Do you have tools to donate?
The Edinburgh Tool Library would love to give your tools a new home, allowing them to continue to give great service, this time to our members. There are a few restrictions, however, on what tools we accept. Please read our guidelines carefully. Thank you!
We have tools for gardening, decorating, and general DIY as well as ladders, bike tools and sewing machines. Members can browse our inventory database online and can book tools for pick up the same week.
Browse the tools below and check out our F.A.Q. page for more information about borrowing and reserving tools.
Our workshops in Custom Lane and Portobello are dedicated woodworking and DIY spaces, complete with a wide range of large-format tools. We have a table saw, band saw, chop saw, planer thicknesser, and a whole host of other power and hand tools at each site.
If you’re curious about whether a particular tool is on site, please reach out to our team.
