    Hello all.

    I've personally contributed, but have always had Mixed Emotions about charity threads. After all, I never have wanted anyone to feel guilty for not giving. Some can't, and some just dot want to-there is nothing wrong with this IMHO.

    I just learned that a member here, who shall remain nameless, just lost his job this week. I just can't live with the fact that someone with 5 children has to go through this, especially at Christmas time.

    I'm offering up 2 hybrid builds. I'm offering labor only, as I feel that this is the best way to give to someone in lieu of cash or merchandise that costs money.

    The member is too proud to accept the offering. He will remain nameless, and all proceeds of my builds will go directly to him.

    PLEASE DON'T ASK ME WHO THE MEMBER IS. I won't divulge his name.

    If you would like to offer something up at a price, please do so. ONLY LABOR and nothing else please. No parts, money, etc... Something you can make or do, offer with a Price.

    I have already forwarded my friend a portion of the proceeds from my builds. He will get the rest after completion of the builds. If the recipients want to pay up front, they can paypal me F&F and I will send to the member.

    This is quite generous Al. I do like helping neighbors, but must admit I have been a bit perplexed by the continual stream of benefit threads on internet forums.

    I couldn't agree more.

    I'm not asking a soul to contribute a thing other than labor if they feel fit. I'm offering up my work. If one wants to offer theirs, they may. They should be reimbursed for parts and material and this shouldnt be included in offering. It makes it easier to accept IMHO.

    If one wants to buy needed parts from me, they can.

    If noone wants to offer work, they won't be singled out and they don't need to.

    I'd like to sponsor part of these builds, or at least offset some of the cost of the parts, etc.

    A friend in need, is a friend indeed, Al. I don't need names or any other info than what you've provided.

    PM sent.

    I’ll offer up exhaust deflectors that I don’t normally sell. I make 2 sizes, one is 288 size the other is about twice that size. I’ll get some pics up a little later. $3 each for the small ones, $4 each for the bigger ones. Buy 5 or more and shipping is on me. Less than 5, please add $7 to your payment for a flat rate USPS box.

    All proceeds headed to the Doc.

    Edit: small deflector pics added

    I'd love to step up and offer to do a woods port.....but I'm just too far behind. I can't complete the job in a timely manner.

    I'll think of something.

    Don't want to obligate anyone for anything. My thread and my idea.

    I know it sounds confusing. It's the best I could think of to help a friend out through a tough time.

    I will do a case split rebuild on any Husqvarna 2xx series saw or newer (something that parts are still readily available) or a comparable Stihl or Echo. Labor on me, if a Husqvarna or Echo you pay my cost for parts, Stihl you provide parts. Fair warning, I am slower than molasses on a cold January morning. However I do really crappy work to make up for it.
