No because I am not eligible to win.
Yes. And I actively look for new contests.
Yes. But only when I see one, or hear about one from others.
No. I don't have time for this nonsense.
No. And I don't like taking polls either.
Yes I read the rules.
No, I don't ever read rules. Don't read owner's manuals either.
Rules??? These things have rules???
I am like Glenn. I am very careful about putting my info on the web. If nothing else I don't need all of the junk it can elicit.
Just think of the extremely poor odds of winning. What is your time worth?
First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
It's really funny how many E-mails I received at an address spamdeleted@(domain).com
I haven't entered a contest in quite a while since I have no shop. Besides that I pretty well have most of the tools I need well almost.
I really like the sawstop & would accept one if I won it but I am not looking to purchase one. Push sticks & grippers are good safety devices. I prefer grippers & push pads that hook on to the back edge & extend up over the item being cut. With push sticks that just hook on the back edge I always fear the material being flung up & away from the back edge of the blade even with a splitter.

In this case, they get your name, your IP address, your physical address, your preferences, even what kind of computer you're using. It all goes into the demographics, and by the time they're done, these companies know more about us than we know about ourselves. Do you really think they'd offer prizes worth an entire shop just to build an email address list?
Read the rules again, but this time, look for what they do with the data. The honest ones will say something like "we do share data, so we can better serve you." The less honest ones won't even mention what they do. The correct translation of "All entries become property of XYZ company" is "We don't give a darn what you think..."
Ummmm, 10 month old thread guys...
... and I still haven't won that Sawstop!
There's usually more than one way to do it...www.wordsnwood.com
I do believe we have a poll with no end date here!!!!!!!!
If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.
Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
Poll is closed. Feel free to still comment though....
