    There was some discussion on another thread about Lindsay books. The company has gone out of business, but another company that I know of still sell the books.

    I have contactd said company abot the books, back when I got the last Lindsay catalog saying "I'm retiring, this is the last catalog."

    I can't find their exact reply at the moment, but what I remember is being totally relieved and thinking that "these Lindsay books still will be around for years to come - no need to rush out and blow next week's paycheck." I believe that they are printing, or will print, whatever books will go out of stock.

    I could be wrong about that. But what I'm not wrong about, is that most of his books were out of copyright, and are and always will be available on the web in PDF format for free (see archive.org, et.al.). Exception being the Gingery bokks which I believe he owned the copyright to, and may still; in which case the existing copies will skyrocket in value

    Thank you Sir, for your time and effort spent to chase down what most will consider a priceless resource.

    Isn't "Dynamo" the proper term for a generator / alternator ???

    I only remember it being used that way by people from across the pond, kinda like bonnet for hood.
    I may be wrong, it happened once before :D

    Is that per book, according to UPS, or can you get a bunch of books for the same ship fee... ???
    If not, somebody has an enormous gall here...

    Look for the book by name on Ebay. There some resellers on there. They even have some of the titles that aren't sold by Lindsay any more, his older stuff.
