Tony, do a little more investigating any magazine these days especially ones that ask for credit cards. Magazine subscriptions is probably one of the most picked off forms of credit card fraud. I do not say this is not legit but the too good to be true thing may apply. I use to get that magazine and gave them all up. They become so redundant and all they are is ads. They all do tool reviews and whoever sponsors the magazine that is the tool the reviews lean toward. Plenty of woodworking forums around.
