We’re entrepreneurs and builders, and we’ve visited tool libraries all over North America. While we think they’re awesome, we couldn’t help but ask, why Hamilton didn’t have one? To answer that question, we decided to build one ourselves.
In our opinion, it doesn’t make sense to own a garage full of tools unless you’re a professional or a serious hobbyist. Most people need to cut a few boards and drill a few holes each year, and some people don’t have room in their garages! So why put money into a bunch of tools that won’t be used? This is where the Hamilton Tool Library can help.
We have thousands of tools available to members free of charge, whenever they need them. We also have a fully functional Makerspace and modern equipment, such as a large bed 3D printer. We will have workshops so you can brush up on your skills or learn some new techniques!
With each tool we lend, we hope to make Hamilton a little bit stronger and a little bit better. Please join us!
