- Shop Notes Back Issue Library - The First 20 Years
- Brand: Shop Notes | Category: DVDs
After getting back into woodworking after a layoff of more than 25 years, I bought the recently published Back Issue Library from Shop Notes.
As advertised, the DVD contains the first 120 issues of Shop Notes. I am still going through the various issues.
The cover of each issue is displayed for you to browse or…
Search by title, article summary annd index only or…
Search full article text (including title, article summary and index)
With that said, I typed in “workbench” and got 51 articles containing “workbench”.
Typing in the word “jig” resulted in 252 articles containg the word “jig”. That’s a boatload of reading! :-)
Basically, what you see on the screen is exactly what the magazine looks like with two pages displayed just as if you had it open on your desk.
By the way, the media is in pdf format. I had no problem printing out page 36-39 of Issue 109 (Plans for shop vac and cyclone separator cart). In fact, I built that cart today. I just printed out the article and took it to the garage and started slinging sawdust. :-)
For $99, I think I got a fair deal and a whole lot of catching up to do.
And…I subscribed to shop Notes two issues ago.
Hope you find this review usefull.
Note: I did find one page that was upside down. :-) I guess the person in charge of scanning goofed up.
