If you’re into saws, I’ve got a video by the late Tom Law called Hand Saw Sharpening. It was made by ALP Productions in 1999. It’s free to the first person who tells me he/she needs it. There’s just a couple of catches.

1. You gotta be in the US. Sorry, I’m not being xenophobic it’s just that I’m too poor to afford postage to Europe.

2. You gotta have a VCR because this is semi-oldschool – a VHS tape. Well at least it’s not Beta or 8mm.

For those of you with more money in your pocket than VCRs on your shelf, don’t despair – Lie Nielsen now sells this video on DVD for about $25.

Since I retired my VCR a while back, I will not be asking for this, but thank you for letting us know where we
can get the DVD.

what’s a VCR? I was born in 1987 and barely know what a saw is :p

I need to learn about saw sharpening and I have a combo DVD/VCR, I will put my hand up if no one else speaks up. (I’m already a recent recipient of your generosity)

Wayne, I’ve already deleted your address and all I remember is northern CA. Please PM me the whole thing.

I’ve got a few hundred books I was going to offer up too, but I think it might be easier just to take them to the dump. Might not be enough people who can still manage the whole lift and turn thing with the pages now that they’ve got those kindle things with the touch-screens. :)

JustJoe, I personally feel that the print edition is so much better than the digital. The dump will learn nothing from the wealth of knowledge you deposit there. Perhaps your public library would be happy to put the on their shelf’s or offer them for sale in a fund raiser. In either event the books might make it into good foster care. A case in point is the number of people, like me lol, who gravitate here and/or other places seeking just the kind of knowledge you have learned and acquired from these same books. Why did the title ‘Fahrenheit 451’ pop into my head when I read your post, lol.

Please donate them to the library, I just picked up a beautiful leatherbound copy of Krenov’s “The Fine Art of
Cabinetmaking” at our library a few months ago for $2, when I am not reading it, it looks great on the shelf
with all my other woodworking books.

Joe I’d be happy to take first dibs at the books, but the library is also a great suggestion. I’d be happy to pay shipping at least too.

Thanks for the video Joe. It went from the mailbox to the VCR in about 5 minutes from its arrival. :)
