What's in it for the 'Blue Book' compilers?
For one thing, ad revenue. You can bet tool makers will want their ads right there in the middle of folks who are looking to buy.

I'd be very surprised if they don't plan to somehow make a market and generate revenue. By carefully doing online research from other sites, they can automatically pick up the information they publish. They can then be a place to coordinate buying and selling, and take a little off the top. I agree that they deserve to make money, and they don't really have to abuse their site's users, in fact, that would kill the site.

I wonder what the plan is, maybe a post from Jon on their plan? I'm interested.

I told this site's administrators when they told us they needed to make money to keep it going that some woodworking ads along the right border would probably be okay with most of the members. After all, we are always interested in what's out there and how much it costs. Unfortunately, they let Google decide which ads and they are for the most part ones we don't want. If displaying ads is part of his business plan then I hope he takes this lesson to heart and targets the right advertisers. And if he takes your suggestion Tom and supports all woodworking machinery then that opens a very large door.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I didn't see a CNC category that lists my machine, or CNCRP, or any others.

Looks like it is geared toward industry more than the hobbyist. It lacks a lot of the brands that would be geared toward the average backyard shop.

As Steve posted their mission is to help manufacturers and not really geared toward the buyers. Possibly with the intent to point buyers toward the machines their clients manufacture.

Nice. The problem with the auto pricing books is the Dealers have a book in every color you can think of. Most go by the Black Book which, of course, gives you less than the Blue one and most trade values come off of the MSRP (unless they are dumping old model inventory). Many times you are better off giving your "used up" trade in to a charity, earning a tax write off, and get a cash deal on the new one. (my best friend is the used car buyer for a local dealer). Beware when they advertise "invoice pricing". New cars have a "hold back" of $600 to $1000 that the factory pays the dealer, so they have a built in profit margin even if you do get an invoice price.
