“Our goal is to preserve the inspired DIY spirit of the past. Our free project reprints cover farm machines, the woodshop, machine shop, boats, archery and more. These vintage plans come from a half-century ago when do-it-yourself enthusiasts turned wood, metal and old motors into useful workhorses, functional tools, and toys.” Thanks Terrie! – Link.

Tons and tons of great projects, in downloadable PDF format.

    That ‘Marauder’ is awesome! I need to build one, then get a couple of friends together and re-enact scenes from Silent Running. We’ll have to draw straws to see who gets to play Bruce Dern and whoever’s left will play the robot drones.

    Looks like a big track toy. I loved that toy. Someone needs to bring it back. I have cats to scare!
