I've subscribed to many of the wood magazines for many years and I keep all
the old copies. I thoroughly enjoy reading them and that includes
ShopNotes. However, if I had to fork out $300 all at one time for them I'd
really think hard. $4/issue seems a little pricey and you could buy a
pretty nice tool of some sort for $300. Yeah, yeah, I know I spent as much
over the years to buy my collection, but it was only $20 a year...
I think a better option, or at least a cheaper option is to look for used
mags. I know used FWW mags are advertised frequently for sale. I would
search around first (check eBay) to see if you could pick up someone's
ShopNotes collection for about $150. I just bought 120 (maybe 110) issues
of FWW for $75 (drive-by gloat), but I think you can usually pick up used
mags for $2-3 per issue.
