AutoZone, an automobile parts place around the US, offer free tool rental
(and they also sell tools if you want to buy them). You give them a
deposit when you pick up the tool, and they give you back 100% of it
when you bring back the tool. Of course, I'm sure they wouldn't give
you the whole/any of the deposit back if you broke the tool before
bringing it back.
