It has been a while since I visited the store or the Maslow Home site. I mostly just read the forums and keep up to date. I didn’t realize that I had my ad blocker turned on and was missing relevant ads. Oh wait. I don’t see any ads because there just aren’t any.
Why not offer up ads to sites that are relevant? Maybe offer low to no cost ones for the sites that do offer Maslow specific parts, kits, accessories. That would let MakerMade, MetalMaslow, and East Bay have links to their full catalog without adding more entries to the garden. At the same time, other sites could advertise. We all need router bits. Those aren’t Maslow specific. And, reputable dealers would be happy to get their wares in front of more eyeballs for a small price.
I don’t know who would be a good gatekeeper, though. The Google wouldn’t vet the advertisers as well as the community here could do.
