Seems fishy to me. Sure would be worth it if it’s real.

Still the same scam. Don’t buy.

Check the address….......and note the “z” in the word woodworkerzjournal. Misspelled words in an address is usually a clear sign of a scam, or worse….........

Have a good day, Joe…..........

James Walker ,a carpenter and a member of North Texas woodworker's Association?
there’s no way of verifying his identity or his membership in NTWA,it sure stinks of a scam.

Just for kicks, I GOOGLED “North Texas Woodworkers Assoc”... got a hit…

Sent the following message to the President of the NTWA!
Maybe he can shed some light on the subject…

Hi President John Loftis, president@ntwa.org of NTWA,

I got this email… posted it on LumberJocks.com forum to get comments…

Main Email Ad in question:

I googled the NTWA and found you… Could you please read the Ad and let me know if the person is legit? Are you familiar with the Product? Good / Bad / Scam?

Thank you very much!

RESPONSE!

Hi there, it absolutely is NOT legit. They’ve been running different versions of this ad (the one I normally see is Ted something or other). They have no affiliation with us, they aren’t members of our organization, and they don’t respond to e-mail contacts.

So….

I certainly can’t vouch for what they are selling. It is quite fishy.

Best,

John

Joe,now that we know it’s a scam ,I wonder how many new WW hobbyist are going to post that ad and ask if it’s worth it or not.
If we could have stickies,this thread would have been a good candidate.

Maybe a separate category of Scams would work and being able to Search only the Category??

Speaking of Searches… Sometimes, I wish I could search MY Favorites (Not the whole forum) for items of interest.

I got a spam email just like that today. My immediate thought was Ted The WW Plan Pirate. My next thought was, this is the same thing by another name.
