If you bring in real contractors (1099 as opposed to a temp), the
contractors are required under IRS regs and most US states' labor laws
to provide their own tools, and if they use yours you risk being cited
for improper employment classification.

There is nothing wrong with an employer allowing employees to use
their own tools. The issue is with employers not providing employees
with required tools and expecting them to provide them at their own
expense.
