it’s a good trip down memory as well as expanding the Deltagram articles with new, up-to-date project plans.

Dude;

Excellent! I am thinking about building the cannon in the 1972 edition and looking forward to seeing future editions.

Looked at a couple of your reviews on your site also. Have been interested in the Rockler trim router table to use exclusively for round overs. Your review was very helpful in my decision to get one.

Thanks.

I just ordered that book!

I don’t know… I really had to think about that price…!!

I still don’t see how they can do it… A Penny for the book, $3.99 shipping = Delivered $4.00!

Can’t beat that!

BUT, How can they do it?! Does not make sense…

Thank you!

Thanks Lance
I have downloaded all 4 Delta grams posted to date, read and enjoyed them immensely.
My Grandfather had these in his shop and I read them as a boy. He passed away some 20+ years ago and these have brought back some emotional memories, in a very good way.
I am Planning to record them to CD so I can share them with my son, grandson and my 4yr.old great-grandson who is already showing interest in bending nails in cutoffs at my shop.
You are a very generous friend to the LJs by making these available as downloads, [and not on a CD for $19.95 + S. H.] ;-) . I’m certain that many more woodworkers will benefit from them thru your generosity.

Is there an overall Index or list of ALL of the issues with a brief note of the contents?

If not, why not just start at the beginning and go through them?

That is in the works Joe I got my first request for a certain Project I don’t have an index of the projects and we do want to create an Index so people don’t have to be going through a hundred issues to find what the want to build . On the Tips Joe it is funny the tips are often the shop secrets grandad passed down and said not to share with others it was a different time back then the man in the know had the better job and if you were in the dark you were unemployed

I don’t like websites that are afraid of things like that…

They haven’t watched the movie ”Miracle on 34th Street” where Santa, working at one famous dept. store like Gimbels or The Broadway or Macy’s would refer children to other Stores if they didn’t what they wanted… or if another store had one of better quality than they had… The Practice really worked and ended up making MORE people visiting their store!

Same thing…

you are so right there Joe :-)
talking by experience in a small scale I know the benefit of not being afraid of
saying to people where they can get what they want if you don´t can
fullfill there demand …. its not a shame to say to people sorry we don´t do that or have that in the store
and let them know where to get the best help to solve a specific problem
maybee you didn´t earned a dime but you got a longterm satisfird costummer :-)
