Best Place to Pound, Screw, and Grind - 2002
Tool Lending Center
You might expect to get a different kind of service by calling 467-TOOL, but the TLC available at the other end of this line stands for Tool Lending Center. The center offers more than 200 implements that you can rent for free -- from bull floats to pony clamps to kneepads -- and you could get hot just reading its Web site. Once you set up an account, you select your tools in person at the site and then check them out, as at a library. Whether you're a DIY carpenter, gardener, electrician, plumber, or power-tool user (or if you just like to dress up like one), the center's got it all. And really, who couldn't use a stud sensor?
