Restoration expert Nicole Curtis and Scott Van Campen, of Staten Island MakerSpace, use Bernzomatic blowtorches to repair salvaged chairs at the launch event for the Bernzomatic Find Your Fire Community Grants program, Thursday, Oct. 22, 2015, in New York. MakerSpace is a community center still feeling the effects of Hurricane Sandy three years later. Bernzomatic, the industry leader in handheld torches, is encouraging people to submit a community project for a chance to win one of three $10,000 grants and a visit from Curtis.
