These are tools and supplies available to Bloominglabs members. Pretty much all of the bench-top and larger tools are owned by members and kept in the space for use by other members. If you are unsure of how to use a tool or want to learn more please grab someone and we'll guide you in the right direction. General safety documentation for common power tools is kept in the black cabinet in the shop area (along with MSDS sheets). Also note that this page is generally out of date, if you are interested in something specific and don't see it here ask us about it.
