Equipment Wanted

At the second meeting it was agreed upon to make a list of tools and equipment needed and wanted for the Makerspace. The list is split into two groups, high priority and future wishlist.

To start I've created a list based on previous lists from other Makerspaces.

Remember this is a wiki and you can add any other equipment you would like to see at the space to this list.

If you have things on this list you would like to donate or loan, it would be greatly appreciated by the whole group, please just make a note in the space provided at the bottom. :)
