• Equipping a tool repair workshop

    Answers Given

    Answers Favorited

  • I run a tool bank, a charity that lends tools to other charities to do small and large volunteer projects. I am getting a lot of donations of high quality but slightly rusted tools and other tools that need to have their handles replaced. I am trying to get a list of equipment I would need to refurbish and repair hand tools and equip a workshop to handle between 40 and 100 tools per week. I am based in England but could probably source like for like equipment here. Any advice?

Suggest you talk to Tools For Self Reliance. I believe they are in Leeds but have branches all over the UK. They refurbish tools and send them to Africa. I am in the process of setting up a similar operation in Georgia, US for distribution in the Caribbean and Latin America. Good luck, Tom Arsenault Tools For Empowerment

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
