Topic tags/keywords: scam teds woodworking maxs woodworking

I was looking on Youtube for a suitable clip about squaring a board, when I stumbled upon this website claiming to have the best instruction for squaring a board.

Sure looks alot like TEDs website that I posted about a few years ago.

Be careful, I know this to be a scam from my own experience. Always double check the validity of a website through a third party before you buy into it….

Happy New Year to everyone, hope you finish all the projects that you hope too this year.

They are the most unethical group out there. Can’t say enough bad about them.

A and B, Therefore C. If A, Therefore C.

A = Ted’s Woodworking Sucks

B = Ted’s Woodworking is the same as Max’s Woodworking

C = Therefore by Modus Ponens we can infer that Max’s Woodworking sucks.

They even called themselves “prix” in their own website. I think that tells all you need to know.

I’ve read a lot here about this outfit to know to stay as far away from them as I can.

Funny. Ted & Max: the biggest prix in woodworking.

By the way, here’s the real Max, i.e., a stock photo.

Ted goes by many names… dozens of them. The giveaway is always the “16,000” free plans (sometimes a hair more, sometimes a hair less BTW).

Thanks for the heads up Tooch…
If I accidently click on his link I get upset at myself for a moment while biting my lip. But I’m learning fast… this guy is a creep and what Monty said.
Happy New Year!

I’ve seen the same spiel under diff names on facebook even. Change the name and the stock picture but contents almost identical…..I chuckle and go on by.

Yeah in fine print it says the plans are in Egyptian Cubits. So you need to convert to Imperial or Metric. Please allow for error in conversion.
