SE Tool Library Tool Sharpening Event May 9th


DATE: Saturday, May 9, 2015
TIME: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
WHERE: Parking lot of St. David’s Episcopal Church on the corner of SE 28th and Harrison Street.

Here’s the flyer.

This is the time to get a fine edge on your kitchen knives, axes, chisels, pruners, straight mower blades.

Previous year’s events have been tremendous successes that raised hundreds of dollars for the tool library.

Brian Beeson, the professional tool sharpener who has run our last two sharpening events, does all the sharpening on site out of a cargo trailer. Brian focuses mainly on garden and kitchen tools with prices generally between $6 to $8 per tool. Cash, checks and plastic are all accepted.

Brian commented, people often say they don’t have any “tools” but when you think about pocket knives,kitchen shears, shovels and hoes most people have quite a few tools. According to Brian sharpening tools really makes them safer because you have more control and less resistance with a sharp tool.

Brian also says that while sometimes people feel their tools are too old to bother sharpening, older tools are often of better quality metal than newer ones.

Brian has been sharpening tools all his life and he feels using his sharpening business to raise money for community groups helps him to give back to society.

Come early to be able to receive your finished items on the same day. If there are too many items to finish on Saturday, they will be available for pickup the following week during regular tool library hours (Tues, Thurs and Sat).

Have your tools sharp and efficient for spring gardening and home projects and help your neighborhood tool library at the same time.
