I find this mroally very wrong. I can't believe yor tool shops offer a
free lending service for tools, I know ours don't. It's one thing to take
the unit to the shop to find what tool will remove the screws (I've done
that many times when I've wanted something obscure), but once you've
found the right tool you should darn well buy it.

Ditto for books, actually. I have no problem with looking at books in the
bookshop to find which one contains the information I need, but when I've
found said book I buy it. I don't make notes in a pocket notebook so as
not to have to buy the book (I do, of course, do that in public
libraries, but that's what libraries are for).
