If you want the space to buy something, add it to the list. If you need it urgently you should probably mail the list and prod people. If it's expensive, you may be able to get other interested users to pledge support.


If you can, add an amazon link or equivalent please!

  • Make Magazine + back issues
    • I have some back issues that I can donate. --Teabot 10:06, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

    • I also have a copy that I am happy to leave in a drier space. --Teabot 10:06, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
    • We have a drier space now? -- Ciarán
    • I have a nice new copy which really needs to be used more: some solder splashes and burns etc. I will bring it in today.My copy is sitting on top of the pile of books in the main room. --samthetechie 12:37, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Feeling generous? Buy us one of these and drop it into the space.

Over £500

See the Components page.


Things we don't need (we have to conserve space so thanks for the offer, but no thanks).

  • Old desktop PCs and CRT monitors (but if it's something special, please ask)


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.
