Drop-off Tools between 10-11am
Swap will start precisely at 11am


Anyone is welcome as are any of your friends, relatives, or neighbors -- it is FREE -- feel free to forward on this invitation


Old Police station lot at Sligo and Grove ( 801 Sligo Ave)


Community Forklift will be tabling and any extra tools after the swap will be donated to them.

Silver Spring Urban District/Parking Division


starting at 10am sign-in and bring your tools for sorting by category (plumbing, garden, painting, carpentry, etc.) -- then the swap starts promptly at 11:00am -- do not be late (the swap goes fast and can be over in a matter of minutes!)

How: be prepared to BRIEFLY introduce yourself and describe your tool swap offerings

anyone who brings tools can select tools -- we will do so in structured selection rounds

if tools are left after that, than those who didn't bring tools may select something

any leftovers after that are donated to Community Forklift

BRING: Tools = anything you can buy at a hardware store that assists in doing a task

What NOT to bring: supplies and other materials (for ex. paint brush is fine but do not bring paint, squeegee but not window cleaner, hammer but not wood, shovel but not soil, etc. )
