Small tool repair shop - Page 2

Frequently, they’re able to repair a tool without having to order new parts. Since their labor is free, it means a $400 electric impact wrench or a $300 grinder is repaired without costs to the state. The shop only charges for the costs of replacement parts and shipping. While the state benefits from putting the damaged tools back into operation, the inmates learn a valuable trade they can use when released.
