Please be aware that this can only be a "best guess" as equipment may break at any time.

  • Red = not working
  • Orange = see notes
  • Green = fully working

"Red category" equipment requires induction training before you can use it; "Orange category" items such as Vinyl Cutter and TShirt press may be used having read the manual, and training is available -- take advantage of it or ask for help if you are at all unsure. (Note: Categories should not be confused with equipment status in the table below)
