Been reading a lot on this site – got all manner of ideas running rampant through a normally empty sedate head. After reading the ‘what we got for Christmas’ forum and some others, I have a question/idea/ whatever you’d call it.
I did an ‘inventory’ in the shop and I have some tools that although serviceable I never use. (Nope – not counting the wobblehead dado ) for instance- I have lots of corded electric drills. Two I know I haven’t used in over 8 years – since packing and moving the first time. The list grew quickly on tools that I just never use – the “old” scrollsaw – we got a new one, then a GOOD one…. etc
The local high schools have done away with wood shop class.
I don’t know anyone still in the boy scouts and my attempts to find information there haven’t yielded much in the way of results.
Here it come – if anyone is still reading –
How can I give new life to serviceable tools I don’t have a real use for?
I can’t afford to send them to the Islands of Gotno Money, or to include an ac generator…
The local charities I know of that do work (such as rebuilding in La. after the hurricanes etc), told me they could ALWAYS use cash donations but had no need for old tools….
I’m not much on Ebay and such – packing- shipping costs sheesh…. they’re old tools, not gold and not antiques
I’d LIKE to donate them to a good home and not just the local pawn shop for a pitiful sum.
Any ideas appreciated.
