Tools We Need
« on: May 16, 2012, 10:59:05 AM »
This is a place to list tools which would be helpful around the lab.  If you happen to be out and about and see a great deal on one of these (garage sales?) Pick it up then post it as purchased so we do not duplicate.  When acquiring tools please keep in mind these need to be durable.  Don't get the cheep plastic one because it will not last a month in the lab.  Heavy duty is the name of the game.
I am not quite sure how to keep a tool list current but it seems each new submission should include a copy of the existing list.  When a tool is acquired it should be noted on the list.  After an acquired tool has been shown on the list as acquired for several posts then it may be removed from the list.  Also it would not hurt to create sub-categories to make it a bit easier for folks to scan the list to see if a tool is on it.  With that said here is a starter list.
