HGAC donates worm-drive beam saw to ACTI program
Every year, as part of HGAC's Investing in Youth Initiative, a Learning Lab is held at the Spangler Barn to teach building trades students about timber framing.
To help students prepare for the lab, HGAC has donated a worm-drive beam saw to the Adams County Technical Institute.
Students will now be able to familiarize themselves with how to operate the saw before they participate in the lab, according to Greg Kaufmann, the HGAC board member who serves as coordinator for the Learning Lab.
