From Dallas Makerspace
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a (non-comprehensive) list of tools at the Dallas Makerspace. This list will help us keep track of information about the tools, their general status (through this link), and who donated/loaned it.

Completion of a training class, or verification of equivalent experience by a qualified member, is required to use some of the tools available at Dallas Makerspace. If a tool in the list below is marked as requiring a class, you must complete a class or get approval from the committee responsible for that equipment. Many of the specialized tools at Dallas Makerspace are dangerous or easily damaged if improperly used. This could result in a really bad day for everyone, and/or expensive repairs. Some of the tools below are NOT marked as requiring a class, but are still dangerous and may require a class soon. If you are unsure how to safely operate a piece of equipment, DO NOT believe in yourself: find someone who knows how to use the equipment and ask for help.

If you are looking for a training class, keep an eye on the Dallas Makerspace Talk Forum and the DMS Events Calendar. If no class is scheduled, create one by asking the mailing list for any other potential students and members willing to teach the class.
