Old shop books

I have a couple old 'how to' books: "The boy mechanic" by the Popular
Mechanics company (Simon and Schuster), printed 1962 and "Giant Home
Workshop Manual" Popular Science Publishing (Grosset & Dunlap) Copyright
1941, reprinted 1946. These are obviously reprints from the various
magazines.
I'd like to get some similar ones if they weren't too expensive. Are
there others out there? Names? How to buy? Ebay?

Lee-Valley Hardware site and do a search on [ classic reprints ]. You will get dozens of choices, many of which are old tip collections. These are new reprints, in good quality bindings, some paper, some hard cover.
Others are interesting in various way, including the old "Bull of the Woods" reprints -- 3 volumes now -- about life in an old-time machine shop.

has that entire Boy Mechanic set plus a few others, all at nice prices. Some of their reprints of woodworking books go for under $6. Lee Valley for price if available. Otherwise, Harold pointed out the Lindsay Books URL.
