Tool Rental Master Member Thread

Greetings to all:
Hi...
I've decided to edit the tool rental thread... most are not reading the info, and they are making replies to the original thread instead of starting new listings, or sending me a PM...
STOP IT!!!

send me a PM if you have a tool to rent.
if you have a need for a tool NOT IN THE LIST, make a NEW ENTRY and start your own thread looking for the tool!


As you all know, there are many tools for these vehicles that you only need one time. So, buying them is a costly proposition and doesn't make economic sense.

So, we have established a tool rental program whereby members can rent a tool from other members utilizing the board as the source for the desired. tool.



If you wish to place a tool on the list for rent, please send me a PM with the name of the tool and the cost of the rental. I will put it in this post.



If you would like to use a tool NOT on the list, make a new thread with WTR Tool Name as a title



Please do not post with additional tools. Send them to me via PM and I will add them to the list, so that we have one continuous list.
Thank you!



Home Made Special Tools, This is where members can share how they made special tools
Home Made Special Tools, This is where members can share how they made special tools

as some members can make their own tools.

Good job, Brian.

How about a wish list and perhaps a list of tools that folks are willing to lend in the confines of their driveway?

I'd love to find someone who will share an IP A-B timing light or a dynamic tester. Hopefully someone close to me has one I can come over and use.

The terms of the rental are between lessor and lessee. If someone has such a tool and will rent it in the confines of their driveway, that's fine.

I'll add it to the list and the members can work it out between themselves.

I'd sure like to rent the RIV tool to set timing on the 603. It would guarantee accuracy and save me immense grief with it. Maybe I'll try to buy one myself and rent it out, if nobody has one available.

Make that 3 for the timing light. How about someone with a compression guage?

Thanks
David

I stumbled on to one of these yesterday at a tool warehouse clearance.. I paid $30
64$ doesn't seem so bad...made in USA too

http://shop.store.yahoo.com/hm-performance/dicote.html

For most Diesel trucks & cars.
Supplied w/three popular adapter numbers. ( Mercedes adapter included.. I confirmed before I bought)
Has an easy to read 2-1/2" diameter gauge head.
Flex hose w/swivel head which eliminates the need to remove auxillary equipment such as power brakes, steering, air conditioning, & manifold.
Includes quick side release valve to reset gauge without removal of adapter.

Gauge Range: 0-1000 lbs psi (0-70 kg psi)

I'll delete this if needed..for the sticky program

That would be perfect for the rental program.

Care to put it in??

Most members need a compression test once in their lives.

bennet, I'd be interested in the guage. Right now though I have a big suspension project just getting under way on my dad's 300E plus I have to get my oil pan on the engine. I really miss my car.

Thanks
David

I need the tool to remove the rear wheel bearing retainer nut in '79 300SD.

Its the round socket wrench with four fingers that fit in the recesses of the bearing retainer nut to screw the retainer nut in or out.

If no one has one, I'll buy one and put in the rental pool.

I don't mind a personal check. But, I suppose Paypal would also be acceptable. However, you must realize that Paypal will get a percentage of the entire deposit, not just a percentage of the rental. Then, when the deposit is returned, they get the almost the same amount going the other way.

It can add up to some money.

What would Paypal take for the spring compressor? $230.00 one way. $200.00 the other way??

ok

We have a nice compression tester and a leakdown tester available for rent or in exchange for letting us borrow your tool that we need.

I don't really have any special tools that I can think of but I do have the large allen wrench for removing the water plug to install a bock heater on a 617. Cost me like $13? I'd rent it out pretty much for the cost of shipping each way. I will soon be buying a flywheel lock tool for the 60x engines. Unless of course someone here already has one? It holds the flywheel so the front crank seal can be replaced.

Thanks
David

This would be the case if the tool owner were to return the deposit by using the "send money" option. However, PayPal also has a "refund" option (either full or partial). From their web site:

Quote:
If you send a full refund using the Refund link within 60 days of receiving the payment, PayPal will refund the fees charged for the transaction. If you send a partial refund, the percentage of fees refunded will match the percentage of the original transaction refunded.
