Tools

Here is a list of our available tools for open shop use. You can ask a volunteer to retrieve them for you and to demonstrate their use. You also are provided a tool bag of basic wrenches when you check in for the day.

If you do bring your own tools, we URGE you to check them in with the greeter. We are not responsible for lost or stolen personal tools.

We do not loan our tools out for use outside of the shop.
