Popular Woodworking Tool Giveaway


Recommended Posts

I know we all enter the monthly Wood Whisperer giveaway and probably Festool's monthly tool giveaway. I got an email from Popular Woodworking to enter to win a shops worth of Jet, Bessey and Woodpecker stuff. So it never hurts to enter, even though I have a better chance of cutting down a tree and it magically turning into dimensional lumber. Figured I'd pass on the chances to you guys as well. 

 

In no way am I associated with Popular Woodworking or anything like that. Just another hobbyist sharing with his hobbyist friends.

Good luck! Hope one of the forum guys here wins. =)

If you win that you could end up in a high tax bracket... although I guess what you would pay in taxes is cheaper then the tools them selves. Might as well give it a try.

donate your old stuff to a school wood shop, tax write off to offset.

I don't think it'd move me in a tax bracket. It's probably about a $3000 tax. Damn government not allowing people to have nice things given to them without them having to take their cut.

Since PWW has basically died a certain kind of death with the departure of their core contributors, you can call it an inheritance...they can't tax you unless it's over a million dollars.

 

I have a better chance of landing a date with Giada in her porno kitchen than winning any drawing.

 

But if anyone else here wins, I get the Woodpeck's saw gauge and coping sled.  I'll PM you my address.  Thanks.

I'm sure the gift wouldn't move many people up or down. I'm just saying, I love my CPA

I know what everyone is thinking here, that one of you guys who already has a shop full of tools is going to win this.  Speaking as the guy with not much more than a table saw, a ROS, and a hundred year old union #3, all I have to say is, when that happens remember us little people ;)
