Hi, Does the site accpet donations of any kind? I would be interested to know. I know they do not charge for the use of the site but maybe they would use the donations in a charitable way or for something that would benefit electricians?
I get a lot of great information from the site and would like to give something back.
I think one way to help benefit the site would be to purshase tools and books through the links to the left. I think I'll buy a couple of laser plumb bobs for the trucks right now. Thanks for the site Bill.

Personally, I agree with Bill, I would not like to see this site to go down that particular road. The Electrical Contractor Network website, as far as I know is funded through the purchase of various media from the left side border. (I could also be wrong) But, what we have here at EC Net, is a totally impartial, member-orientated site, I would like to say that it should be kept that way, I would not like to see a corporate bent on this site and to a certain extent, niether would you guys. This site has run for 4 years and it is picking up new members all the time. This site is a credit to Bill Addiss for keeping things in check without the inherent sponsor-ship problems, no Pop-up ads. At a real site like this, there should be no money changing hands. That's just my take on the situation.

I wish I could donate something too but at least I feel a bit better now since I purchased two books through the Webstore- American Electricians' Handbook (it's a great read for me but where do you get those porcelain cleats nowadays???) and Soares' Book On Grounding (what an outstanding book on the subject!!!).
Yes, I'm a surveyor, not an electrician, but I do thoroughly enjoy studying the subject. I cannot possibly say how much I have benefitted from this website.
No wire bias here- I'm standing on neutral ground.
