How does a tool library work ?

Library pictogram 300.jpg

Our tool libraries work like a regular library (and not like a rental company charging a fee for each borrowed tool).

Members pictogram.jpg

You become a member for a year (€40) or a month (€20). Your contribution is used to maintain or buy new tools.

Tools pictogram 300.jpg

You can then borrow quality tools without any restrictions. After one or two weeks, you bring everything back.

We are a non-profit initiative run almost entirely by a group of dedicated volunteers. We’re always on the lookout for new blood!

This is the vanguard of a 21st century economy: reducing waste, stimulating repair and creating an alternative to the throwaway society.

 

Tournevie is an affordable and ecological alternative to more expensive rental or sales outlets for repair or home renovation.

Tournevie is an open commons. The community itself manages the tools using a set of transparent rules. Anyone can join us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions


More questions ?

Here’s a list of the five most popular questions


We ask our members to keep our tools in good working condition. These and other conditions can be consulted in our rules and regulations

Reading the rules and regulations is mandatory before borrowing tools for the first time.

WHAT ARE THE RULES WHEN USING OUR TOOLS?


What is the standard loan duration?

The standard loan period is a week for an individual user, and two weeks for organizations.

You can extend your loan once with another a week via your online account. Our extensive FAQ explains how to do that.

If you know you’ll need the tools an extra week, you can let us know at the lending desk when you come to get the tools. However, the possibility to reserve items stays limited to one week.


Are you looking for the right machine to screw, drill, chisel or mix? Our online manual will help you find the right tool in an instant.

WHICH TOOL SHOULD I USE / RESERVE?


DOES TOURNEVIE SELL TOOL CONSUMABLES?

We sell the most common consumables (like saw blades, sanding paper, …) applicable to the tools in our inventory at a fair price.

Our offer is not as extensive as that of a wholesale shop, but you can purchase our consumable apiece rather than taking home a full box. We buy back what you don’t use.

An overview of our consumables and the corresponding prices apiece can be consulted online


Can i donate tools?

High quality tools that still function well, or tools that can be repaired with a reasonable effort, are always welcome. We don’t accept cheap and broken appliances.

Do you like our initiative, and have you got spare tools lying around? Then get in touch with Thomas, our main tool specialist. 


 

Haven’t found what you are looking for?

 

Note: the extended FAQ is a ‘work in progress’. We continue to expand it as we go along.
