Actually, the charging for use of one's own tools is common in many fields of endeavor.

For instance, in the TV/Movie industry, if you are a union carpenter you are expected to charge kit-rental for any of your own personal tools you provide.

I'm with you John. I also think the engineer gear rental days will be fading, at least on the rock side of things...

These days it's hard to get rental for gear,unless your doing big budget stuff.I usually don't charge for what I bring to the party, it just makes my job easier. There is a circle of other engineers that I know and if they need something I've got, they try to get a rental for it. Also some of the studios that I work for will rent stuff that I have. We try to rent locally, it makes everyone happy. The client gets what they and the person doing the renting gets his cut as well. I make up some of my outlay that way. It works pretty well.
