Tournevie is non-profit tool library operating from the building of MicroMarché in the heart of Brussels. Its concept can be compared to that of a traditional library: in exchange for a small annual membership fee, you get unlimited access to a wide range of quality tools. Regular membership is only 20 euros, and in turn you get to use the entire inventory for a year. Just like the Instrumentheek, Tournevie is an interesting alternative to traditional lease or sales models. Together with iFixit, the Wikipedia for repair, Tournevie also organizes repair workshops to encourage consumers to take better care of their tools.
