Twice a year, we add a bindup of “legacy content” (articles that have appeared in the magazine before) to newsstand copies. While it’s nothing long-time subscribers haven’t already seen, recent subscribers might have missed one or two of the articles. So we’re offering it here, free.

In the December 2017 issue (which mails to subscribers on November 8 and is on newsstands November 21), we’ve included in the newsstand copies “Workholding Solutions” – 32 pages of information on workbenches, clamping mechanisms, sawbenches and more.

p.s. In case you missed it earlier this year, you can get the June one – “Handsaw Basics” – free, too.

    Nice assortment of articles and subjects!

    It would have been a lot nicer if none (or all) of the articles were 2-wide, allowing easier browsing & printing.

    Thank you for these, Megan! Very handy to have kicking around the shop for a quick reference.

    BTW, the Handsaw issue should have been the October issue. Chris’ manic expression and glinting steel saw would inspire more than a few nightmares, I bet. 🙂
