Using our Equipment

There is a large and growing variety of equipment and tools; some are safe to use, some can be dangerous or are expensive and need training before use. We have divided all the tools below into Tool Classes. Make sure you understand which class a tool is in before you attempt to use it, and read the associated wiki page.

Consumables for some equipment can be used and paid for using the Online payment system.

The right tool for the job has some notes on what tools to use for various tasks.

Smaller equipment is listed on the Things and stuff page.

Equipment status for the larger items is available here.

If you want to create a new page for equipment, follow the new equipment template.
