I realize that we have a lot of visitors who come to the forum and take advantage of the great wealth of information available here.  Now is a great time to sign up for an account and officially start participating in the discussions.  Why you might ask?  Well, sign up for a forum account during the month of August 2010, make a few posts and automatically be entered in a random drawing to win one of two free subscriptions to Fine Homebuilding or Fine Woodworking magazine!

A great way to make your first post is to introduce yourself over in our Member Connections section of the forum.  Come on in, everyone is welcome and we have a very friendly and inviting group of members here.  [big grin]


Contest Rules

  • This sweepstakes is only available to members who create a new forum account between 8/1/2010 and 8/31/2010.
  • New members must contribute at least three substantive posts during the sweepstakes period to be eligible.
  • The contest is open to new members of the forum in the United States and Canada only who are at least 18 years of age, except where prohibited by law.
  • Festool employees, dealers and affiliates, and FOG moderators are not eligible to participate.
  • Please remember it's against forum rules to have more than one account so please do not create a new account if you already have one.

Prizes

  • We will randomly select two winners who will have their choice of a one-year subscription to Fine Homebuilding or Fine Woodworking magazine. Edit: Each winner will also receive a limited edition Festool beer stein.

Winners will be randomly selected from the list of entries that adhere to the contest rules above. Winners will be announced on or before September 5th, 2010.

Yikes - I've been outed [scared]!

So not only did I have to graduate from being a lurker...which I'd done prior to this thread's start....but also to being a member who has to create substantive posts - of which I deem this one NOT...[eek]

Holy Nakashima, what's a poor wood butcher to do ???

Anyway, instead of two winners a choice of one year of either FW or FH....howzabout one winner two years of both!  I like that much better, at least if I were to win it...... ;D

I promise something more substantive down the road......

AR, welcome to the forum. You drive a tough bargain. How about I throw in a free limited edition Festool beer stein to each of the winners to sweeten the pot?

Also, special thanks to our friends at Taunton for donating the magazine subscriptions and for their collaborative effort on promoting our $10,000 Ultimate System Sweepstakes earlier this year.  Visit http://www.taunton.com to learning more about the "fine" publications offered by them.

Shane hasn't had an opportunity to update this list - he has been working on some REALLY cool secret stuff.

The end of the month is quickly approaching.  If you are a new member in North America - don't forget to make three posts in accordance with the rules by the end of the month to be entered into the contest for a free subscription.  If you are a visitor - sign up now.  The rules are at the top of this thread!

For those who haven't seen or read either Fine Homebuilding or Fine Homebuilding magazines - they are top notch!  I have a collection going back to around 1986 and I use them for reference all the time.

Well worth the wear on your fingertips for a chance to get a years worth!

Congratulations to the winners.  In regards to the beer stein, I just received one for another FOG contest, and it is very nice.  Just note that there is a little glue on sticker on the inside of the soft aluminum flip lid.  Don't use a scouring pad to try to remove, as it will scratch the finish.  Get something like Citrus Solve to remove it with an abrasive free cloth/towel.

It might actually be a good thing to include this kind of instruction with the mugs Shane.  I scratched mine notrealizing how soft the metal was, but luckily noticed it quickly before it became major. [sad]

Wow! Holy smokes.

Boy-o-boy, this ranks right up there with that time I won the Powerball.  You know, what enabled me to start drinking the green Kool-aid....or rather, to start being able to afford to....[unsure]

Thank you, everybody.   Now, do Slyder and I have to arm-wrestle ourselves to determine which of us gets FH and which FWW?  I have a slight preference for FWW...... (I subscribed from Vol. 1 through about 120, but have let it lapse for the last decade....)

THANKS AGAIN!
