Consumables are very useful generic things that we aim to keep in stock, for everyone to make reasonable light use of in their projects.

Consumables are kept on the consumables boards in the Woodshop, Metalshop (TBC), and Electronics Area (TBC). See below for a full table of what should be on each of these boards.

If you find a consumable item is running low or missing, please help out by restocking it. The Treasurer will refund you if you submit the receipt. Please make sure you buy the right items from the right supplier, or you might not get a refund.

If you are using a large proportion of our stock of any item in your project, then this is not reasonable light use, and you should buy it yourself rather than depleting the Hackspace supply.

Please don't put anything else on the consumables boards. If you have similar items of your own that you want to donate for others to use, put them in in the “Donated Hackables” area.
