My copy arived today,

I havnt had time to read too much yet but you have got to see the wooden car on page 12 it's amazing.

From what i have seen the rest of the mag looks good to, will add to the thread later after i have read more.

I certainly found the sections on 'Understand' wood screws interesting (page 40), someone must of listened to me some time back

Yes Marc

Goes quite well with the screew guide in the recent Good Wood. all i need now is a drill sizing guide ( If you are thinking in the future GW )

All in all not a bad read i think, the turning section is a bit thin, it seems to aim too high on the skill required or functional needs in turning,  i often wonder if they should do more aimed at the beginner and weekend turners, what do you think  ?

I have just read the section on "Budget Priced" Cordless Jigsaws.

A very impressive read and some very serious kit worth every penny, Just one thing though, i bought a set of cordless tools last year, it consisted of a drill, jigsaw, Detail Sander, a Torch, 2 Batteries and a charger.

The Torch & sander were stuck in the back of the shed and have stayed there the drill is used almost daily and the jigsaw is great for odd jobs, go to buy sheet material and cut to fit the car, or rip to fit the shed its brilliant.

And the next question, What did it cost ?................. Full price £40 Yes that is right £40, however i bought it in the sale just after Christmas and i paid £10, for the set from Wilkinsons

So it is well worth looking around if you only want it for odd jobs, if it is to be more proffessionally used you would probably be better paying a bit more.

On checking at W H Smith's today I saw that the latest issue of GW had some foam brushes included as a free gift.

Why did subscribers miss out on the freebies, or was I the only one?

Whilst it is nice to get freebies, you are not realy missing anything.

Mind you they would probably be good for applying the stain to your lattest project, you can have mine if you want ?

The freebies are there to tempt you to buy, as you`ve already taken out a subscription they don`t need to tempt you.

Lifes a black gooey adhesive or is that a bitch?

I agree with the comments about the brushes 'not being much use' and 'there to tempt you to buy' but only recently, on this forum, someone was asking for useful freebies such as 'screw size guides'

One rule for one.

 I need to be tempted to renew my subscription when it becomes due.  The value/use of the freebie to any individual is immaterial.

Can I remind everyone that this thread concerns The Woodworker. I don't think it's the appropriate place to post any gripes about Good Woodworking.

Cheers,
Ben

I suppose it must work on the idea "its the thought that counts"

Mind you i did get a nice set of chisels with the subscription for The Woodworker, and i will probably take out the subscription for Good Wood when they offer something else i want ?

I thought a freebie was something you threw for your dog to catch!

 As with all things today, nothing for loyalty, if there was a voucher in each months mag and you could claim a useful gadget if you saved all twelve , it might be an incentive to  take the mag fo the twelve months on subscription.

Ben says this is the wrong place  to gripe about another mag, but aren't they both out of the same stable?
