    Default Out of Work? What Can you Do. Want to help? What do you need done?

    I put this here instead of the lounge to avoid the normal shitting that goes on there - since this is kind of a serious topic and at least tangentially related to EP...I'm sure mods will move it if they don't like it here.

    A number of people are out of work and concerned about paying bills. Some are more fortunate - and may use this as an opportunity to spread their fortune around a bit by getting some of their chores done by someone else.

    • Everyone should realize that under these circumstances, this is a "below market rate" situation.
    • People offering odd jobs may be offering stuff they wouldn't normally pay someone else for, but are doing so to help others out as the primary motivation
    • People seeking odd jobs should not be seeking market rates, but instead looking to bring in some money in a difficult time
    • It might be helpful to use a "add to the list" format, so someone can just look at the list in the last post.

    Work Offered: Need someone to do this work
    Offering: I can do this work

    Just to be clear - by "offering", I mean I am offering these jobs for someone. Not that I am offering to do them. I will update the post to be more clear (:

    Ok, I'll play:

    Offering:

    Small Engine Repair/Tune Ups (Generators, Mowers, Tillers, most anything. I'll do Weedeaters/2 stoke engines but I won't like it)
    Computer Repair - Just about anything you need done.

    Conditions: You have to bring the stuff here as I have a fairly well stocked shop that doesn't travel well.
    Payment: Cash or equivalent in Ammunition (9mm, 12Gauge, 223, .22lr)
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    I figured as much when you said,

    And I'll offer up use of my garage and tools and equipment for anyone who wants to work on a car or small engine or anything else. I am pretty well equipped but don't have a lift. I'd only ask for contributions if you need to burn the a torch or some other consumable. And if anyone wanted to mill out an 80% lower and had one to sell me, I could demonstrate how to use the mill. Hopefully it wouldn't be a demonstration in how NOT to use the mill!
