This brochure describes the "Tools for Schools" Loan Program and includes guidelines for preparation of an application for a loan of industrial manufacturing equipment from the Defense Industrial Reserve (DIR). The first section is in question-and-answer form and describes the program through which equipment from DIR may be loaned to any nonprofit educational institution or training school. The program specifies that the school must contribute materially to the national defense and that the institution must agree to provide for maintenance and to return, without expense to the government the equipment. The second section presents an application format for obtaining DIR equipment; lists types of equipment in the DIR, including metal cutting, test, welding, and metal forming equipment; and provides a sample loan agreement.
