Is anyone here a member and is it worth paying the membership fee?

I joined (for $8 IIRC) but don't find it worth much.  Most of the content seems pretty basic.  I haven't tried any of their plans.

No other connection, your mileage may vary, etc.

I joined last year when it was only $9.99 and watch some videos.  I agree with Phred that it is pretty basic.

Barely worth the $9.00/yr on special, and most "tips" could probably be found pretty much duplicated by others on YouTube. The plans are probably worth the expense...if you can use them.

Probably would not renew after my year is up.

Cheers,

Well, I have one good thing to say about WGA.   Those crappy plastic drill indexes they send out with promo mailings make pretty good featherboards.

I joined also for 9.99 and watched some of the videos.  I agree with everyone else...basic info, but I also pick up a tip or two from them.  Probably won't re-up when year is over, but not a waste of money.

Shouldn't a guild be about keeping respect for the industry, to avoid bullshit like this?
