This is an old revision of the document!

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.

For convenience, the tools and equipment are grouped into

  • classic maker items, e.g. 3D printers, engravers
  • electronic test equipment, e.g. PSUs, scopes and probes, signal generators
  • electronic manufacturing equipment, e.g. soldering irons, spotwelder
  • biohacking
  • standard computer printers and plotters
  • everything else, e.g. thermal camera

We only occupy one half of G10. The other half of the room belongs to Nick Marshall and as such is out of bounds for Hackspace members for this reason. Equipment, tables, and tools etc in this area are not covered by our rules, induction procedures and insurance. Some members have made personal arrangements with Nic to use his tools, however this is the exception, not the rule. Also please be conscious of any activity you are engaged with that may interfere or damage anything in Nic's area.

This is a list of items that have since been removed from the Hackspace. This is kept for historical reasons, so information pages are still accessible.

A more-or-less scale plan of the hackspace is as follows (10cm = 1m): (compiled by David W and Jon, June 2012 after acquisition of the architects' space)

The first page is just the space itself; the second page has some of the furniture, but we didn't measure how big much of it was!
