In the Future of TSD thread several folks suggested more raffles. So, I figured we'd give it a try, with a small monthly raffle.

Here's your chance to help support TSD, and feed your ADs!

It's simple:
1. Go to the TSD Donation page here.
2. Change the quantity to 5 for each ticket you'd like to purchase.
3. Then pay!

Simple as that. $5.00 to enter this raffle!
"May I enter more than once?" Of course! Just purchase a quantity that equals $5.00 per entry! So if you want to buy 2 raffle "tickets", then change the quantity to 10 and pay the $10.00! Want 3 raffle "tickets"? Change the quantity to 15 and pay the $15.00! And so on...

This is open to our international members too!

The deadline for entries is midnight EST Friday, December 16th, 2016.

Winners choose which prize they want, in the order their number is drawn. Yes, this may take several days. Patience is appreciated.

12. Dubl Duck Satinedge
There is a crack in the heel, so Glen (gssixgun) ground out the heel to stabilize the crack and honed the razor to make it usable again. The crack is stable now, unless you drop it! The scales are original and prone to the celluloid warp so you must use care closing it.
Thanks @stingraysrock

13. Several hundred PAL Gold blades
There are probably about 350 in the box. I believe there were 400 when I bought them.
Thanks @stingraysrock

14. Jayaruh #87 400 type brush
with genuine Omega Pro 48 boar knot.
Thanks @Jayaruh
