Where tobacco is a vegtable
I am sure everyone is aware of the vast devastation of the recent hurricanes. I have a good friend who lost his house and everything in it. The morning of the 10th, a tornado ripped the roof off of his house and over the next 24 hours everything inside the house was soaked. The real kicker is his wife is about 4 months from having their first child. They plan to rebuild but the time frame obviously is beyond baby time. They have lodging figured out at this point but I do not think they fully know how bad it will set them back. Sure the insurance company promises a check but ...well anyone that has ever dealt with an insurance claim knows you always come up short.

I kept thinking what can I do and then it hit me... I have a 359xp sitting here to build. It has a ported top end to go on it, Hyway, that Red97 ported and sent to me. He sent it to me knowing I would need to do some clean up on it as he was headed back out of town in short order. Termitebuffet / Randy D has offered to double check everything before it's bolted down. The saw will have new seals and if the bottom end is suspect, it will get split and new bearings too. I think I have a 20" 3/8 Bar and Chain I can send along with this saw. Pictures of the saw will come in the next day or two. If I can find some other things to add I will.

Shipping is all on me to the continental US and if an international winner is picked, we will sort it out.


Other Items:
Paragon Builder / Dan has offered a port job.
Treemonkey / Scott has offered a port job.

@Nixon - 28" ES 91DL .050" been mounted and never run with a loop of chain
@RandyMac - Tin Logger cap


They have a "Go Fund Me" Click here to support Hurricane Relief for Patti & Phil organized by Anne CG

How I would like to run this is:

Every $10 donated gets an entry. $50 will get you 6.

Donate to "Go Fund Me" with your name and then add "SH" to the note. THEN send me a PM here on Saw Hawgz and let me know your real name so I can be sure to add you to the list! The cut off will be Sunday Oct. 8th at 6 pm EST. At that point I will total all of the entries and use a number generator to pick the winner off a spread sheet where I enter the entries. I will attempt to make a video of the whole selection process as everyone loves a video.

I've never run anything like this before and I am open to constructive comments to help me get through it. They have not asked for a thing and give to others all the time... this time I want to help them all I can.

Jimmy , kinda skint at the moment . I'll do my part to help out before this closes .
I understand being tight... if you are tight its no biggie. If I wasn't so tight myself I would have just sent a chunk. Instead I take what I have... put it into this saw, and hope to help make a bigger impact.
