  • Greetings!

    Hi everyone. I just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. I did this on the carving section too, and I'm not quite sure what kind of overlap there is, but better safe than sorry...

    My name is Bob Duncan and I'm the new editorial guy at Fox Chapel. I'm working primarily for Wood Carving Illustrated, because I have wood carving experience, but I am also contributing to SSW (which I'm getting a crash course in).

    I've been woodworking as long as I can remeber, owing to a mispent youth in my father's woodshop.

    In addition to contributing to the magazines, my job is also to cruise the message boards, including this one, to get a general feel for what people are interested in, or working on. I also get to offer suggestions, refer people to out books or magazines, and handle complaints. So, if you have anything to say, just let me have it!!

    Anyway, you'll be seeing my name on the board a lot...because I love to write, and if you need anything, I'm just a click away!

      Being in a woodshop in your youth is a lot better than spending too much time out behind the woodshed!

        Hello Bob! I don't get on here as much as I like to, seems there's a thing called a job I have to attend to every day, in fact I'm at lunch now, but would like to make a suggestion. I got your new magazine on Saturday and as always, couldn't wait to get some of the projects done. Coming in your NEXT issue - christmas projects! Now don't get me wrong, Christmas is my favorite time of the year and most of my scrolsawing is 70% ornaments and christmas projects, BUT the problem is: It's already September 13 and your Christmas projects won't be out for another TWO MONTHS! Couldn't we have Christmas in July or something so we get a chance to get the latest projects in our shows this year and not next? I am already into my shows and have limited time for sawing now, which means most of your new ideas will have to wait until next year. I have this complaint with ALL magazines and catalogs. It is my feeling these patterns should be out by July so we can them into the shows for this year. But that is just my personal feeling. Well, keep up the good work, love your magazine just would like to see Christmas items sooner.

          Betty,
          Thanks for your comments. What you are saying does make sense. I'll bring these issues up at our next editorial meeting.

              I love the Stick figures. Have made some and they are easy and cute.

              Welcome to the Forum from NC. I have a WEN but haven't had any problems other than the blower and the blade clamps. I'm not real familiar with the mechanics of the saw but it sounds like something broke inside. As far as cutting straight, I feel that has to deal with the blades you are using or the...

              Welcome to the forum from Tennessee. I too have no experience with the Wen. I suggest you contact the business you bought it from. As a Pegas dealer, I would like to know these things and possibly help.

              Welcome to the forum. Sorry but I have no experience with the Wen brand. Did you check you-tube?
