The IWF Diary

IWF Freud
Our managing
editor, Rodney Wilson, lately wrote about his expertise of
IWF 2016 (which
you can read here
). So I believed I might let our readers
hear about my expertise. We went to IWF to introduce
ourselves, hand out enterprise playing cards, signal autographs and kiss
infants (OK, we didn’t do these final two). It was a brand new
expertise for me and it was actually surreal to satisfy the boys
and girls who create a few of the instruments that I’ve been
utilizing for therefore lengthy.

We opened the
convention by attending the Freud media occasion. It was a
who’s who of woodworking media, all drooling over Freud’s
developments within the business. My greatest take-away is that
the CNC is right here and it’s right here to remain.

The hassle that the woodworking business is placing into
making the CNC extra reasonably priced and straightforward to make use of for daily
woodworkers is unimaginable. It opens up a complete new world of
woodworking to folks who could have thought they
would by no means be capable to get into it.

Later within the day
we stopped by the SENCO sales space to find out about a few of their
new merchandise. They launched us to a 21-gauge nail gun which
they are saying has holding energy near an 18 gauge however with the
gap dimension nearer to the 23 gauge. I might love to provide one in all
these weapons an actual take a look at and see the way it holds up. That would
have are available actually useful in my previous life constructing kitchen


A side-by-side demonstration of the nail gap sizes.

As Rodney mentioned in his earlier publish, IWF is HUGE. It was my
first time on the occasion, so I had not correctly ready
myself for the overwhelming dimension of the truthful. (I additionally didn’t
put on the right sneakers to stroll across the Georgia World
Congress Middle for a few days…my ft nonetheless damage.) The
expertise was unimaginable and I sit up for going again
and seeing what new innovations the woodworking business can
provide you with.
