BORA Tool, a manufacturer of tools, woodworking and workshop accessories, is partnering with the Carhartt Workshop’s free tool lending program to supply the BORA® product line of tools to the Detroit community.

The partnership between the two Detroit area-based companies includes a wide range of BORA tools that will expand the Carhartt Workshop’s tool library and help the community tackle additional projects while delivering professional results, all free of charge, said the company.

“BORA has always been about people – getting people the right tools to simplify their tasks and help complete their work more easily, while at the same time helping people increase their productivity and expand their capabilities,” said Mike Ursell, president and founder at BORA Tool.

BORA products available for free rental include:

  • 100" NGX Saw Guide System
  • MiteriX
  • Quickcut™
  • Portable Folding Miter Saw Stand
  • Centipede 2' x 4' Work Stand
  • Centipede 4' x 6' Work Stand
  • Centipede 4' x 8' Work Stand
  • Centipede Workbench Tabletop with Carry Bag
  • Pedestal Roller
  • Speedhorse XT.

“Supplying free tools for the community to access through the Carhartt Workshop allows us to carry on this mission right here in our own backyard. We look forward to being a part of this important community initiative and participating in other opportunities the workshop has to offer,” said Ursell.

The Carhartt Workshop is a collaborative community space built by the original Carhartt® workwear company, said Bora. All Workshop services are free to the community.

“We greatly appreciate BORA Tool’s support of the Carhartt Workshop, giving us the opportunity to make our rental program more robust for local residents,” said Susie Craft, community partnerships manager at Carhartt.

The Workshop provides access to the tools and equipment needed to complete DIY projects, and community spaces to host meetings, hold training sessions, and teach workshops.

“As a family-owned business ourselves, we know how important it is to make a difference in the community in which we serve and we’re grateful to partner with like-minded companies like BORA,” said Craft.
