Massive thanks to everyone who donated their tooling between January and March. We’re still processing the final figure to make our donation to The Pantry. To date, we have collected over 45kgs in recyclable carbide.

We’ll announce the final figure on Facebook soon, so please keep an eye out to see how your donations have contributed.


Did you know that 1083 people were sleeping rough in W.A, according to the 2016 census? Over the past 5 years there has been a 13.7% increase in homelessness.

The team at STREET FRIENDS WA are running an amazing organisation to help the people of Perth. Aiming to make life more comfortable for WA’s homeless, this organisation receives no government assistance and rely completely on the generosity of the community to survive.

Every Thursday evening between 5pm & 6pm in Moore St. Perth they distribute sleeping bags, blankets, warm clothing, hygiene products and other warm provisions to the homeless from their storage facility. They also volunteer alongside the Sikh Association helping them distribute hot food and bread every Thursday from 6pm to 8pm in Moore St.

We are keen to raise as many funds as possible from now, through to the end of June. You can help us by donating your old carbide directly to us, and by sharing our social media posts far and wide.

What you can donate:

✅ Compression tools
✅ Turnover knives
✅ Lathe insert knives
✅ Solid carbide planer knives
✅ Spiral cutters

If you are unsure, please give us a call, we’re always happy to help.
