Heavy Tool Room

The place for using tools that are not too dusty. (Take really dusty tools outside)

Area Host

Your area host is Christopher Hall. Please see him with any questions or information about this area.

Area Rules

The following rules apply to activities in the toolroom

  1. Clean up after yourself. This especially includes getting rid of swarf/sawdust
  2. Do not use a tool unless you know how to use it. Seek help if you need it.
  3. Everything on the shelves, or on the drill bit cabinet is for general use. This includes drill bits, fasteners and tools. If you have stuff in there that you don't want people using, you need to store it someplace else
  4. The tool room is not a place for materials storage. All materials will be removed (or put in the Swarfomat room if they look swarfable)
  5. All Dremel-related items go under the main workbench. Put them back when you're done.
  6. The large horizontal cabinet is for project storage. You can store small amounts of stuff in here for a limited time. Make sure you attach a yellow slip. If you have number of loose items, put them in a container and attach a slip. There are some containers with slips attached - these are for your use. I'll start the storage time limit at 3 months, and adjust depending on how quickly that cupboard fills up.
  7. For the most part, red tickets will not be issued. Instead, anything left out will be assumed to be a donation to space and stored on the shelves for general use. You have exactly as long as it takes for someone else to find it and use it to rescue it.

A fairly large selection of Dremel tools is kept under the main workbench.


A fairly wide variety. Larger ones are stored on a board near the entrance, smaller ones will be in a drawer in the Machine Room.


Screws, nails, nuts, bolts and miscellaneous small items are either being stored in a drawer in the machine room, or will be. This is a work in progress.

Project Space

The horizontal cupboard is now available as project storage. Please keep your use to a minimum and yellow ticket all items. Items without a ticket will either be red-ticketed or relocated for general use. The Artifactory thanks you for your donation.
