              I'm also English.



              I used to post on the main UK woodworking forum but they appear to have locked me out, so now my activities are almost exclusively the preserve of their quieter and more genteel rival. That said, I show my face here too from time to time . There's some good stuff on this forum and enough Brits to make trans-Atlantic co-operation feasible.

                              Sorry Geoff3, but it will take pinned blades now - I think they made an alteration to the blade clamps. However, there is a potential problem with the inferior grub screws used to hold the pinless blades in the clamp. At least that is what I found, but Axminster are sending me new clamps and 'better quality' grub screws, so hopefully this will solve the problem for me.

                                Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                                Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                                Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
