We do more than sell manuals.


We are a father and son team that operate a 5,000 sq/ft metal machine and wood shop. We've had to design our own machines (including CNC), and fixtures for our wood working. We make some of the smallest most precise inlay in the world. We maintain tolerances of 0.0005" in a 12" strip of wood, and we have duck calls with over 1,100 pieces of wood in them.


We've collected various machines and accumulated lots of manuals over the years, and we like to help keep these old machines running. Some of the manuals on this site are from machines in our shop like the Rockwell 10" unisaw, Rockwell uniplane, Walker Turner 1100 16" band saw, etc.. Check out our About Us page, and feel free to Contact Us with any questions. Our main site is Ozarkwoodworker.com. We plan to offer more products in the future. Check out our Ozark Shop Talk Blog.
We offer free domestic shipping, and upgrades to express methods. We ship every business day. International shipping is available. We offer First Class and Priority Flat Rate. Shipping cost should be calculated automatically during checkout.
