Power Tool Drag Races return to Columbus, Ohio

Second annual event, Aug. 21, is co-sponsored by Ohio Power Tool.

Back by popular demand, the 2nd Annual Power Tool Drag Races will take place in  Columbus, Ohio on August 21. This event will be put on by the Columbus Idea Foundry and is open to anyone and everyone. The main goal is to demystify mechanical workings, get peoples hands dirty and have some fun. When you bring together Art and Engineering things often get pretty interesting.

The Columbus Idea Foundry is a community workshop, learning center, and occasional art gallery.  Monthly memberships are available to the general public for use of our tools (woodworking, metalworking, welding, plasma cutting, and CNC), as well as computer lab (internet, electronics, embedded control, digital arts software, sketching, photography and more).  If you have a project, come build it here!

The event is co-sponsored by STAFDA distributor member Ohio Power Tool – which has donated several prize packages including tools from popular brands such as Bosch, Milwaukee and DeWalt among others.
