I am searching for a copy of the Poor Man’s Guide Magazine, Issue No. 2. The one which details how Weesay Freeman built his guitars. If you have a copy for sale, or know where I can buy a copy, please let me know.

" its on PDF file is it not Free to the Public?"

No.  I paid Shane for the PDF version of all three issues.  Definitely would have to be okay'd by him.

The file is more than double the "paperclips" 7 MB limit.

Hello Carl & Tim, i did a request to Shane on his inbox here on the  Nation, and we have to see if and how he will react  ,to the request to put the isseu nr;2 PDF file  here on the Nation for members to download.

Thats all i can do, hope it Help, we will have to wait and see !!  Greeeettsszz A.D.

I sent him a FB message.  He is a busy guy, though.

Had the can, got tired of waiting, made one. Pics here, video at Gas Can Guitar

Nice one Tim seen the video this is my feulcan build from 2020. Greeettsszz A.D. at the time i was keen on proving the Coleman people rong about the non recycleble remark on the can (see insurt ) . 

 Nice. That headstock is wild. I see you left the handle on too. 

Thanks Yep ! its part of the Can, even got the Spout still in Red Plastic !

The “do not reuse” doesn’t have anything to do with recycling, it’s because of the caustic nature of what was inside? If you fill it with gas, the residue from the lantern fuel will mix & burn dirty causing smoke? 

I never heard of lantern fuel causing tics, but then I never drank any myself.
