That reminds me, my brother has had my clay pigeon thrower since November.Sometimes I hate being the guy with all the tools . I will no longer lend any tools out to anybody !
There are very , very few exceptions to that rule like Carl , he's good for returning things .
Throughout all these years , if I needed a tool , I'd buy it or rent it if that was more practical .
I do have a heck of a collection of all kinds of tools . Between owning a home and powered gasoline tools , vehicles , you know you need all kinds of things .
No more loaning , I'd rather be there and help the guy to make sure I get everything back !
I'm the same way with my tools: i show up with them to help, & they go with me when i leave.
