I got 80 "Fine WoodWorking" magazines from JOAT for $1 each plus shipping.
(About $107 total.) I've only pulled a few out of the box. The earliest is
(so far) is July/August 1980 and the latest is October 2003. Each one is
*full* of good stuff!
I got 'em and y'all didn't. Naa na na Naaa naa. <g>

I've purchased a lot of old FWW on ebay and paid from $3-$5 each for
them. I'm surprised he didn't try that.
It ain't about the money, I'd druther offer here first.
Anyway, Mark lied - it wasn't 80, it was 81. LOL
Georges Clemenceau supposedly said, "War is too important a matter to be
left to the military". If this is so, it is then obvious that peace is
too precious to be left to politicians.

Some tunes I like.
This week I got GIVEN #1-114 FWW, plus 1-91 FHB (missing 5 in the 30's) and
8 of the "FWW on.." series.....
Before you think bad thoughts....I made the customer take $500 CDN for
'em...he's welcome to give the money to charity if he wants...
Does that count for two gloats???
Yeah, well last summer I was given over 100 FWW, including issue #1,
with the only stipulation being that I had to also accept several
boxes of Woodsmith, Shop Notes, and several other magazines. I still
haven't looked through all of them, but my collection became so large
I had to buy another bookcase and several magazine holders.
All free, my friends. heheheheheheheh
jmac (who now has a couple of dozen duplicates and doesn't know what
to do with them) Now I can say neener neener neener. : )
That caught my eye, too!
Last fall, an old friend gave me a huge stack of FWW, starting with #1, and
continuing until well into the color era. I've enjoyed them greatly. The
Krenov style plane, described in Issue #126, is almost complete, for his
collection. Using some cocobolo he brought home from Mexico maybe twenty
I have also enjoyed the several woodworking projects we have done together
since then. He's not up to doing very much of the 'heavy lifting' any
more, but he sure knows how to put a finish on the work we do together.
I *never* find anything useful at garage sales. Just maternity clothes,
ugly 70's ashtrays and exercise machines made for people much small than my
6'2" 250 lb frame.
Congrats. Good gloat. You do have a magazine rack in the "necessary room"?
