Charleston, South Carolina

Do we have any members in Charleston, South Carolina? I need a representative there for a large tool exchange. Seller is unwilling to crate / ship and I need someone - preferably some one I am familiar with - to act as a local agent.

Thank you!

I'll volunteer if you're willing. I know we aren't familiar with each other just yet, but this could be a good oppurtunity for that! I've been around the forum for almost a year and don't plan on going anywhere.

I've gained a lot of knowledge from this site and it would be a pleasure to give back to one of the contributors of said knowledge in some way.

Edit: I also run a manufacturing warehouse with a loading dock and forklift and would have the ability to ship a crated object via a main freight carrier

PM me if you need to

I appreciate it. I will see how the auction goes and get back with you. My friend Roy is out of pocket right now but he is normally close enough to have handled it. After speaking with the seller on the phone it sounds like he may have some other items of interest to me and the museum so it might warrant a trip up there myself.

Again, Thank you and I will be in touch!

That seems like quite the project you have going there! Well, not that I needed convincing, but I'd be happy to help your cause in any way I can from my location. I majored in Historic Preservation at College of Charleston so I understand the importance of keeping history alive for others to see.

Hopefully there will be something I can do. If you do decide to make the trip out here, maybe we can meet up. I'd be happy to share some of our city's history and I wouldn't mind learning a thing or two about hand tools from you.

I spent 4 yrs in Charleston, love that city. Charleston AFB, and the city have changed a lot since I left in "73". My lady and I returned to Charleston 2 yrs ago for a week. We traversed the city and surrounding area, resturants, the battery, Folly beach and Isle of palms.
I give praise to the new hiway system now in Charleston, sure makes it easier to get downtown, without having to use Rivers avenue or Dorchester road.
We took the horse drawn carriage tour, and loved it.

My father was my inspiration for woodworking, wish he was still around for more advice. Luv ya Dad.

We took the horse drawn carriage tour, and loved it. Ate at many of the new resturants, checked the quaint shops, I had to buy one of the baskets from the lady's that make them. I had a hard time selecting the one I wanted, they were so many and they all looked great.
