    What other woodworking magazines do you subscribe to besides our beloved SSWC? I've seen some good magazines on the newsrack such as WOOD but I am hesitant to subscribe to any even with some of the great deals being offered. Do you feel some are more worthwhile than others?

    While on the topic, let me just say that I think the publications being put out by Fox Chapel are absolutely top notch. Not just the magazine but the books available also. I think they go out of their way to find the best patterns and projects they possibly can. I can't say enough about the quality of the product. Simply wonderful. Thanks Shannon, Mindy, Bob, and everyone else at HQ.

    I find myself subscribing to magazines for 1 year then dropping them if they don't offer me anything I want. Nothing compares to SSWC.

      If you're not sure, go to the newsstand and buy a copy before subscribing.

      If you do subscribe, make sure you deal with the publisher themselves or a reputable subscription company. Some of the discount subscription companies have had a lot of complaints filed against them. The potential aggravation isn't worth the few dollars saved.

      I agree, SSWC is one of the best. (Now if the next issue will just get here! )

        The one other magazine that I've subscribed to for years and IMO is by far the best general woodworking magazine is Woodsmith. None of the fluff of most other mags and no adds whatsoever.

          A lot of it depends on your interests. If your not building cabinetry, why subscribe to a pub that is dominated by that type of work.

          Another way to look at it, if you drive a Ford--would you subscribe to a Chevy magazine?

          Too early to leave, too late to call in.

              Here's another scrollsaw mag.
              Seems pretty good.

              We don't advertise other magazines on this forum thanks for your understanding. I removed your link.

                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...

                Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
