This page contains something to do. You can help us out by doing it and then editing this page to let us know it's been done.
Other places you can look for things to do include:

This is stuff we would like to have in our space. If you want to donate a tool see Donations. Monetary contributions however big or small are also very welcome! If you want to donate towards a tool/want to start a fundraiser for one please contact our COO.


  • We have most everything we could want/need for now.


Electronic Tools

  • Multimeters
    • Bench meters with 4 wire sensing would be nice
  • Adjustable power supplies. Digital ones would be amazing!
  • Signal generator (again, digital would be awesome)

Electronic Parts

  • Assorted electronic components (Pots, diodes, you name it)
  • Crimp on wire connectors


  • We are always looking to upgrade our computers! Most tools are still run with computers that have Pentium 4s in them. Not the best for current day software.
  • We will however take old computers and dispose of them for you. (No ancient laptops, no CRTs. Towers and servers only)

Wood Working


  • Transfer punch set
  • palm sander
  • disc/belt sander combo
  • Pneumatic tools
    • We have a cut off wheel and a cheap die grinder, plus some random attachments like a tire stem adapter and some random nozzles)
  • Wood lathe
  • Clamps
    • F Clamps
    • Larger C clamps (we have three 1", two 1.5", two 2", and two 3")
  • Maybe:
    • Pressure washer
    • Hot-wire cutter
  • Saw horses. Preferably fold-able.


  • Dust collection system
  • Ear protection (over the ear)

Metal Working

  • Knowledge on how to do metal working
  • Materials /always/ welcome
  • File set
  • Decent handheld grinder
  • oxy/acetylene torch
  • Metal lathe!
  • Anvil
  • tap and die set (this would be amazingly useful)
  • Cutting/tapping oil
  • End mills
  • Foundry or Forge setup
  • Greensand casting bins
  • We don't have much metal working stuff down here besides large, well known items. If you have some metal working tools to donate and don't know if we already have some of the stuff here... we probably don't. If you have done metal working please suggest items we may need!


  • Face shield
  • Ear protection (over the ear)

Other Work Areas


  • We have very little art stuff! Anything accepted!


  • Vacu-forming table
  • Large-scale vinyl/sign printer
  • 4-color Screen-printing rig
  • Lift
  • fume hood
  • autoklave
  • large digital scale (200lbs+, maybe .1lbs resolution?)


  • Nothing


  • Several tool chests!! We are drastically in need of storage for our tools as we have outgrown our pegboards.

General Space Wants and Needs


  • None


  • Games (board or digital)


  • Posters
  • Plants would be nice to keep the air a bit cleaner and liven up the space a bit
