With the Summer Woodworking Challenge upon us it is time to get out in the shop and start making sawdust!

Need a tool for those tricky and challenging joints?

Want to try a tool out before making a purchase?

Well now is your chance with a new and exclusive LumberJocks.com feature. How Martin did this is still a mystery! Look for the new CTS button on your LumerJocks browser and with a click of a button you can visit the shop of a LumberJock buddy and borrow a tool. Remember this is an honor system so you need to return the tool in the same or better condition. This is a two-way street, so open up your shop for some CyberToolSharing and get going on that summer challenge project! Creativity has never been a problem for LumberJocks and now tool access is also no problem!

Follow me as I explore Mot’s Shop and get my hands on that Festool Domino!

This is a joint Canadian – US project from MAD Productions (Mot and David)

Hi David;

I have a need for an old world work bench front vice but rather than a loan I would like to purchase.
In the back of my mind I was considering the possibility of LJ Trade, Barter,or Sell added to the tool share. This of corse would require some refinement.
The cost of shipping could be prohibitive on a loan basses I would think.

I have some scrap wood, returns not necessary, unless it’s to return an exotic to replace the pine that was taken.

This does save shipping.
