AZ and I have discussed this and I have agreed to help monitor the Tool Loaner Program.
I like the original requirements of the program (with a couple minor changes) and would appreciate any input that others may have to help make the program beneficial to all.
Here are the requirements:
Requirements to be a Borrower:
1. 50 posts
, at least 1 being within the last month.
2. Member of forum at least for 6 months
3. No P. O. boxes for address
. Should be able to find it with at least 1 online mapping site.
4. Your current working phone number, can be land line or cell.
5. Pay shipping to the next Borrower or back to the person that sent it to you, however instructed.
1. No more than 5 day shipping used
2. USPS preferred
, Priority shipping, flat rate box.
3. Tracking number Must be provided
4. Notify jobe05
via PM that tool(s) have been shipped to include tracking number.
General guidelines and instructions.
will maintain the list and make all adjustments to it, you will not be required to update the list on your own.
When you are ready to ship to the next person you need to PM me that it is available. I will PM you back the name and address to ship it to next. My return PM may take a day or 2 as first I'll be verifying with the next person on the list by phone that they are ready to use it. If you are going to tie it up for more than 2 weeks and some one else is ready for it then adjustments may be made to your position on the list. This is to ensure the least amount of turn around time for each person needing it.
If it has been more than 1 1/2 weeks since the tool was shipped and you haven't received it then contact me ASAP! so I can start tracking it down and get the reserve unit sent out if available.
So far, the specialty tools that I have are as follows:
Steering head socket for GL1500 and GL1800. May fit other years as well.
Carb Sync Tool with hoses and conections:
Available if needed, 1/2" Torque Wrench:
And I will be ordering a Spring Compression tool for the rear shock on the 1800's. This will not be available till Oct 15th 2015.
Please note that these are not forum owned tools, these are my personal tools that like you, I will rarely use so loaning them out to people with the same goals and ambitions seems like the right thing to do. If you have Goldwing related, job specific tools that you would be willing to put up on loan to other members, your welcome to add your tools to the list, and they will be tracked so you will always know where they are at at any given time.
I appreciate everyones cooperation in making the Tool Loaner program a beneficial part of being a forum member.
