Thread: August issue Woodworker
14/07/2008 14:28:00

It's only fair given that I had some pretty negative feedback for last months edition that I say what I feel about  this months:

 Last month's went into the "read" pile after a day, I'm still reading this months!

I too miss the readers gallery, but I thought that generally the new look was good, the quality of the articles was excellent, and the projects all looked good and interesting.

As a hobbyist (even one who owns a Tormek) I was especially interested in the saturday projects. 

Well done Ralph, Ben and all the contributors. 

Thanks

Thread: July Edition of "The Woodworker"

The thing is, if magazines like the Woodworker don`t cover these new machines, cheap & expensive alike, then we don`t know whats out in the market place & how good they are.

The readership of the WW is wide & varied & so is their expenditure on tools, so without these reviews we would be buying in the dark.

I personally really like the tool review section, more power to your elbow Ben.

Cheers Ben.

Baz,

 I agree 100%, I subscribe to this and several other magazines, and tool reviews is one of the reasons.

Thanks for the swift reply Ben, I do want to make it clear that it was just the News and Test section I was commenting on, elsewhere the Magazine was fine, as a wood turner, I am especially pleased you haven't just allowed this section of the magazine to fade away.

I do understand your points and should the budget become availabel I'd love to give both tools a go - and I will make sure you get my feedback

I really don't have a problem with the reviews being complimentary, and of course you shouldn't make negative comments where there is no justification. Maybe I read them as "gushing" because my impressions about the number of pages given over to both manufacturers.

I got July's copy the other day and I have to say the news and test sections just felt like reading a bunch of adverts

With a full spread from Bosch (followed by the Bosch GTM12 review in test) , and a visit to Festool (followed by the OF2200 review) there seems a lot of manufacturer specific news, then the reviews were very complimentary, almost gushing, it made for slightly uncomfortable reading.

I like magazines, as I don't get as much time as I would like (do any of us?) in the workshop due to other commitments (such as a 2 hour commute), magazines give me a sort of vicarious pleasure. And I know that you have to look after the advertisers, but maybe to make this feel a little less conspicuous youcould have spread the articles over 2 months?

Thanks
