Tools Refurbishment

As part of this group you would be involved in repairing tools and sewing machines that people have donated. Members of the workshop collect and sort out the tools. You learn skills such as grit blasting, grinding, polishing, sanding, and finishing. The  tools are made up in to kits and are sent to countries in Africa and the Middle East.

This workshop is part of the international Tools for Self Reliance Network.  An important part of the workshop is learning about the places the tools are sent to. You find out how the kits have helped people. Getting letters and photographs and meeting some people from the countries means you get to see how the workshop is helping others.
