Rent tools – when does iFixit start renting out tools?
Dear iFixit community, dear iFixit meta-team,
I would like to propose that iFixit starts renting tools like a library of things.
I had to buy a antistatic mat for a macbook repair as I had no way to lend or rent one in the neighborhood. That’s why I think it would make so much sense for iFixit to start renting out tools, often being not used too much.
Instead of having paid 50€ for the tools, I would have paid 25€ to rent the same tools. As I will not start a repair café, the tools will only be lying around here after having used them for an hour max, the screwdrivers even only for a minute in total.
What are your thoughts on this?
Would you rent tools, users?
Would you create a library of things, iFixit?
Thanks to make this world better!
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
