Under the Federal Stronger Communities Program Member for Bean, Mr David Smith MP, assisted with a grant to allow the purchase of a SawStop table saw to reduce the risk of injury to users and improve workshop safety.
Outcome: The provision of the precision saw with its enhanced safety features has enabled a greater number of Men’s Shed members to actively participate in community focused projects.
We were also using the SawStop table saw to build a large number of bird nesting and possum boxes for the community after the recent bushfires in Australia. Recipients have been delighted with them.
The Tuggeranong Men’s Shed made an outdoor bench seat for the Charles Conder Primary School.
