I haven’t just been collecting tools.
I have also been snagging information as I can.
“Your Old Time Bookstore” has had one hell of a sale going for reprints of old Machinist and other technical books and I have been keeping the Post Man busy.
Some of those little pamphlet style reprints are going for as little as $2.60 apiece and I think the most I paid for one was $5.50.
They have complete sets if you want to get them all at once and some of them are the old Lindsey books that are getting hard to find.
You can’t beat that price for brand new books.
Some of it is arcane info and some of it is pretty much timeless.
My way of thinking is that it is better to have and not need than to need and not have, especially when it is that inexpensive to have dead tree versions.
