    Dear Editor,
    I am a scrollsawer and woodcarver from Germany. I also am a subscriber of woodcarving illustrated and when I stay in the US or Canada, I try to purchase the latest issue of scrollsawing. I ordered your back issues CDs for scrollsawing some months ago and here is my problem:
    When I subscribe to one of your magazines it costs me double the price (shipping and so on). When I purchase CDs or back issues, it is quite the same. After I had paid the customs duty, the price for the CDs was even more than double of the original price. Some American magazines have turned to offering their issues as pdf-downloads or by platforms as Zinio etc. Wouldn't it be a good idea to do the same? I guess a lot of woodworkers here in Europe would appreciate that and subscribe the magazines for a fair price. I would like to add, that of course your magazine prize i s fair, but the cost of shipping and so on is a very high drawback for some of us. I'm going to retire in 2 years and I am planning to do lots of woodworking then, but on the other side I will have less money then and will have to calculate it very hard. It would be nice to hear from you and perhaps to hear (read) the opinions of other members.
    yours

    Greetings,
    Digital subscriptions are something we have been, and continue to discuss. Right now, we're trying to determine the best way to approach digital subscriptions; there are a variety of ways to do digital subscriptions, but since we've got a small staff--Mindy, Jon and I handle the physical magazines for Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts, Woodcarving Illustrated, and the special issues (such as Pyrography) with Shannon helping out from other angles. Plus, I'm in charge of the websites for Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts, Woodcarving Illustrated, and Pyrography Online. We don't have the resources to create a digital subscription product more than once, so we want to do it right the first time.

    Bottom line: We're working on digital subscriptions, but we don't have any immediate plans to release digital subscriptions.

    Best Regards,
    Bob Duncan

      Many thanks, Bob, for your answer.
      But I am still interested in what other members think about it. So I hope some of them are going to take part in this discussion.
      Best wishes

        I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

        Reply to Question about tilting head saws
        by Bill Wilson
        I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

        Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

        And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

        Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....
