This site is awesome. I found it last night and wanted to share it with you all. (Even though I thought that J0 might make the most use out of it). I would suggest that if you find anything useful here that you download it before it's taken down.


I've been helping my parents pack for a move down south. It's a long road trip, and my Stepdad wants to pretty much give everything away and start fresh. He had every "Wood" magazine ever made as well as many Woodworker's Journals and some other stuff that I didn't want eating up a ton of real estate in my house. They were in great condition, but it was seriously at least 1,000 lbs of magazines. In the end, he did find a friend that took them all off his hands, but I could tell that it was tough for him to let that go.

Except for a few missing issues, the site above had all 210 or so issues ever made of the magazine that you can download in PDF format individually. I've got them all ready when I go back for the next round of helping and I'm going to put them on his Kindle as a surprise.


There's tons of stuff like other magazines and books on topics like First Aid and Medicine, Farming, Firearms, Masonry, Dentistry, Cooking, Herbalism and just about everything a survivalist should know. Tons of information that us normal folk that aren't prepping for the zombie apocalypse could use too.


Maybe some of you could download some of that stuff to a kindle and begin a new hobby with all of that free time instead of being all paranoid about events that you have zero control over. :)

Are you saying that people should save these files on their own personal storage device?
Or that people should store these files on cloud servers controlled by people who don't give a hoot about you? Locations which will become unavailable at the merest whim?

I don't do cloud storage for anything important. I wouldn't recommend that anybody put anything important on the cloud that wasn't backed up in at least 2 places in their personal storage.

That being said, it does have its uses. It's definitely nice to be able to get to stuff on the fly no matter where you're at with just a password in case you forget to bring a drive around with you. If you see something you like then by all means put it on the cloud. As you said though, don't cry about it when it disappears one night and you didn't back it up. :)

I believe in solving problems, not sharing them. Pity would be no more, If we did not MAKE men poor - William Blake


With that 8.1 earthquake in Mexico, that's just another reminder to us Los Angelinos (as if we needed one) to be prepared.

Thanks for the link, SIX.

No problem. Lot's of good stuff in there. Those PDFs seem to load up with ease on any more modern tablet or Kindle and are very readable. I've learned more about them in the last week than I ever have since I have no interest in them but my parents use them all the time now.

I've also got some other things like Ugly's Electrical References book and a few other things, but they were from a different site. That Ugly's book is great, and I know a few electricians that carry it around with them wherever they go.
