I am 78 years old. My wife and I are downsizing and moving into an assisted
living community. I have sold most of my tools but I still have something
that I don't want to get rid of, but I must. I have a collection of
do-it-yourself magazines. They are Popular Mechanics, Popular Science,
Mechanics Illustrated, Handyman etc. They take up 22 feet of shelf space and
there are 756 of them. The oldest is a 1941 Popular Mechanics that my Dad
bought me when I was 12 Years old. From then on I was hooked. Many were
issued during the war years of WWII. I quit buying them in the early 80's
when they quit publishing in a how-to-do-it format and publised in a
magazine format. I have indexed many of the projects. For example there are
20 issues that have how-to- build boat plans. I would like to get 20 cents
per copy or best offer. The whole lot must go. These books are far too heavy
and costly to ship. I live about 30 minutes from the Morgantown Exit on the
Pennsylvania Turnpike. About 30 miles west of Philadelphia. Anyone
interested can e-mail me for more information. I know that you don't want
folks using this group to sell things but I hope you will forgive me. I have
an attachment to them and just can't destroy them. Getting old sucks!!

I plan to also place this on the home improvement group.
Love reading those, esp from the 40's, thru maybe 1953. Buy them from
antique stores, and read them cover to cover. Many good hints there,
those old farts were pretty sharp. I dump the excess on my son, and
would get yours, except I'm in Montana. Hope they find a good home.
