SE Portland Tool Library
Like the public library... but for tools and seeds.
SEPTL is a free community resource that provides home and business owners, and tenants, with hand and power tools they need to perform simple maintenance, tend to yards and gardens, and build awesome projects – while along the way meeting and sharing with neighbors.
