    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.

                It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.

                Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

                As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...
