A Tool Librabry In Sydney?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a tool library or something similar to Autozone in the states where you hand over a deposit, grab the tools you need and return it for you deposit back...

 

I'm after things like a large breaker bar, torque wrench, puller, over sized sockets. Cheap enough to buy I know, but really a waste for a once off job.

Probably enough of us here with stuff they could lend out if you ask nicely!

Well no harm in giving that a go - Doing rear hubs so if anyone want to be particularly nice I'm after a long breaker bar, a 30mm socket and a suitable torque wrench to tighten it back up to 175mn.

 

I'm in Haberfield and happy to pick up/drop off same day or if anyone is keen to help I'd be very appreciative!

Yeah Mate, all good PM me and we'll work it out. You could even do it on site if it makes it easier for you.

Torque wrenches are cheap (<$50 including postage) and worth getting just for your wheel nuts.

This looks exactly the same as a Kinchrome one I purchased a couple of years ago for over $100.

I a torque wrench i got from Aldi for $25 and it has served me well for the last 2yrs.

I even had a $300~ odd one that i used straight after mine and both were spot on.

 

 

Cheers

I remember in the UK, there were fully functional car workshops with everything you could want - paid by the hour to use anything and everything. I miss the benefits of having 70 million people on a small island. :)
