I found a few online books/magazines on woodworking at www.issuu.com. To me, the following two seemed quite interesting. The one on hand tools show the anatomy of a hand plane, how to sharpen blades and scrapers, etc. The one on router has plenty of jigs (some of them I saw for the first time).

There’s a magazine in there on commercial woodworking tools called “Tools and Machinery T+M”, which has pictures of the commercial production machines from Europe.

Wow, if I were the author of this I sure would hope to be collecting royalties on it. I know I’d feel pretty bad if someone took my work and didn’t pay me for it…but truthfully I do not know if this web site is paying royalties so maybe its legit.

I don’t think the material was stolen. It appears to me that Issuu is a publishing site for nearly anything and authors, editors, etc willingly submit their material. I gets greater exposure. I think this is a fantastic resource.

Have your say...
