  • Where to donate table saw?

    (8 replies)

    We have a table saw that we want to donate.   it's been in our basement almost 2 decades, never used.

    However -- WHERE does one donate this type of item???  ideally, they'd also be willing to pick up.  Please don't suggest Craigslist -- too many negative experiences.

    Thank you!

    You could contact these organizations (below) to check if they could use a donation.  If no luck, I might be interested in the table myself.  I am a single mom with my own home.  But the house is 100 years old and I am constantly having to do upgrades and repairs. I've been using a hand-held circular saw to cut wood, but it is not very accurate.  If you can't get the saw to a good organization, feel free to contact me.  Text is fastest (510) 684-8407.  I live in Berkeley and would pick up if it's within 10 miles or so.  Good luck!

    Seems like something the Berkeley Tool Lending Library might be interested in...

    Call the Berkeley Tool Lending Library!  It's attached to the South Branch library and has a cadre of volunteers who could pick it up if the want it.
