Hi. Dustin Barbee here. I believe in transparency on the web and so I am disclosing that I’ve included certain products and links to those products on this site that I will earn an affiliate commission for any purchases you make. My goal with this blog is to help pen turners, but please understand I am also hoping to earn some $ at the same time. With that being said, a lot of my links are these “affiliate links” and they may lead you to products or services and, in turn, I may receive compensation from someone. Having said that, there are millions of products and services on the web that relate to pen turning. I only promote those products or services that I have investigated and truly feel deliver value to you. Examples would include any and all products on my page, Tools of the Trade, which is a list of tools I personally use in the shop to make my pens and tools I highly recommend.
Pen Turning Help is a participant in the Amazon Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com, as well as Rockler’s Affiliation Program. When you click on my links or a picture in my posts, sometimes they will either take you to Rockler.com or Amazon.com and if you make a purchase, and at no additional cost to you, I will get a commission.
Please note that I have not been given any free products, services or anything else by these companies in exchange for mentioning them on the site. The only consideration is in the form of affiliate commissions. In addition, if you feel like I have helped you in any way, I have created a link where you can easily make a donation through PayPal. Furthermore, another way you can say “Thank you!” is if you use this Amazon link when you do your Amazon shopping. It will take you straight to Amazon and you can just shop like you normally would, but since you are using my link, I will receive a tiny commission.
