    I know this one has been covered a million times before, but is there any new thoughts on a DVD? The reason I ask is, our basement was flooded last July and my HSM copies (from day one) ended up in two wheelbarrow's full of soggy messy garbage.............I would be first in line to purchase one.

      For many years the going rate for collections of HSMs were current list price x number of issues. Since 2008 the market has softened, though. I tried selling a near-complete set back a couple of years and people thought my pricing was ridiculous.

      One thing, though, the mags from the '80s are more desirable than the later ones. Harder to find ..

      Please post the final price when they sell, would you? Any data points about the value would be a boon to all.

        You could always give them away as long as the receiving end pays shipping. About a year ago I got a 'pile' of HSM magazines that completely filled two flat rate usps boxes. I was glad to pay shipping costs. Someday I'll let them go the same way.

              Interesting.
              In that Model Engineer which has been going since 18 ought blonk is hard to sell as there are so many free copies about or free for collection.

              What happens is that when a model engineer dies his wife gives his copies to the local club as a gesture but the clubs get this all the while and get inundated, once they have a set as a library copy they don't want or need the rest but it's impolite to refuse. multiply this by the number of clubs which is high in the UK, then by the number of members and you see the logistical situation.

              However Model Engineers Workshop is very sought after but that's only been running from summer 1990 but still commands a high price

                If you hear of any more such inundations, please feel free to point the club in my direction - I'd be happy to pay for postage plus something towards the club's costs, or widows and orphans fund or whatever. There is an English-language bookshop in Brussels, but it doesn't carry much besides "airport novels", and there's always e-bay, but finding specialist periodicals, especially back issues is not easy.

                  i've been a lurker here and actually joined for this post. I would sell them on ebay prices seem pretty high or at least high enough that I can't afford them anymore. If your looking for a good home for them I would be glad to pay shipping.

                  Now the second part I saw this in a earlier post but didn't see an answer: Is their a chance of a complete set being published on CD it would seem that would help out a lot of people.

                      Not likely. Copyright laws are troublesome. Back then, Village Press bought first North American rights to print - a one-time deal. Some of the authors of those first issues are now unavailable for various reasons and getting permission for reissue in any form would be difficult or impossible. There are some provisions now for certain electronic publishing rights, but not for those old issues. George may be able to clarify or correct my impression here.
