    I run into that a lot.
    People will come over and ask for a tap.
    They'll say _ _ _ _ said you were a machine shop.
    Yeah, machine shop, not tool loaner.
    Some of these people I have never seen before.
    I had one guy ask for a 1\4"pipe tap.
    I asked him if he needed a drill?
    What size is the hole?
    He was like "huh?"
    He thought you just forced the tap into any hole.

    Former neighbor wanted to borrow two large "C" clamps. Said he'd only need them a short while. I reluctantly agreed. I forgot about them for a month. Asked him to bring them back. He said, sure, right away.

    Another month went by and no clamps. I walked over to his place and asked him for the clamps. We went out in his garage. The bastard was using them to hold a board to two brackets to make a shelf.

    Last time that sum bitch ever got to borrow one of my tools. In fact, lending tools is generally a losing proposition. Usually, if you get them back, they are either scratched up, covered with paint or broken. That's only if you ever see them again.

    I was trying to level some bricks in my driveway. Turns out the concrete under it was too high in places...I thought about running to the shop to pick up a pneumatic chisel. But it was a heck of a drive and it wasn't a whole lot to do by hand. So with a hammer and chisel I was getting through the job.
    Neighbor walks over with an electric chisel gun...I reluctantly agree to his overly nice gesture. A few minutes into the job and the chisel breaks with a piece lodged inside the gun.
    So a long ride to work to remove broken piece inside the gun, I clean it up nice then off to the tool supply store to pick up a couple chisels to replace the one I broke. Hand him back his tools, apologize that I broke the bit and had replacements...he said wow, I never use the good ones!

    Then walked back home...picked up my hammer and chisel and finished the job by hand.

    I hate borrowing tools. It always seems to wind up costing me more money and time.
