Hey fellow LJ’s. I am looking for anyone who may have a pdf file of Sop Notes Issues 1 thru the most current. I am an unemployed beginner woodworker. I have seen these on different sites, but all want money to download. I just do not have it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have every ShopNotes and just about every Woodsmith… idk how long it would take to send to you. I think its at least 4GB total. Your best to download a Torrent program example (Bittorrent) and then search for them in a creditable torrent search. I got mine that way and they all look great and work fine. I am in process of downloading every issue of Fine Woodworker and Popular Woodworking right now..

I like ShopNotes and I got mine the same way Dcase above did.

I think I am beginning to notice they are now just offering more solutions to the same problems they solved before and not necessarily better ones. I was wondering how long they could come up with better jigs, fixtures, and shop furniture before they simply ran out of good ideas. I think they might be getting there. Nice magazine though.

Congrats on your copyright violations. Keep it up and before long there will be no ShopNotes.

I’m surprised Shop Notes doesn’t make these availabe on CD or online. I was looking a few weeks back for past issues. All I was able to come up with was binders to hold a years work of the magazine:-((

Theft is theft, whether you’re unemployed or not, or the chances of getting caught are slim. This kind of thing isn’t sharing, it’s the same as walking into a store and walking out with a something you didn’t pay for. You aren’t sticking to the man or getting something for nothing, you’re making it harder for people to make a living.

I agree, Bob.

It could be one of the reasons our subscription prices are rising…everyone else pays?

How fair is that?

I am as happy as the next guy to get something for free, but you seriously want 100+ free issues?

Go to Barnes and Noble and sit down and read them. Its legalized copyright violation that everyone on this page has violated.

There is at least one that doesn’t sit in Barnes and Noble to read for free:-))

I like free stuff too and have looked at the back issues on that site and probably will more too. I never thought about it being a pirate site before now; maybe a bit naive?, but never thought about it that way. I would buy a CD of back issues if one were available.

I am a online member of FWW so I haven’t got their CD. Not really into furniture making, yet;-))

Never been to a Barnes and Noble, so not me either.

What is it, a book store? They would have all the issues?

If you want a legal preview, read the cover of the magazine. Hence why some companies plastic wrap their magazines… so you have to buy it to read the pages.
