    Niki was a great man... it's nice to keep his work alive.

    Here is a link to a very large PDF file that contains a lot of Nikis work.
    WARNING... Be prepared for a very long download.
    Have Fun!

      Thanks for the heads up on the link. I had saved only a little of his great ideas.

      FYI it's about a ~68 MB download

          I think the server is getting hammered. The transfer rate on my download has gone to a crawl.

              Try right clicking and select 'save link as...'

              Worked for me.

                  I wasn't able to download the file. After the download completed I tried openinging it and it said the file was corrupted. Did anyone else have this problem?

                      mr_bill.....thanks, that did it. fios is great. 1200 pages in under 1 minute. and what a collection of stuff!

                      it's kind of humbling when you review all the neat things niki shared so selflessly, most of which he apparently created out of necessity. hopefully, i'll be able, in some small way, to demonstrate a similar sense of woodworking generosity.

                          It's nice to be reminded of Niki (and others). I recall that whenever I saw that he posted, I'd be anxious to see what he'd done - it was usually something brilliant that used commonly available tools/materials in an uncommon way. He is missed.

                            His efforts were truly unique. I'd like to repost a tribute and thank you to him while he was still alive.

                              for those of us who never had the pleasure of meeting niki, his photo was featured in issue 182, the march, 2008 issue of wood magazine on page 14. he won that month's award as "top tipster" for a table saw crosscut sled that cut picture frame miters (doubtlessly included in the previouisly linked PDF). the little bio that appeared under his photo referred to him as a "prolific tip-poster". talk about understatement.
