    I've made room in my shed waiting for the mask, and creating room in the fridge will be a pleasure

    Hmm let's see... $1 million dollar earnings from website...
    Yep, Only about $998,000 to go

    I have hoenstly made some money off my website over the 3 years its been running. Enough to buy a new DSLR and a good lens (of which now takes the photos for the recent reviews you now see). Aside from that, there is not much else

    Given a conservative estimate of 2,000 words per article (some are 5000!) and about 90 reviews total = 180,000 words... that's about $0.0111 per word earnings, and then the tax man takes his share

    As you can see, I do it as a hobby more than anything else
    Now, if I was actually selling tools myself, this may be a totally different story

    The AWR articles are pretty much independant of the website. No links there. Heck, I havent even got a orange helmet of my own yet. 2 kids to feed and a wife with expensive taste

    Dean, I've read most of your reviews, and the website on a regular basis. I've also read some of the quite unfair comments made to you at times - even in this forum. I think you do a pretty good and balanced job, I hope you stick to it.

    (edit) I just had one of those random thoughts run through my head. It would be nice to have a reviewer such as yourself at the Woodworking shows explaining to people what to look for in tools - how to identify quality etc. 10 mins on a particular type routers/drills/TSs/BSs etc.

    Cheers.

    As long as readers find it worthwhile, I will continue on, or at least until my brain's reserve of written text runs out

    Unfortunatly if you sold tools your reviews would probably lose credability. If you get stats on click throughs to the sellers you could build a case for commission as if you haven't thought of these things

    Dave, yes that is indeed the case. Gotta remain neutral as much as possible with reviews.
