Page links in red in the table below mean we haven't written any information about this thing on the Wiki yet. If you can contribute, please do so!

Equipment pages should indicate where the thing is to be found, who to ask for induction training if it's something that could hurt the user (or that could be easily damaged), a list of inducted people who might be asked for help by new users, and any pertinent safety tips. For extra points, specifications of the thing (what size of work it can do, etc), links to manuals/tutorials, and so on can be included for reference!

If you would like something not on this list, please see Equipment Wanted.
