Blacksmithing info/texts?

In response to my flint striker question, 2 folks from this NG sent the following link:
http://www.countryside.gov.uk/NewEnterprise/Economies/craftpublications.asp

while the page opens, i can't get the link to the texts to open---and that's aggrevating me this morning, as it seems there is a lot of info i really need to read in there! I keep getting errors that the links are inactive, and also, it won't find my Adobe Acrobat reader to open the files. Anyone have other links to these texts?
Also, any other link for making some basic tools (tongs, things like that)? I'm VERY new to the field, and sort of learning by the seat of my pants here.
Thanks a lot for any info John
ps, not trying to be surly about the folks who sent the links. They look to contain an enormous amount of info---it's just that they seem to be outdated, or my browser settings, for whatever reason, won't let me open them! I tried to respond to the folks via email, but got the messages bounced back too.

I know that this is not the answer to your question, because I don't have other links for them, but I had no problems getting the .pdf files to download. I am using Outlook Express 6. I followed the directions that were directly above the list of the publications about right clicking on the name of the publication, and choosing the "Save Target As" option in the menu that appears. I downloaded "The Blackmith's Manual Illustrated" and "Metals for Engineering Craftsmen". The instructions did say that some of the links took you to to other pages containing the files because of the size of some of the documents. One of these was "The Blacksmith's Craft". Once I was taken to the page that the link sent me to, I did the same thing I mentioned above with right clicking the name of the document, and it started the download process for me as well.

You might want to try something other than Microsh*t products. I just tried it with Opera v7.54 and it seemed to save just fine.

Just download 'em outright. You want to _have_ them anyway. Then open 'em with Reader.

I had no problem with that link when it was posted here before so out of curiousity I just tried it again and had no problem with downloading and reading these files about 10 minutes ago so the links are not outdated. I'm running Netscape 7.0 and Acrobat Reader 4.0.
Did you try saving the .pdf files to your hard drive and opening the files directly with Acrobat? It seems to me I had do that on the old computer the first time I went there when it was first posted,, but I didn't have to do that this time with this computer.
