I need some help for the other vets I teach
Aug 23rd, 2017 at 3:43pm
 
I need all the hand tools I can get that everyone no longer needs. When a vet thinks he is done with teaching and wanting to go on their own I try to supply them with a mini lathe and tools.

Hairy has sent me some nice old ones and we could use lot more. Mostly we could us skews, larger scrappers, spindle gouges and bowl gouges.

I can help with some shipping but funds are tight and can only help a few people with funds to ship them to me.

Also if you no longer have need of a mini or midi lathe we sure could use that too.

Thanks everyone

Arlin

Arlin, I don't know how you typically go about this but I would suggest contacting some of the tool vendors directly.
If you have an "actual organization", let them know your situation and many times they will donate tools to a good cause.

Thanks for the help Ed

We are still looking for funding to get enough to pay for a non profit business license and I was told my a lawyer it would take $2500 to have them do the whole thing. Then we can maybe some help from businesses.

The problem is people do not want to donate until we get the non profit for a tax deduction and we can not get the non profit with out the funds. I am thinking it is the perfect Catch 22. Smiley

I was afraid of something like that.
I would still try to contact them, the worst they can say is no.

Thanks for showing me that.  If it is not to hard I might be able to do is again if it is not to hard.

I will check it out.

One reason it was going to cost so much is the legal people were going to do the filing with the State, Federal, the business stuff and I do not remember what else since we are not capable of doing that.

Thank you so much for telling me about it.  I found were if I let them do the whole package it would only cost $595 which is a big big weight from my shoulders.

Arlin, would you be able to purchase BB tools, if I were to donate $100.00. I don't have any tools to send, it would just cost to much. I would rather donate a few dollars to you, rather then pay it out for postage. I'm not on the site real often, so, maybe it would be best if you contacted me by e-mail. My e-mail address is; lenmullin57@gmail.com. If you don't want to do it that way, send me a payment request for the money by using Pay-pal. I could send you the money on my own, I would just need your Pa-Pal info to send it to. I don't want or expect a tax receipt, it would be of no use to me as I'm Canadian and I wouldn't be able to use it. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Len

First what is BB?

Second is I would not be buying tools at this time if it is ok with you.  I would save it for the non profit costs.  I do not wish to take your money for things it is not intended for.

Thank you and I set you a PM

Arlin, I don't care what you spend the money on, there's got to be somewhere you can put it to good use. I just mentioned tools, because that's what I thought you would want it for. A receipt for the donation is not needed, it would be of no use to me. I'm Canadian, and American donations from Canadians aren't claimable. I haven't read the PM you sent me yet, I'll read it as soon as I'm done with this posting.
