    Good idea!
    At my local Habitat for Humanity Store, they'll take donated power tools and use them in the store shop to build and teach. Then these people will help work on Habitat Homes being built.

    Need new countersinks

    Today, a 20 year-old 3/8ths countersink rolled off the table and was damaged. I can't remember where I got it or what brand it was.

    Need recommendations for new ones. Thanks.

    You should be careful if that tension spring is the original. Are the blades you've been given new and unused? It's not fair to you or the saw if the blades aren't new. Spring for a new 1/4 flex back...
