I take it you never found one of these?

I don't have one, I'm also looking to rent - just curious if you had any luck or not.

One guy replied, but the deposit was too much for me to handle right now. The deposit was fair, I just couldn't afford it.

I borrowed a tool from Auto Zone a few days ago. It was a no-charge loaner program. The store charged a $63 deposit to my credit card when I got the tool, and put a $63 credit on my card when I returned it. There was nothing out of pocket.

Unfortunately, AutoZone doesn't carry this particular tool. Thanks, though.

Any luck getting a hold of this guy? Got a new IP I'm itching to install, but I don't want to spend >$500 (!) on a new RIV sensor (assuming they're even still available).

I am also looking to rent an A/B timing light to check the timing on my 1991 JDM om603 that I recently got running. Thanks for any one who can help.

How can this be worked out? The tool is valued at over 550$ at this point. I am in a conundrum. The renter has to trust me by giving me the deposit. Unfortunately it is so high that very few are willing to go the that route. The same is true for the me, who owns the tool. If i loose the tool and dont have full value as a deposit then I am out. Does anyone wish to pickup and borrow in town here? That is fine. I still want the deposit if it leaves my driveway. I do trust, as well, I need to be sure.
I am considering selling the tool after another bit of work on the 300d . Also I may try and barter it with an indy local to me for some work on the SL.

I own the tool and I'm in the same conundrum. I'm willing to be flexible and accept paypal transfers, venmo, etc. so people can fund the deposit however they want, but...

At the end of the day, I'm sending $600 in the mail to a stranger and hoping it comes back in good condition or drama ensues.

I'd take credit cards but they charge more and I don't feel as assured that the transaction won't have hiccups.

I'm happy to accept that most people here are honest and cool but I've been burned once too many times to want to stress over it.

It's in my garage and I don't need it. NorCal
