I'm with Dinah. You can borrow/use anything with a little persuasion. But don't change the radio station. I've had that radio for 24 years now, and last time I changed it, it took me 2 weeks to get it tuned back in.

I no longer lend my silk sponges and chamois strips not since the day someone I lent them to could not find them. But I didn't know that until several days later. I had to go feel around in the large rubbermaid clay reclamation bin after dozens of folks threw their slop and failed pots in the bin. I had to go in deep down to see if they were there; they were.

Yes, and then when they go through the pug mill to be rewedged into the throwing clay-what a mess they make for the thrower!

I guess I would lend most of my tools to someone I knew who would take care of them if they were kept nearby, but if I am going to an open studio environment the good ones stay home. Some are expensive, others are just shaped right and do a great job, some are home made ... if it cannot be replaced, keep em close!
