Chapter Tool Loan Policy

Chapter tools are for member use only.
Tools are expected to be returned in the condition in which they were checked out.
Tools are to be checked out for a maximum of 30 days.
Tools must be checked back in before they will be made available to the next member.
Members will check tools in and out through the tool coordinator or a chapter officer in the "Tool Coordinator's absence. 
The tool inventory will be posted on the cabinet at TOB. 
The goal is to try to encourage members who want to use chapter tools to be active chapter members as well and if somebody outside the chapter wants access to them, that the conversation should first start with "How can I become a member of the Chapter?"

EAA Chapter 100 has numerous specialized tools available to help people build and maintain their airplanes.  These are tools which are not readily available or only needed a few times -- but they are needed.  To help builders and maintainers avoid having to purchase a specialized  tool,  we are making some available to builders and maintainers.

They are available to members and non-members as  long a member checks them out for the non-member and is responsible for them.  They are not to be used for commercial use.  Borrowing them only takes the approval of a tools monitor and filling out a short form.  Tool monitors are:  Gordy Westphal, Dwayne Hora and any chapter officer.

We are also asking anyone who has specialized tools that others would find useful to donate them to the chapter or at least make them available to other builders.  The value of a donated tool could possibly be used as a donation to a non-profit organization.
