"The Phinney Neighborhood Center's tool lending library is one example of group ownership working to everyone's advantage. This program, still in a growth phase with limited hours, nevertheless shows the possibilities. For reasonable weekly use fees that generally range from $2 to $30 (a few expensive appliances run $80-$115), you can borrow the tool you need for your job, and then return it (with no need to clear another storage space in your home!). Available tools include basics like extension cords and wrenches, yard tools like lawn mowers and pruning shears, and even advanced equipment like a pressure washer, cement mixer or table saw."
