  • Two people agreed this was a good idea of mine so here we go.

    Lots of us have boxes of tools that get aired once in a blue moon whilst other forum members have to fork out for tools they will use once.
    And in an emergency wouldn't be useful to know you could lay your hands on some esoteric tool nearby when shops are closed ?

    Post where you are and what you are willing to lend to fellow forum members in need and keep your contact details up to date.

    Start your post with the phrase "Tool library" and your postcode split so anyone using search can try to find tools by region or a specific area.
    e.g. for me

    Tool library SE 13

    Pedal spanner Park tools
    Cable cutter Icetoolz
    Cone wrench 15mm Tacx
    Cone wrench 17mm Tacx
    Cone wrench 19mm Tacx

    Crank puller
    Bottom bracket tool campagnolo mirage etc
    Freewheel tool shimano

    Bottle opener

  • c'mon tynan, by the look of your desk you've probably got a small assembly line complete with a workforce of oompaloompas. May I borrow your bottle opener though?

    Brixton/Stockwell/Camberwell area (SE5)

    Spanners
    Shimano BB tool
    Allen Keys (up to size 8)
    Chain bolt extractor
    Spoke Wrench
    Lithium Grease
    Tire levers

    On second thoughts doubt that lot will be much use to anyone... I do have 2 old steel road frames and a few other cheap parts though.

    Also considering building a truing stand in the style of Hovis Brown. (ie very "conceptual" ho ho ho only turd and hovis will get that and only turd will find it funny. Hovis will simply roll his eyes.)

  • Got a bunch of workshop tools - think i got nearly everything apart from cutting tools - Phil Wood BB tool, old skool Dura-Ace headset spanner, all headset and BB install/removal tools, drop out alignment tool etc etc.

    I am based in Stockwell SW9. You're welcome to come and use the tools for free if you're in trouble although donations are accepted!

  • we should do a LFGSS tool database. Where people can check in tools and location.
    Nice searches like : 'Find a chain bolt extractors in SW9' Or something..
    what do you guys think ? Is it worth the effort ?
