"Exceptional technical books for xperimenters,inventors, tinkerers, mad scientists, and "Thomas-Edison-types." I'v enjoyed these books and reading his catalog for years and today received the last catalog because he's going to retire...Solar energy, home foundry. machine shop work, metal working, house building, Radio experimenter, old industrial manuals, reprints of forgotten books. .....more... Many humorous
What a loss!
He’ll be missed. He had a great catalog of unique items. Back along I sold some books through him. Good guy.
So He’s just going to let it shut down?
“Back along I sold some books through him.”
That really stinks. They had some good stuff. I actually built a Gingery Charcoal Foundry.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel that I’m losing an old friend. I always looked forward to getting Lindsay’s catalog. It was almost like getting a letter from a crazy old uncle that everyone forgot about. Mr. Lindsay, if you’re reading this, rest assured you made a difference and you kept us curious. Before I discovered Lindsay Books, I thought I was the only one left. You showed that there are others out there. Thank you!
WHAT?!! NO!. I have half of his catalog on my bookshelf. Time to buy what I can while it’s still there. I built a foundry on my patio with the info from his books, along with all sorts or projects an wonderful, useful things.
