Tales and directions from old timers on how to do things the old way. Before electricity and electronics. Back when you had to use your hands, brains, and brawn.

My dad gave me books 1-3 when i was a youngster. Never paid much attention to them until a few years ago. Now i find myself looking through them quite often. There is a wealth of information in these books.
