I was looking at this book on amazon “Making and Mastering Wood Planes” (This one) then I was searching on google and found this pdf file (Making and Mastering Wood Planes PDF) Is this the same book? Same authors and title. Unless the pdf verison is a older edition, but if it has same good info and saves me about 25 bucks I fine with that. If you are interested in making handplanes, checkout the pdf!

Yes – But only if you can live with your conscience in knowing in in your soul, that somebody put their life work into writing the book.

Not theft if the book is old enough that it is now in the public domain. In any event, I wouldn’t download it from there. Too many skanky websites at .ru.

“Too many skanky websites at .ru”

Agreed. Those domains are controlled by the rooskies, and you might get more than you bargained for.

Yeah the Russians don’t really care about copyright and aren’t affected by our laws so they copy books and put them up on websites. I wouldn’t doubt they are infected pdfs that install malware to steal your identity, banking info, etc. There is a lot of that going on from Russia and Eastern Europe.

Have your say...
