Free: Singer Sewing Machine Needs Repair (Near the Williamsburg Winery) Gifted - Singer #6308 Sewing Machine. One of the throat plate screws is not the original and it's been "stripped" so I can't get the plate off to clear the thread jam. This was used for many years by my sister-in-law, who was an excellent seamstress so it is a good machine. It could probably be repaired by someone with the right tool to remove the screw and the patience to play around with it, and getting the right replacement screw. If you're not handy, it would be worth the time to take it to a Singer repair shop to see what the repair cost would be. PLEASE NOTE: 1) When you reply, include your first name and cell phone number.

Free: Hummingbird Clock - fixable? (Near the Williamsburg Winery) Gifted - Really cute clock but the hands stopped moving even with fresh batteries, so probably a broken gear or gizmo inside. If someone wants to tinker with it, it might be fixable. OR... just use it as a decoration.

Free: Might be fixable - cordless drill (Near the Williamsburg Winery) Gifted - Black & Decker Pivot cordless screwdriver with flat-head and phillips screw bits, and charging cord.

If someone is really handy and has time to take it apart - it MIGHT be fixable.
