Below is a list of tools we would like to either buy or be donated to the hackspace.

Feel free to add to this list, and make sure you vote on what you want - just +1 to the priority column. This is on honour, so please don't +100 or anything silly, and put what you are voting on in the Summary box on the edit screen!

Disclaimer. *Example links point to further information about the type of item in the list. They do not indicate intent to purchase specific makes / models nor from the particular sources used, nor that the costs indicated relate to that source.

You can sort the list using the buttons on the table header row.

ToDo List

  • Input estimated costs
  • Remove consumables to separate list
  • Separation by cost? Suggest under £5, under £10, £50, £100, £500 and £1k+
  • Separate by area now we're in the new space. Would make list more comprehensible, and people could start pledge drives for collections of smaller tools.
