I’m looking for a year’s worth of old Fine Woodworking magazines for some spring break reading on the road.

Yes – I know they are available new. I’m hoping to buy some from a fellow LJ that may not save these forever and ever. I will buy your trash! haha

Hey Eric, I have about 150 issues of FWW all in excellent shape which I’m looking to sell.

You can also get all issues 1975-2014 on DVD-ROM for $64 on Amazon.

Thanks for the revelation, but the OP asked for magazines, not digital.

Perhaps the OP has the ability to view the digital content, but didn’t know it existed. $64 bucks is a hell of a deal.

Some libraries have an used book store and also sell magazines. The 2 libraries in my neighborhood occasionally sell FWW and others. $.50 each.

I have bought older issues of magazines at Half Priced Books. I think I paid $.50 each for them. It is a nation wide chain, check their website for stores near you.

I just gave away a complete set from Issue #2 to last year when I took out a digital subscription and discovered that all the articles I was keeping were available as PDFs! Shipping costs would be expensive for paper and there was really no interest locally.
