Hello and thank you for being a part of this site! I created this forum 10 years ago when I realized there was no place on the web that had all the information I was looking for to learn more about crosscut saws. It started because I wanted to be able to ask people if they recognized a saw I had which didn't have a logo, and it has become the go to place to share and learn from some of the most knowledgeable people in the crosscut saw world. Thank you for being a part of this community!

At first, I covered the cost of hosting the site out of my own pocket. Every 3 years the service subscription comes up for renewal, and around that time I usually do a small fund raiser to cover the cost of the service. I use a few other forums on the web and I notice that they all have ads and other ways of raising money, but that is not the way I want to run this site. Rather than trying to raise money every few years, I would like to have a way for members to show their support through very small, recurring donations that would cover the hosting and site support fees, so I started a Patreon site for - check out the link below!

If 50 people signed up to the Patreon and subscribed for $0.50 a month, that should cover the site for the foreseeable future. One of our members signed up for $2 a month, and that's huge. Also, the Patreon site displays how much the site receives each month, so it is totally transparent and you know that I'm not secretly planning my getaway to the Cayman islands. Check it out and consider becoming a patron, and let me know if there is anything that would make this site better, too. Thank you and stay safe out there!
