GAW Guidelines Concerning Private Sales To Other Members

Wood sales and the GAW shop which sells sundry items including abrasives and finishes are available at Club meetings for the convenience of members. GAW generates some income from these activities which in turn benefits members by keeping subscription rates low.

In principle GAW are happy to encourage those members who wish to offer their own woodturning items such as tools and jigs for sale to other members under the following arrangements.

Items should not compete with existing shop and wood sales.

A notice advertising the item can be posted on the GAW notice board at any Club meeting subject to space being available and/or on the GAW website (by contacting web@gaw.org.uk).

For sale and wanted ads will be removed from the website after 3 months, unless we have been notified to keep it for a further 3 months, no item will be advertised for more than six months.  If an item is sold or received then please tell us so we can remove the advert and avoid any unnecessary confusion.

GAW can take no responsibility for any of the items which may be offered for sale, or purchased by members, and members enter into any agreements entirely at their own risk.

When we return to normal meetings there will be an opportunity for private sales at each club meeting from 19:00 – 19:25.

There will no obligation to pay a commission to GAW for any private sale advertised through GAW, but any voluntary donation will, of course, be gratefully received.
