Default Tool library debuts in Ottawa

Not super new idea, I remember reading about them in Mother Earth News but I am glad to see the newer generations starting and using them.

Seeking a saw? New 'tool library' debuts in Ottawa

Need a highly-specific saw for an upcoming renovation, but don't want to buy it? Got an old drill lying around collecting dust?
You may want to get in touch with the Ottawa Tool Library.
The local non-profit is designed to get donated, second-hand tools into the hands of its members, for one week at a time — just like one might borrow a book or a DVD from a traditional library.

The Ottawa Tool Library takes donated tools and lends them out to its members — including this mysterious tool, which co-founder Bettina Vollmerhausen says they haven't quite identified yet. (Giacomo Panico/CBC Ottawa)

BTW I think this is a fancy version of a trim saw you use to cut door trim at the bottom when installing tile.

No need to rip the trim off from around the doorway. The "hook" allows you to remove the trimmed piece.

Auto tool lending has been around for a while so it's great that it's expanding into tools you can use on home projects.
Forgive your enemies - it messes with their minds.
