Well, as you can read, I am supposed to request donations for my science team. Its called Science Olympiad, is where you can read on. Attached is my copy of the request form, on the school letterhead.

Appologies if this comes off odd…. I don’t like asking for hand outs… lol…

In brief, what we are looking for is, well, pretty much anything.

-Motors,pulleys, etc
-Saw blades, Razor Blades(not the shaving kind) etc-> This one is more to help me help them; For most of this, we will be using my shop. And frankly, I haven’t a blade fine enough, for working with balsa. Razor blades are also good for working with balsa
-Electrical Supplies
-PPE (Eyes, Ears, Tounge.. lol.. etc)
-Any training manuals; I may or may not let them operate the tools. Its girls, so they will probably not wanna, but, I may.

Anything, just a couple ideas. What I mean, is, if you happen to have a box of old cut-offs, or maybe a really warped board. Or maybe you have an old 110t blade, that’s too dull for your purposes. Chances are I’ll work for me, in the mitre saw, making Balsa stix. The only thing, that I request not be used… is Ear Plugs… lol.. yuck..(well yuck for them)... lol…

Attached is my Official Paper. And, don’t quote me on this, but, I believe it can be claimed on taxes… could be don’t quote me.. lol…

Note to admins: I did talk to Martin, he said it would be okay to post it here.
