To not let ndn use my new drill because it's still in the box

I purchased a new drill, I'm looking forward to using it but I have not had a chance yet so it's still in the box.
Aibu to lie and tell my ndn I don't have a drill because I want to use it first? Obviously I didn't tell them when I purchased the drill, they just wondered if I had one.

I wouldn't lend it. I have a big collection of power tools, gardening tools and woodwork equipment and gradually realised a few friends began to think I was running a lending library and that some people were happy to return equipment dirty or worn. A lot of my friends are wealthy they just don't want to spend on boring stuff.
I have began saying no or saying yes but with conditions.
Ie you can borrow my electric saw but you have to buy your own blades.
I still lend things lots more than I borrow but I only lend if I actually want to.
