Pay it Forward!

“It is so important to give back” is a common theme in thriving communities, and I believe that the woodworking community is one of those. In that spirit, you will find a list of tools and general workshop stuff in this post that I found I do not need anymore.

I do not want to simply throw it away for obvious reasons. For starters, the tools are still in working conditions. Used, mind you, but not damaged or wrecked either. A poor addition to any landfill. Sellling them would be another option, and a better one as far as I am concerned, but it is not easy to do these days, and it costs time.

So I want to go with the third option – passing them along. This sentiment is commonly referred to as #PayItForward, and it is similar to selling in the sense that you extract value from the goods you sell – value in terms of making someone else happy.

If possible, I would like to break even on this, meaning I would appreciate it if you paid for shipping. If you want to pay more for something then that would be alright (and much appreciated), too. Just get in touch (via email, dominic at dominicswoodworks.com) and we can work something out.

 

The Goods

Since I have to do this in English as well as in German, I will keep the descriptions short and ask you to search for the specs if you are interested.

  • HVLP spray system with turbine – the Wagner W 550. Comes in a set with two heads, two cans and a special head for radiators, all in a sleek black case.
  • A pocket hole set from Wolfcraft called an Undercover Jig, similar to the more well known blue one.
  • A small lathe from Proxxon, the Micro Woodturning Lathe DB 250. It is too small for anything that I want to turn these days, more geared to spindle turning and, I think, modelmaking.
  • Another one from Proxxon is the Micro Compressor MK 240 with Airbrush AB 100. Airbrush sounded nice but I never got the hang of it, especially switching colors kept annoying me – although that is the kind of thing that I generally do not enjoy, and not specific to that tool.
  • A workbench top by Wolfcraft. Apparently they do not make this anymore, but searching for “Wolfcraft 6162” did the trick for me. This stems from the days where I had a smaller shop (different room), and this looked like a nice addition to my then-workbench. Suffice to say that it did not go well with my general set-up, so maybe someone else can make better use of it.
  • Last but probably not least, a Bosch Xeo, marketed as a mini circular sawfor thin stuff like cardboard, leather, linoleum and the likes.

 

The Bads

Well, not actually bad, but it fit the first headline. If you have checked out any of those items above and want one (or more) of them simply contact me via dominic (at) dominicswoodworks.com so we can work something out. It really is as easy as that!

 

And the Uglies

Sorry, nothing here. I just felt I had to include them to make the previous headlines seem more complete.

Thanks for checking out this post, please share, and remember to be Inspired!
