A State government grant will ensure Taree Manning River Men's Shed members are safe while making their handmade goods.
The shed has received $5000 to purchase and install a Saw Stop table.
The table will help prevent life altering injuries as it incorporates a brake mechanism that has been described as 'the world's safety table saw'.
"I am delighted to announce the funding for the organisation which continues to provide a social meeting and companionship point for its members," Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead said.
"I look forward to visiting the Taree Manning River Men's Shed to see first-hand the new Saw Stop table after its installation."
The funds are derived from the NSW government's Community Building Partnership Program (CBPP).
"The range of this year's funding is very broad, with each one of the successful applicants providing beneficial infrastructure to their respective communities," Mr Bromhead said.
"Again this year, we had a huge response with applications for a grant under the CBPP and I've been delighted to personally phone successful applicants with the good news and hear first-hand the delight the news brings.
"Raising funds for many organisations is often very difficult, so these grants will enable projects to be started and others to be finished, all to the benefit of their local communities."
The 2020 grant program opens for applications on May 4 and closes at 5pm on June 12.
