Thanks, Edde!

For a few weeks now, Edde Mendes has been volunteering with the Tool Library to repair our broken tools.  He comes in at least once a week (and sometimes several times a week) and slaves away with virtually no recognition.  But he’s been helping tremendously and we’re so, so grateful.

So the next time you borrow a power tool, and it runs properly, thank Edde.

(And if it doesn’t work quite right?  Then please consider joining our Tool Committee by emailing Robert at  We could always use an extra hand.)
