Various people have been talking about sharing tools and other things that you cannot now get from a shop in this covid19 era, which reminded me that we do have a tool-sharing category on this website. Here are some previous posts in it:

Sharing rarely used tools

(this is near the top of the list of categories displayed at the top and down the left sidebar of the Forum page).

We were rather concerned about sharing equipment like a lawnmower in case it goes wrong, or worse somebody gets injured, and questions would arise over whether this resulted from a pre-existing fault, or misuse by the borrower. Perhaps we need to have a disclaimer that the borrower would sign? Any suggestions welcome.

Other equipment would be less of a problem - eg if you feel like spending your enforced captivity stripping wallpaper, borrowing a wallpaper steamer would be helpful!

Lots of other stuff could be shared too - like Lucy's post asking to borrow DVD's - I have added the category Sharing stuff other than tools for those.
