At TheEdgeCutter, our goal is to help readers to get out and find their next adventures in terms of woodworking and power tools.
Many of our articles, especially gear-based articles, we may earn a small commission when readers purchase products through our links which are mostly Amazon affiliate links.
This doesn’t affect which products are included in the articles, and in most cases our writers are not aware of which brands and products offer us a sales commission. All of the products we highlight are recommended for their quality, performance and overall reputation regardless of any affiliate relationships.
We strive to recommend the products that would fit best for most audiences, and usually categorize our top picks as:
- Editor’s Choice: the best overall pick based on performance and feedback
- Ultimate pick: where it makes sense to spend more money
- Best value: gear that offers the most bang for the buck
The commissions we make from these articles allow us to pay our writers the best rates possible, and to allow us to put as much time and energy into the research and vetting side of the review process. We don’t want to cut corners, and we want to pay writers and gear testers what they’re worth.
If we receive gear to review directly from brands, it’s noted in the review itself, though most of the gear we field test is purchased. Any brands or products that pay for promotion or advertising on the site are considered “Sponsored.”
