Due to a previous machine tool thread, I’ve been told I need to refer to a back issue of MEW. However, I was wondering if there’s an index type database somewhere whereby the issue can be identified by particular topic?
Furthermore, does the digital subscription produce a pdf of back issues for reading offline?
Thanks in advance.

On the page about the archive it says
"Please note that the Online Archive does not allow you to download and read issues offline. If you have a Digital or Print + Digital Subscription you can download your subscription issue by following the instructions at www.model-engineer.co.uk/digitalaccess."
To me it sounds like you can access the archive online, and can only download new issues as they are published.
I wanted some back issues, I have the print only subscription and contacted them to upgrade it. I gave up, first call they told me I could only do it at renewal time, and if i wanted it now i would have to buy a second subscription.
Second call to them, I can upgrade, but have to cancel my existing subscription. I was not totally convinced I would get a refund. Plus as my wife bought the subscription using paypal, I would have to do the whole lot by email.
A lot of faf, and knowing my luck I would either end up with no refund or missing a few issues.
I am now just buying them on ebay.
What issues do you want I have a few duplicate issues.

I've decided I'll do the same Adrian! However I'd rather buy them off of a fellow forum member, so thanks for the offer.
I need issues 156 & 157. If you have these, I'll BACS you the money.

I think they can take a print sub and convert it into a credit to extend a digital sub, but I'm not 100% sure of the details.
If you get stuck, email me and I can put you in touch with someone who can help.
For paper back issues mags-uk usually has about a year's worth of issues available (varies due to demand).
Pocketmags has digital back issues no 192, August 2012, plus the 25 year special.
