This site is super handy (pat2pdf) you can get a patent sent to you via PDF instead of a staring at a bunch of TIFFs!
I usually use google patent search: http://www.google.com/patent
It returns results in pdf as well.
Or just look up the same patent on Google and view it in your browser:
I concur! Google patents is where it’s at!
Or use this handy script, which essentially does the same.
The images from the USPTO are usually much better resolution than PDFs from Google.
We also used them in this project: Perpetual Storytelling Apparatus http://storyteller.allesblinkt.com
I see you’ve found my favorite patent….
