Pass It On!
One can never have too many tools! But sometimes tools and materials collect dust in our shops and take up space, mental and otherwise. The necessity of the tool and its purpose may have long passed as our work evolved. Now along comes a bright-eyed metalsmith, fresh in the field, who could use that hammer, that shear, that thingy you have to create something new and great. Why not donate your whatchamacallit to the Tool in the Hat fundraiser at the SNAG conference? Get rid of some clutter and do something that will enrich others in our SNAG community and do some good for our field.
We are looking for old tools, metal bits, old books that still have function, unusual materials such as plastics or wood. Odds and ends, basically anything gently used or new that could be of interest to someone else. Let’s see what you’ve got. Thank you!
