What is Tool Share?
Tool Share is a project run by Transition that helps local residents as well as University students and staff share and maintain tools together. Tool Share works just like a library. You can borrow tools and equipment (including DIY, kitchen and garden) instead of having to buy them. It costs £15 to join for one year.
How it works?
1) View and reserve tools online
2) Borrow up to 5 tools (at the same time) for a maximum of 13 days
3) Reservations and returns by each Tuesday latest
4) Tool pick-ups from Thursday onwards
Any one tool can be renewed 2 times allowing for a maximum loan length of 20 days
We are moving away from a face-to-face system with the first 6 lockers up at the Student’s Union . All to give you more flexibility and accessibility. After you reservation is confirmed, you will receive an email detailing a locker number and lock code. Over the duration of the loan the same locker will remain empty so you can return your tool(s) using the same lock code.
We are looking for people to get involved in other ways too. You can simply donate tools or volunteer to help with tool maintenance and lending.
