Branches still around?

ugly blade

If you’ve got some branches hanging out from that storm this winter – that still need to be chopped – or you can’t make it to our next chainsaw class, maybe you should check out these effective pruning blades we have available for a reciprocating saw! Depending on the size of your work, this combination may actually be a better option than a chainsaw for clearing out those limbs.

They are 9″ long and can be used on branches that are 4″ in diameter. They fit into most reciprocating saws aka ‘sawzalls’ (and we recommend using a corded, though the cordless are handy.)

New Year’s Resolution – RETURN LATE TOOLS!

Between now and January 31, 2019 you can return any of your way-too-late tools and pay no overdue fines!!

We know everybody forgets sometimes, and that’s OK, but the NE Seattle Tool Library depends on members returning tools so they’re available for everyone. That’s what our community is built on – trust, responsibility, and SHARING! So, in the spirit of solving a problem that’s gotten too big to ignore, we are having an AMNESTY period for returning tools with NO OVERDUE FINES!!  Unless, of course, you want start the New Year with a special warm feeling in your heart, and then you can donate whatever works for you to feel that and we’re happy to provide that opportunity.

So bring those tools on back any time between now and January 31, PAY NOTHING OR SOMETHING YOU CHOOSE, and make all our members start the New Year feeling good about starting with a clean slate and MORE TOOLS to do projects in 2019!!
