Welcome to the Hacksmith Patreon page, where you can help us turn fiction into reality for your entertainment. We are a small team of engineers and creators who quit our day jobs to make YouTube videos full time. Our goal is simple: make awesome things, have fun, and inspire the next generation of engineers!

Why we need your help
What we do is expensive! Prototyping, filming, testing, video editing, overhead, it all adds up and it adds up to a lot. We need your help to cover some of the costs so we can worry less about finances and focus more on building epic projects. Simply put, More money = bigger and better projects. 

What the money will be used for:
  • Parts / materials
  • Tools
  • Employee wages
  • Coffee
  • Fruits… for smashing
  • Camera equipment
  • Costumes
  • Electricity… we use a lot of electricity
  • Software licenses 
  • etc. 

Thank you for supporting us in our goal to turn fiction into reality for your amusement and inspiration!
