By Edhat Subscriber

Is there somewhere in Santa Barbara County where I can rent or loan tools?

O'Reilly Auto Parts rents tools to install something you bought from them. Milpas and Giffin Rentals have tools for rent.

You need to be more specific. Tools can range from simple hand tools, to specialized industry-specific tools that you won't find in a homeowner's garage.

So if you're just fixing your bike, you can go to Bici Centro. If you're putting in a driveway, you probably need Milpas Rentals. Or if we knew what you needed to do and where you are, perhaps a neighbor has them.

Polonius:
Neither a borrower nor a lender be,
For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.

Hamlet Act 1, scene 3, 75–77

Nice, 824. Really. I can't resist Shakespeare.
But the barter economy often works. My father's materials and tools will hopefully go to Habitat for Humanity or People's Self-Help Housing. Wish I could help the OP, but I don't even know the tools; haven't taken stock. They do technically belong to my father's wife.

Depending on what tool you're looking for I believe Hayward Lumber has some and Buena Tool may rent.

832. Ask the wife if you can help assess the value of the tools. eBay will give you some sense of what you have.

Some of those old tools can be collector's items. The planes, for instance.

If she sells them at a yard sale, let us know. My one friend LOVES picking up $50 tools for 50¢.

Another vote for Milpas Rental - from hand tools to excavators - they've got them. They keep their equipment in good shape and are easy to deal with.

Your neighbor.

Grammar police here: I believe you meant "borrow" instead of loan...

Your Grammar wears combat boots to work.

I thought OP meant he wanted to loan out his tools/share with others. Thanks for setting me straight. "Borrow" makes more sense.

Well, the op said rent or loan. It does seem like borrow would possibly make more sense.
