  • Free issue/subscription delay

    On 9/20, I filled out an online subscription form, indicating that I wanted the free issue of SSW&C. Since then, I have been awaiting my first copy.

    So today, one month later, I receive.....

    a reply card asking if I'm interested in getting a free copy of the magazine!

    I mean, didn't I say so already??? Well, I sent it in, grateful I hadn't tossed it with the rest of the flotsam I get. Hopefully my 2nd show of interest in SSW&C was redundant and I'll receive a magazine soon.

    I hope so too, Pete. You're almost guaranteed to like it. I think that is why they take the risk of sending out a freebie.
    I hope they crossed in the mail.

      I'm thinking they dragged their feet so they could chisel another $5.99 out of me for a back copy of the issue with the article about making boxes.

        Pete,
        I don't know how they divide the labor around there (at FC), but I believe that almost everybody there has been in on the flurry of activity to get ready for what sounded like a really snazzy open house. In the middle of that, I think they had another magazine deadline. So they can probably be forgiven.
        I hope you get your issue soon.

          Oh, I know it's not exactly Time-Warner. That's why I used the :P smilie before.

          Just feeding back, 'tis all, like the sign says.

          Maybe if I carp enough, they'll just SEND me a copy of the dagnabbed box issue.

          And a couple more smilies for the road...

          Smily Pete :P

          P.S. Just learned that there's a limit of 4 smilies per post!

            Pete, have you considered buying that scrollsaw workshop collectors set? Its a little thing next to that free issue offer over there ----> . Thats a far better deal then my subscription was for those issues. Once they sell out of those, you will never be able to get em again!! Good luck on getting your boxmaking issue! Dale

              Pete.....Send me an email with your address. I have an extra (unused) copy of the Holiday Issue I'll send you for free. That might tide you over until your free subscription issue arrives!!
              If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

                That IS a good deal, Dale. Geez, even issue #1 is in there! I probably should, but the issue I really want isn't in there.

                I just ordered #24. Realistically, I signed up too late for that to be the freebie.

                  Thank you, Neal, for your kind offer.

                  Thank you, Rob S. of Fox Chapel, for the followup message I received confirming my order.

                    Pete don't be discouraged -- it took months for my subscription to get to me -and I still haven't recieved my free patterns. But it will come.. and just think of all the stuff you will have to work on-- that means you will have to work extra hard cause you will want to make everything..lol

                      Thanks for the kind thought, Sharon.

                      It just takes 4-6 weeks for the free issue wagon to roll, and I was wishin' I had that box issue. In reality I will probably receive the next edition. Solved the problem by ordering the back issue, and I'm too busy right now to make anything besides puzzles anyway.

                        Hi Pete,

                        Please send me a private message with your last name and address and I'll check into things... If you purchase issue #24 and you are getting issue #25 - I'll have to do a little finegalling (sp?) to make sure you don't get a duplicate issue.

                            Question about the holiday issue

                            I see the little picture of it on the home page and elsewhere, but I haven't received that one. Did I miss something or is it not out yet?

                              I received my magazine on my birthday yesterday, after it was posted to me 3.75 months back. I'm very happy with that, because we are relying on the basic postal system rather than some sort of express post. The first copy was pilfered at this end from my mail box it seems, but after I had emailed, another was posted immediately, so I think the service is great.

                              It's a long way from the USA to Adelaide, South Australia.

                              Kind Regards,

                              Buzzer.

                                In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                                Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

                                of the extension is almost finished apart...

                                Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
