I saw this on another forum and thought I'd post it here. The website owner of Vintage Farm Plans has an anouncement on his page stating he can no longer afford to keep it so you need to download what ever interest you now before it is shut down. http://www.vintagefarmplans.com/ is the site and most of the stuff I found useful were in the Machine Shop page. All articles and plans are in PDF format.

Trent,

Talk about a blast from the past, Kinda reminds me of reading my father's issues of "Mechanics Illustrated" magazine back in the 60's.
The B&W pic of the guy working in his shop, while wearing a white shirt and pleated dress pants really took me back. Today he would be in jeans and a T-shirt.

Although dated, there is some pretty cool stuff there, thanks for the link

What size are the plans and would it be possible to get them emailed to me seeing the site is down (and I somehow missed this thread when it was first posted). Thanks for any help in this.

They are PDF files. I could try and email them one at a time to you and anyone else that wants them. I saved the ones that were machine shop related and the submarine.

Grendeljaeger,
I PM'ed you my email address. I'll gladly accept any of the files you downloaded on machine shop or submarine, etc. Thanks!

Polish Taipan,

There was one about a home made furnace for melting metal
Do you still have these plans? I have built a propane-powered furnace for casting but I've yet to fire it up. I'd like to see other plans about the furnaces.

How much space do they take up? I could store them for download next week if it's not to awful high on an unlimited bandwidth server ;)
