Can I give other players the use of powertools via the Essentials plugin for Bukkit? Not the command (/powertool), but the ability to use an item as a powertool.

Ex: I assign the use of /spawn to a compass for PlayerA. However, he can not assign powertools to himself, he is only able to use the powertools assigned to him by other players.

Can you give us some more information? I do not understand the question. – Joe the Person Feb 26 '12 at 22:32
@fireDude67 This edit should make it clearer. – Jonny Feb 27 '12 at 1:36
Aren't the use of /powertool and the ability to make a powertool the same thing? I am confused. – fredley Feb 27 '12 at 10:01
@fredley No, I'm saying I want to give a player the ability to use a command that was assigned to an item via /powertool But however I don't want him to be ale to set powertools whenever he wants, I just want him to be able to use it at the moment I gave it to him, until I disable it. – Jonny Feb 27 '12 at 23:38

You'll need to give them the essentials.powertool permission, as documented on the Command Reference Page.

This isn't quite what I was looking for, I updated the question to make it clearer. – Jonny Feb 27 '12 at 1:35
