      I went to the AGPI convention in Denver. Fun, fun, fun. And interesting tours. All puzzlers should consider joining the AGPI @ $40/yr!

          The next Association of Games and Puzzles International (AGPI) will be APR/MAY 2020 in the Washington, DC area. The next Puzzle Parley will be in Sturbridge, MA July 24-26, 2020.

          Puzzle Parleys are where jigsaw puzzle collectors, cutters and just plain enthusiasts get together for one weekend. Founded in 1994, by Pagey Elliott and Bob Armstrong, one is usually held every two years.

            I would recommend NOT joining at the platinum level for $40 per year and instead, Join for the $20 per year.

            My reasons are as follows (I've posted this on their woefully neglected forum that is advertised as part of the perks of platinum membership, without any reply)

            THE FOLLOWING WAS POSTED ON THE AGPI FORUM:


            ********** START **********
            No Newsletter since May/June of 2018. Other Non-addressed issues

            aside from my previous post(s) which have not been answered:
            "Still unable to create topic in Games, Jigsaw or Mechanical section of forum(s)"

            I would like to know why there has been no newsletter since May June 2018 ?

            I signed up for the Platinum Membership, which included the magazine, access to the forum and the Newsletter

            1. The forum is pretty much DOA in my opinion. I see that the "webmaster" has been online lately, so he must know the problems I addressed. What an avoidable shame this is.

            2. We haven't seen a new newsletter online since May/June 2018

            3. I have rec'd a couple magazines and they are great, but I don't need the print copy if I can save the extra money by accessing them online.

            I did get an email from one of the senior members explaining that the AGPI is a volunteer organization and that was the reason for the issues above.

            Que sera. I explained that you really shouldn't advertise services that can't be delivered, but ... as expected, it fell on deaf/uncaring ears, at least here on the forum and all emails from TPTB ceased.

            sorry if I seem harsh, but if I ran my business or volunteer social club by ignoring what started out to be simple suggestions that have become issues resulting in lost members or customers, I would be out of business.

            I sincerely hope you get it straightened out and let anyone joining the AGPI know that all of the features advertised may not be available at this time.

            ********** END **********


            So, I am sorry to be posting this here, but not one person has even replied at AGPI, not even to welcome "bbofpp", aka Brian, who originated the post on their welcome mat at the AGPI forum.

            Apologize to have hijacked your thread here Brian, but I feel people should be aware that what they are paying for in the Platinum membership that is advertised on the AGPI website and in the magazine, is not what they will receive.

            IMO, Better to just get the $20 membership so you can read the mag online.

              I have used it on a few projects and it worked on some, not so good on others.
              What I found was the yellow on BB plywood is too light in pigment--even with two coats full strength. Had to scrap some pieces and pick another color. The red, blue, green, orange did great. I should say the dyes mix...

              by Rolf
              Along with what Tango said. The earlier saws did not top feed,not exactly sure when the change happened. I personally would not buy a Hawk that has the lower barrel style clamp. I would look for a saw 2005 or newer. That has the new clamps Variable speed, top and bottom feed.
              If you can get...

              Thanks for the info, Rolf. Sounds like the Corian was the culprit. Interesting.

              by cwmagee
              I have a Wacom tablet for several years, I too find it frustrating to use. I have never been able to get comfortable with the eye hand coordination that a tablet requires. I find the mouse far more convenient. I know that there those swear by it, I swear at it.

              I have tried really hard with Inkscape and Paint. Dabbled in a few others. Mostly I find it to be a glorified mouse that I have to be overly carefuly to keep my hand off of the surface while using. True graphite and paper artists don't allow their hand to brush the paper because the graphite would...
