    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.

                The original pattern was 7 1/2 x 13 1/4.. The book has no mention of resizing on all but one page. My guess the magazine and the book side of fox has no one who scrolls.. the last books have shown that. enlarged I had to use a #1 blade for many cuts. If I had just copied the pattern in its silver...

                I think he is talking about the size of the patterns lately and extra steps needed to copy and resize them. It took me an hour to copy the fish from the latest issue with all the folding, cutting to match, tape, repeat. If it had been letter or legal size, I could have copied and resize with less hassle....

                IDK? I remember that Ben sold Pegas blades, but the label on this package just says "Ben's Blades, Ultra Thin Puzzle Blade". When Denny started selling Pegas blades I asked him and he told me Pegas doesn't sell a specific "puzzle" blade. The 2/0 might be their answer....
