I was following the previous thread about a machinery give away http://lumberjocks.com/topics/57814. Is the $1500 Baileigh bucks in lieu of an actual machine as multiple posts have now more than suggested? What percentage of the machines listed in this new thread will $1500 get me towards having the machine at my front door?

Because Shane…making it such an open format…that leaves us inexperienced, unequipped, woodworker wannabes way, way, way behind the curve. What you’ll have are folks with all the machines, skills, and wood that they can ever need competing and people like me that has none of those in the dirt. But whatever. I’ll watch from afar and see what everyone else comes up with. I’m sure it’ll be interesting.

Aaron @ Baileigh…I don’t agree. You’ll have folks with a lot of experience and tools worth more than my house competing against someone like me that has a table saw and chisel set and zero experience…I’m pretty sure those odds aren’t in my favor. But like I said, that’s fine. I’ll just watch. Maybe I’ll get some ideas for future projects or something.

This sounds fine to me, I like the challenge. I’m not a novice or an expert.

It will give a novice a good chance to hone their skills. Its not like they don’t have enough info from this page to get the skills he needs.

Rather than sitting around whining about the unfairness of life use this contest as motivation to practice your skills. Maybe you won’t win the contest but you’ll have improved yourself then next time a contest rolls around you’ll be better prepared. It isn’t the tools that make the project it’s the little grey cells.

The secret to getting ahead is getting started. Most everyone that enters this contest will not win but we enter anyway.

Frankly, this whole contest thing has left a bad taste in my mouth by promoting bad feelings among some LJ members and bringing greed out in others. I’m less likely to buy a Baileigh tool now than I otherwise would have been. This had potential to help those in need, both inside and outside the woodworking community, but it’s not gone in that direction. In my mind, it projects an impression of immaturity and lack of vision by those at Baileigh. You may disagree with me, and that’s fine, I don’t care. I wonder what all the losing contestants will do with their Baileigh signs?

Dang… rough crowd. Nobody is being forced to enter. Rather than plastering gigantic banner ads all over the website, I rather appreciate Baileigh’s approach to building their brand, at least it gives you an opportunity to get something out of it. If you don’t like it, just ignore the threads instead of dumping in it about how the contest isn’t fair just because it isn’t structured in a way to help you specifically.

Honestly, this kind of project isn’t really up my alley, but the lure of winning something at least has me thinking of ideas. Dunno if that will actually translate into anything, but hey, getting to daydream about wood was worth the price of admission!

Joe Lyddon Remember you are trying to impress the Baileigh woodworking team. Not sure new logos would do that. If it were me and I wanted to win, I would probably stick with our current logo or something close to it.

The last contest we actually purchased several of the “Baileigh Boxes” that were made for the contest for our showroom.

I think offering 1500 buck towards one of their products is huge and very generous.

And for Charles N. Completely out of line. Geeze, IT’S A CONTEST

Kevin , WE are all entitled to our opinions .. Its not a damn contest, it eliminates the new and those with less experience. It has to address all skill levels, this doesn’t . Just saying. I been at this for 40 + years .. and I can hand carve a logo, do an air brushed one, do ghost flames as accents, can you. Thats my point .. It has to be something that gives every one a chance,,, Hang tight .. Folks .. Watch for a new contest,,, more to the point.

As to Joe,I will apologize, but I have a real issue with folks who disrespect our seniors and mentors . Joe is my friend, he does however enjoy chastising me from time to time .. All I say is “yes sir ” , he deserves the respect .

Now if ya want to comprehend the concept .. lets do a challenge build …just you and I , what ever you want .. Ill be there.

Perhaps I’m typing in invisible pixels?
Twice now I’ve asked what seems to me like a reasonable question…

I’ll ask – do you have 220/230V models suitable for Europe?

Is there a particular reason you can’t be bothered to answer with a simple “no” or “yes”?

Since you shouted in your last post, I’ll shout it once more..

... since they are worldwide, they probably do have 220/230… would be a good bet.

Thank you Charles. You have explained this situation very clearly as to why this thing upsets me so much. Truly, I have been a bit slow on this one, yet upset nevertheless. Something about getting older puts things into perspective. FYI, even though Joe is the only one to ever block me “twice” on LJs, we are currently understanding each other and have open communication. Something for others to consider as well… ;-)

I thank Baileigh for supporting this site in a nonintrusive way. Any contest not involving shear luck will be met with criticism. I see very few other woodworking equipment manufacturers offer giveaway contests unless your willing to let them clog your email inbox with promotion emails. Like others have said if you don’t like the terms of the contest, move on to other projects.
By the way, I do have a cnc and would be willing to carve Baileigh logo’s (for a fee plus shipping) that you could pin nail to your project and easily remove after the photo shoot. PM me if interested for a quote. Like my kids text me, LOL!
edited. If I can make a suggestion to Baliegh, I would start a new thread for entries so you can start fresh and LJ’s don’t have to page through all of the above.

Have your say...
