      I've bought from him twice, both times the product was excellent and shipping was next day after payment (PayPal.) I would buy from him again without hesitation.

      The two manuals I bought are clean, crisp, legible reproductions , comb bound, and have heavier paper covers.

        I guess the quality of the reproduction depends on the quality of the original.
        In My case the transaction went off with out any trouble and the Manuals shipped quickly but unless there is NO other option I won't be a repeat customer, My manuals were less than what I would call a manual. They were more like ''cliff notes''.

              So Ozarkwoodworker is selling a photocopy of a copyrighted Lagun manual for 1/3 of what the manufacturer charges.

              Anyone else see a problem with this?

              Do they sell photocopies of HSM magazine too?

                The only problem I see is that it may not be good. In today's world you can download a manual for almost anything for FREE from the manufacturer. Radar detectors, kitchen appliances ect. Most of the large tool companies have them on line, both user manual & parts. Grizzly even Horror Fright have them.
                The only things I can't find a manual for are SWMBO & little kids.

                    I wonder if half of these guys making big bucks on manuals have a copyright agrement to do so.So in other words are these pirate copies?Alistair

                      Yeah, I see the problem too. There are a couple of other dealers out there selling copies of material that is still available from the manufacturer and often at comparable cost. Folks here are notoriously cheap and those that haven't at least tried to contact the manufacturer about manual reprints are lazy to boot.

                        Easy money if you have a photocopier, and buy every available manual your set for life.I know sometimes there is a bit tidying up to do.I searched for years for a copy for my milling machine and just got one.if I sold a copy on the internet say ebay etc I know at least one guy who would be turning these out in volume at huge cost to the public.I asked him once Tony thats his name do you have written permission to do this he became very unhelpful and annoyed by this question I wonder why.Alistair

                          a lot of the manuals circulating on the net for free, are copies of his copies .

                            Nicholas thanks I saw that a few days ago but would like the actual manual for a FTV 1S but that one has helped.

                              I've purchased a couple of manuals from this guy and they were both great. They even look better than copies I've received from manufactures. Sure some of the manuals he has can be found else where, but he also carries a lot of manuals that can't be. And his manuals are not just cheap photocopies.

                              Plus, this guy has spent time helping me over the phone to help me identify my machine and help me locate parts. And his name is actually Ray, Alistair Hosie. It's at the bottom of every page on his site: ozarkwoodworker.com
