*** It is not that the items are valuable, but that there are so many different types of each component that it is currently difficult to keep track of what we specifically do and do not have, and it is frustrating when a particular component that should be available is not.  An efficient stock keeping system could ensure that component types are reordered in good time, and that is what I am aiming to achieve.  [[User:Robert|Robert]] 20:08, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

  • Breadboard (any size/shape)
  • Female-female jump leads for electronics projects and buspirates
  • A compass (ideally a beam compass) - I have a spare beam compass. If whoever wanted this confirms it's still wanted, I'll bring it. --Artag 20:56, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

    • A £12 chinese cheepy LCR meter would be just as much use for anything anyone is likely to use it for at hackspace. Linked unit is too expensive for what it does. User:Ajp
  • Chainsaw blade for angle grinder Lancelot 22 teeth - SEI-KALO-0022, Angle grinder
  • Arduinos
  • Larger whiteboard (how big could we accomodate). Alternatively a blackboard might be more "green". Purchased 28-03-11 PaulR
  • Bulk purchase of some smaller fixings (socket cap screws etc.). Cheaper in the long run and more choice compared to standard DIY assortments. [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30]
    • I've created a suggested socket-cap order from Fix8. Having just ordered similar stuff from ModelFixings at a far greater per unit cost, I'd be pleased to see such items stocked in the space. The problem with the traditional DIY packs is that the range is limited, and while the variety per pack is ok, the individual quantities are small. So who orders this stuff? --Teabot 20:36, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
    • Working on deciding what we want to stock and developing a good stock-keeping system, may be a while though. Robert 15:52, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
    • Is it worth doing stock-keeping for really low-value items? I'm thinking the value of our time would be more than the cost of the item. (I can see the value of a stock-keeping system for larger items). Suggestion: we add this kind of small item to the Inventory and keep track of them on a per-pack basis. AndyE 16:54, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
    • In a fit of wild enthusiasm I've gone ahead and done that and put it here. AndyE 17:09, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
      • It is not that the items are valuable, but that there are so many different types of each component that it is currently difficult to keep track of what we specifically do and do not have, and it is frustrating when a particular component that should be available is not. An efficient stock keeping system could ensure that component types are reordered in good time, and that is what I am aiming to achieve. Robert 20:08, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
      • We can probably just rely on people complaining :-)

Psychicwishlist (offered)

Got something to donate that isn't yet in the wishlist? Offer it here or on IRC, see if it's needed...
  • Is there room for an industrial sewing machine - probably in the dirty room or the lobby ? I see them come up from time to time and think they'd be useful for tougher projects than a domestic machine can handle (e.g. sewing webbing straps etc.). They're no bigger than a domestic one, but will have a stronger mechanism, very few fancy features, and will usually be mounted in a worktable about 800x500mm.

    • The biohackers would love these, email the list about them. --jonty
  • Would a smallish Table Saw come in handy, <1m^2 footprint, takes (I think) 10inch blades? --BytePilot
