Pass It On - Donate Your Unwanted Whatchamacallit

Pass It On

One can never have too many tools, right? True, 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 actually use that hammer, that shear, that thingy you have and create something new and great with it. Why not donate your whatchamacallit to SNAG’s Tool In The Hat project?

If you are attending the SNAG conference in New Orleans this year, to give a tool simply sign up during conference registration or email Dianne deBeixedon at ddebeixe@odu.edu. Then drop your item at our conference desk. It’s easy.

If you are not attending but want to donate regardless, email Dianne too. Thanks.

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 got. Thanks for doing this!
