Don't wish to subscribe or wait 5 months for Web subscriber articles to be unlocked? But do want to read the hottest reviews, technique workshops and interviews TODAY?

Consider buying Single article PDFs or our great value Full Issue PDF. 

Most magazine articles we publish are available as a high quality PDF for you to buy for a small fee. These use the same page layout as the printed magazine (with adverts removed). You'll find a 'BUY PDF VERSION' red button clearly displayed at the end of each article (if a PDF is available).

Once purchased, your PDF will be listed in the DOWNLOADS section of your MY ACCOUNT (accessed at the top-left of every SOS web page) from where you can download the file as often as you wish.

  • Note: Single article PDFs are not free of charge (not even for subscribers).
  • If you have purchased a PDF article as a digital download file, this is a non-refundable transaction. However, should the file be corrupt and unreadable, please contact us and we will email you a working version of the file at our cost.

Full Issue PDF: You asked for it. We listened. And here it is.
