    Hmm...just a thought...you know what would be nice, WRT tools.... if you had a loaner program for the people who bought things that would benefit from the 'specialty' tool(s).

    The customer would be charged the price of the tool up front, if they chose to take advantage of the program. Returns would be at customer expense for shipping (you could even build that into the order, and include a call tag for the customer.)

    Once it's returned (within a specified timeframe - ?), the customer gets a credit adjustment on their payment vehicle. If they don't, or they break the tool, etc. - then they forfeit the credit (and can keep the tool.)

    Yes, many retail stores have loaner programs, but...
    - Some folks live far from a store that loans tools
    - Where RA could differentiate themselves is the 'real' specialty stuff - the S-K type of tools that you wouldn't get at the retail shops, and very few people acquire because of the cost & the fact that they may never use it again.
