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
