I have one neighbor that I will loan things to. But that's it nobody else, but he is awesome and takes better care of things then me.

That's a good one. I don't mind handing someone one of my fountain pens. Just never hand over the cap (and watch what happens if it ends up in someone's pocket.

The times I get someone asking for a chainsaw, I just show up with my saw. It's always seemed like a better idea. Even if they buy me a new chain, I don't want dirt messing up the sprocket.

That reminds me. I really need to borrow MY pressure washer back from my cousin.

Pressure washers are in demand. I know when I lent mine it was started without the water turned on, plus it came back with a tipectomy. Started with four tips, ended up with two. Some people have no clue
I don't mind spending money, I mind wasting money!

I loan my stuff out to friends and family, but wouldn't to acquaintances. If it's something that they don't know how to use I'll assist, or give a lesson ahead of time. Sometimes somebody is just in a pinch though and their saw isn't running or something.

The dissapointment in having something returned; broken, dull, damaged far out weighs the dissapointment of someone getting a "No".

I've had a pressure washer returned [by my pastor] that had been run without water flowing [I suspect] as it no longer made pressure.
Now, you'd think that a Pastor would fess up to wrecking one of your tools, but this guy was clueless that he'd done anything wrong. Do you want someone like that running your stuff?
There ARE a [very] few that I'll loan stuff out to, but not many.
