About a year ago, I saw an interesting piece on cable about a public
library in some town in California that had a tool lending program.
They lend out both hand and power tools to individuals who might have
only occasional use for them or who might want to try something without
investing heavy duty dead presidents.
We've talked about uniform banks here, but has anyone tried a personal
camping equipment lending library? I'll bet your unit has a lot of
former scouts who would be willing to donate perfectly good equipment
which they just don't use any more.
Just a thought.
