Equipment Pages

Some people call Equipment - "Tools" . Both terms are acceptable

Definition of Equipment

Equipment most commonly refers to a set of tools or other objects commonly used to achieve a particular objective. Different jobs require different kinds of equipment.

Equipment Wish List

Look on this page for wanted equipment. If you have something to collocate or donate, use the existing entries to mark your item(s).

After donating or collocating a complex item, add an item page to track maintenance and other useful information. Use an existing item page as an example. Duct tape doesn't need an item page, a laser cutter does.
