Good luck.
I have seen offering more near $1.00 a copy on volume and supposed to be in good conditions. It was Fine Woodworking. I passed on the deal.

I have been looking for issue #2 of WOOD Magazine. Do you have it? I would need it shipped but will pay for it. Let me know.

You might consider donating them to a charity…then claim the $3/copy as a tax deduction. It’s going to get more and more difficult to sell back issues because publishers are now offering their complete archives on DVDs—usually for under $100.

I wouldn’t mind having everyone of them except my wife would kill me. I wouldn’t spend the money on magazines even if I had it. There’s way to many things I need for my shop and don’t have much to spend anyways. If I was you I’d sell them on Ebay for the going rate one at a time. That’d be a lot of money you could put into your shop. Good luck.

Try Ebay. I’ve sold FWW magazines in lots of 10 on
there before. Before they started publishing CD/DVD
archives of articles values for back issues were pretty
strong but after the archives came out demand
plummeted.

I bought 30 issues of shop notes and 33 issues of Wood today for .25 cents apiece.

This is a terrible teal being offered.
