The Tool Acquisition Committee (TAC) was formed to organize the acquisition and disposal of the various tools available at the Hackerspace.
We will maintain a list of all the equipment desired by the members and attempt to obtain them by whatever means available, by equipment loan, donation, or purchase.
A Google spreadsheet is posted here with the latest information. If you need a tool, by all means, add it, it's open for editing. Note there are columns for desired specs and suggested purchasing locations or links to product pages. Please don't delete or shuffle things around though.
As of April 2012 we switched to a $500/mo budget under Matt Mancuso and Danny Miller, and a more aggressive purchasing scheme. We've added dozens of small items (most of which are line-items now listed as struck on the spreadsheet) and a glorious 15-in Craftsman floor drill press which was gotten from Craigslist for all of $95. Yay capital equipment for nearly free!
If you have requests or items to offer, contact Matt or Danny.
There was a separate $500 budget created for a set of soldering stations for teaching, which was somewhat in limbo after the exit of the member who drove it. The budget was brought back up in May 2012 and about $300 used to purchase 3x Hakko soldering stations and diagonal cutters, about $200 remains in it for the purchase of soldering stuff.
