FamiLAB Tools and their Uses
The lab has many tools available in it; that is one mark of a good hackerspace. Tools enable people to create, repair, and learn. Some of our tools are quite expensive, or they are specialized such that most people do not own one. They are here to help people create things and bring ideas to life, where they may not have been able to without these tools. The advantage of having them in a group is to lower the cost, and allow greater numbers of people access to these shared tools.
Some tools at the lab are donated and are lab property, but there are others which are merely on loan from a member. Either way, they should be treated with the same respect as if they were your close friend's.
Tools are listed here for a reason, they usually are one or more of the following:
- Difficult to operate properly (and/or easy to break)
- Rare, and therefore not much about them is commonly known
This list is here to help members learn more about these items, and to contact the appropriate members if they wish to use/learn more about the tools.
