Title: January 2017 Donation Draw- Drive one right up the center!
Post by: Grant Lamontagne on January 03, 2017, 07:54:58 PM
Well, since it seems I am not famous enough to have been killed in 2016 we are here again with the Donation Draw, and once again I am going to try to do something a bit different.  As I mentioned in a recent thread (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,68896.msg1404565.html#msg1404565) this month's Donation Draw is going to be the Gerber Center-Drive.  Usually I do a bit of a preamble to get your attention before mentioning it, but as I have already spilled the beans that seems like a bit of a waste of time.

So we are giving away a multitool- how is that new?  Well. before I get to that I want to reiterate that this was arguably the most interesting multitool of 2016- despite the Victorinox Pioneer X winning the 2016 Multitool.org Multitool Of The Year (http://multitool.org/news/multitool-org-multitool-of-the-year-2016) by a fair bit, I personally feel the Pioneer X is sort of old hat as various modders have been making them for years.  But, none of our modders have been making a Center-Drive, and originality has to count for something.

If you want to read my review of the Center-Drive, you can see it HERE (http://multitool.org/tools/gerber/review-of-the-gerber-center-drive-multitool).

If you want to try it yourself, you are in luck, because that's what we are doing this month.  I am offering my Center-Drive, the exact one in these pictures and the one I reviewed to anyone who wants to try it out.  Bear in mind, I have used it, so if you feel the need to use it hard and scratch it up, have at it.  Use the crap out of it for a few days (please no more than a week) and then send it off to the next person on the list.  If you are interested in trying it out, and maybe winning your own, donate a minimum of $10 to the FORUM OPERATIONAL FUND (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php?action=treasury) and send me a PM with your address.  I'll send MY Center-Drive to the first person that contacts me, and you will get your turn in the order I get your addresses.

But, I expect that one back after it's made it's rounds, however long that takes, because the winner of the contest will receive a brand new in box Center-Drive, never even opened!  Yup- the air inside is straight from the Gerber Factory in Portland, Oregon.  And, it's the more expensive version with the bit set.

Of course, as usual, that Center-Drive only goes to a new home if we hit our goal of $275.  Anyone who donates a minimum of $10 US is in the draw, and for every $10 you donate you get another chance to win.  If we hit the goal before midnight on January 15th (Forum Offset Time) then we'll come up with an Early Bird Prize- and if not then we won't, so there!  :pok:

How's that for doing something different?  :D
