  • Project Gutenberg

    Project Gutenberg is the first place that ever offered free ebooks.
    The goal of the project was to take classic works who's copyrights had expired and reproduce them in a format which was accessible to the general population.

    This innovative idea got its name from Gutenberg who developed the printing press and movable type. Before that point works were hand written and therefore not available to the masses.

    I am attaching several pages from a book called Handicraft for Boys by A.Frederick Collins, inventor of the wireless telephone. Copyright 1918.

    I love the prices of the saws and the wood. I hope you find the pages entertaining and informative. More books like this are available from Project Gutenberg

    Thanks Carl for the info! I would love to have the one pictured on the bottom row. $25.00!

    I for one really enjoy seeing this kind of stuff.

      Second row ... next to last picture. I lost out on one very similar to this on eBay last week. It went for $104. No base but the main unit was really nice.

          You can still get woods at that price.
          It didn't say board feet and it didn't specify a width!

            Ebony....50 cents a foot

            I really got a kick out of the "fancy woods for scrolling."

              Apology.

              I thought I got the book from Project Gutenberg, but I was mistaken I got it from the Internet Archives. The entire book is available Here

              The Internet Archives also has links to Gutenberg.
              Sorry for the confusion. It is still out of copyright and still available for free.

                  I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                  Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                  He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

                  We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
