    Lloyd, I've been reading a lot of old Popular Mechanics magazines lately, Google has scanned them and posted them online. I found one from 1921 that you might get a kick out of. The cover story is on page 336.

    There is a wealth of great old info in these old mags. Lots of how to articles, camper trailer plans, truck camper plans, make a DIY welder kit…

    Can't say I'm a fan of what PM has become, but I do like the old ones.

    I've saved a bunch of other links if you're interested.

    Peace

    I hope you can just point folks to the site in general, there is so much lost DIY info there… I grew up knowing older guys that had mill in their garage, to have that skill..oh well.

    BTW it's not just PM and PS magazines there… theres a crapload of others too.

    Peace
