  1. I usually use google patent search: http://www.google.com/patent

    It returns results in pdf as well.

  2. Or just look up the same patent on Google and view it in your browser:

    http://www.google.com/patents

  3. I concur! Google patents is where it’s at!

  4. 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

  5. I see you’ve found my favorite patent….
