Friday the 13 th, 2021, proved to be a lucky day for us at the Veterans Support Group
Men’s Shed, as it was the day the Bala Wall Saw was installed by Lance and Patrick
from Leda Machinery. This saw was generously donated to the shed by Bunnings
Robina, and it will be a great asset, as it not only has a smaller footprint giving us
some extra floor space, but it is a much safer and more ergonomic saw to operate.
Our old panel table saw was sold for $2,800.00, which will more than offset the
installation cost of the wall saw. The installation started at 9am, and with the help of
several shed members and the Leda team, it was completed at 5pm, with huge
smiles all round.
Freedom Forklifts donated the use of a “container spec forklift”, without which the
installation would not have been possible. The video shown here tells the tale in all
its detail, thus saving the memory for all members to enjoy.
