I have the following tools to either sell, or barring that, donate to a Christian helps ministry in the Houston Metro area.

The items are.

#1. Black and Decker Firestorm 10” Sliding Compound Miter Saw. Excellent condition, used for about 3 years before the itch to get a slider got me… Blade still plenty sharp. Just needs dust cleaned off of it to look brand new. #2. Black and Decker Firestorm miter saw stand for above mentioned miter saw. #3. Black and Decker Firestorm router. Router works good. Missing 1/2 collet (which is available from cheap…), like the miter saw, needs to be dusted, but it’s okay… #4. 2 gray Ryobi 8”x1” grinder wheels, never used.

Will take $150.00 for the lot.

If you are not interested in buying these items, I am willing to donate these to a worthy cause. If you know of a worthy cause in the Houston Metro area that meets my criteria, please let me know. And while I am loathe to bring up religion here, this is my stuff, and I can give it to whomever I wish right? I don’t want to start a discussion or debate on the merits or lack there of of any of this, simply put, these things are important to me and must be met if I am going to make the donation. So here are my criteria for donation.

#1. Must be a Christian helps ministry of some sort sanctioned by a reputable church, Diocese, or Convention. I don’t care if it is going to the Baptists, Catholics, Lutherans or whoever, just has to be properly a properly sanctioned, mainstream Christian ministry… #2. The recipient must have intent to use, not resell the items. At least most of them. I can already figure out how to give my stuff away so a worthy cause can make some money. I want them to get greater value from these items. #3. The ministry must in some way support struggling families either by using the tools to say help build or repair homes for the poor, or to teach skills to a younger person needing those skills so that he / she can support their families. I have in mind the young guy that came out of high school with no real marketable skills and a pregnant girlfriend now wife… More than a few of my old high school friends were those guys, and it’s folks like them and their families I want to help.
