$ RAFFLE $ stabilizing chamber $ RAFFLE $
Hello guys, a quick rundown on the purpose of this raffle.
I have mentioned before that i volunteered teaching a woodworking class at my church. The attendance was not mandatory and was encouraged, most of the kids that showed up had some fun and intersting projects. Some were good kids, some were troubled but this class gave the some other knowledge. Ages range from 8-15, sometimes 10 and sometimes 3 kids would show up.
Most of the tools are donated and as we all know donated most of the time means someone didnt want to take it to the dump and this was one way of a tax rigt off
I dont volunteer their anymore do to my twin boys being born and they take up alot of my time. The class has an old craftman band saw, the platic cover kind and its old, unsafe and is just junk.
What i want to do, is this raffle, and the goal is to collect enough to get a new rikon band saw. It would be nice to get the 14" ($419 sale @woodcraft) but the 10" ($289 @ woodcraft) would be an upgrade eitherway.
