Tools and equipment

question A list of tools in this area with wiki pages is available here: Tools and Equipment in Metalworking Downstairs


Important notes

Tools in this area can have a steep learning curve. Please don't hesitate to post on the Google Group or Slack channels if you require assistance.


The only tool within this area where personal protective equipment is advised is the CNC Mill. When operating this tool, please be aware of those working around you and encourage safe working practices. I.e. Remove tripping hazards from the gangways around the machine.


question This area does not require booking and can not be booked.

Materials and consumables

There are occasionally spools of filament, that are free to use, on the desk by the 3D Printer. Check any material for Do Not Hack labels before using it. If it is not labeled, it is ok to use.

Cleaning and maintenance

Vac kept next to corridor wall.

Always leave the area as you would like to find it. Build time into your schedule for cleaning up. It's important that this area must remain clean due to its close proximity to the Electronics Area.

There is usually a hoover available in the CNC Area. If there is no hoover in the immediate vicinity check in the Blue Room or bring one down from the Infrastructure Storage Area in the Toilets upstairs.

Desks should be kept clear of debris.

Once a month the tools are checked and maintenance carried out as required. There is normally a small bottle of 3-in-1 Oil available for lubricating the slide ways of machines as needed.

Problems and issues

question If there is a problem in the CNC Area contact the 3D Printing team in the first instance. If a tool is broken or damaged report it to the relevant team listed on the Tool's wiki page.
