Reach your audience for less than the price of a coffee per day! We have advertising spots available on and other specialized (read: targeted audience) websites for as low as $30/month. These are real banners that run across the entire website, not just some text link on a few pages or on a page of advertisers.

You'll have real-time access to how your ads are doing; see page views and click-throughs.

You can get started immediately. Just email advertise at fignoggle com for more information.

Here are the spots available. The image is not to scale, but shows how "strong" the spots are on the page (dark orange usually yields better click-throughs than the light yellow):

Who visits

Not only is content updated daily, or website traffic and rankings continue to grow as a result of a loyal user base of machinists, home-shop hobbyists, and people interested in finding out more about machining, metalworking machines, cnc conversions, and more.

Think of this website as a cross between the individual's website showing their projects, rec.arts.metalworking, a blog (without the blog), and more.

Bottom line is this. We enjoy working with metalworking machines and see a need for websites that show what can be done with them. If you want to expose your product to this community, advertise here.

We gear the websites' content towards the beginner to intermediate machinist and hobbyist. Most of the content is displayed in a how-to format with pictures and text - a pictorial.

Please inquire with us to find out more information and a rate sheet.
