I sure would like to win a Hammer table saw. I’ll bet that some of you would too.

So how do I sign up?

I clicked on the ad and it took me to their web site. Then there was another banner on their site about getting more info about the contest so I clicked on it. It lead to an error page. I backed out of that and went back to the home page I guess. I didn’t look exhaustively but I didn’t see anything about the contest.

I guess their webmaster must have messed it up but I would like to sign up.

Did anyone have this same problem? I was just wondering. Since this is about winning a table saw I guess it’s a valid subject.

I’m not mad at Hammer or anything. I left a message on their contact page so hopefully they can correct this.

I’m fixing to try it one more time.

Oh well. :-(

It’s simple. If you buy one of their saws, they’ll tell you how to enter the contest. :-)

Honestly, I haven’t checked this one out, but sometimes those contests are a royal pain to enter.

Charlie, I just tried it again and this is what I got on the error page:

The specified URL cannot be found.

Oh well what a bummer. Well I don’t think I’m going to buy a saw to win a saw so I’ll just forget it. If they answer my message on their contact page I’ll let you know. Take care, Charlie my friend.

I registered a while back and do not remember anything special about the process…

Well, Wayne, I’ve tried it 4 times and it leads me to an error page. My Firefox browser is usually pretty reliable. Maybe there’s some kind of browser comparability problem or maybe their webmaster made some sort of mistake when he did a recent update or something. It’s no big deal really. Just wondering.

Just tried the link myself and got the same 404 error page as you did in both FireFox and IE.

I made a hammer once. Perhaps I should win on technicality. Hammer’s such a different breed that I’d almost have to win one to own one.

Wayne, I do a lot of tinkering with web sites and Firefox is one of the most favorite browsers for people who fool around with building web sites. IE gives web site builders fits because they don’t respect all of the new web standards so when you are building a site with XHTML and CSS, for example, you always have to do a lot of extra work for the site to look right in IE. The newer IE browsers are getting better but it’s still a problem. Firefox also has a lot of special tools built into it or add ons to help people build web sites. These are some of the reasons that I use Firefox. I’ve been using it for about 6 years.

I agree with your issues related to IE. I use Firefox on my home desktop and sometimes I play around with Chrome as well…

Bertha, if I was to win it, and if I didn’t like it I guess I could always use it for a fancy work table or just sell it to somebody else. Although, I will say, except for when I use to play poker every week, I don’t ever win anything. My wife did once win a car, however. :)

I haven’t tried chrome yet. Actually, playing around with web sites has been put on the back burner for about a year now. However, I do have to get back on it because I’ve got a lot of time invested in web site technology and it’s just like anything else – if you don’t use it you lose it.

I even went to the manufacturers website and tried entering directly from the link there, both in Chrome and IE. It’s a no-go for sure.

cr1, did you get to the site or to the page where you sign up to win the saw? I can get to the site but just can’t get to where you sign up for the saw.

You know what? I’m feeling pretty lucky. I just might win that saw if I can ever figure out how to register for it.

I got an email from them that I used to sign up for the contest…it was advertising the AWFS in Las Vegas which they are attending (I am also trying to find a way to be able to attend). I looked for the email for the link but must have deleted it….perhaps the AWFS show page might have a link….if not, I believe there is an email contact address at both sites – they have great customer service which would probably get you signed up in a jiffy?

I usually do not win anything….but someday that streak may break….if not I guess I could fall back on all those Euros I keep winning in my spam folders – at the rate I get those I must have won at least a couple countries by now?

Update: I just tried to sign up for this contest at home – different computer, etc. – no dice!
