Things we'd love to have. Care to Donate something to us?

Basic guidelines:

  • If it's bigger than a desktop PC, ask first. Space is limited.
  • We really only have good access to 120V power, and limited access to 240V (the item would have to be portable/cartable), so big 3-phase tools are generally not possible unless you're covering the 3-phase installation (building has 208V 3-phase, but no accessible outlets to it).
  • We don't want anything from the Do Not Want List.
  • We have more little DC & stepper motors than we know what to do with. We don't have room for your non-functional inkjet printer.

Big items:

  • Laser Cutter/Engraver
  • Rolling Tool Chests
  • Manual Mill (benchtop preferable to floor-standing at the moment, 120V only)
  • Metal Lathe larger than the Taig Micro Lathe we have now. 120V
  • Modern computers (nothing older than three years, please)
    • Linux & WebGL-compatible video cards Highly Preferred
  • Standalone vertical band saw. Benchtop preferred.
  • Standalone belt sander or Belt/Disc Sander combo
  • Plasma cutter
  • Sheet Metal Brake/Bender

Smaller Items:

  • USB Microscope
  • Cordless Tools & Batteries - preferably systems we already have if it's Ni-Cd, but Ryobi 18V would be pretty cool as well, given it's multi-chemistry and supported for the last 20 years or so…
  • A decent modern corded drill
  • A laser printer in good working condition.
  • 1/4“ and 1/8” shank endmills. Any cutting shape/size.
  • Tool bits in general (dremel, 1/4“ lathe bits for the Taig, drills, etc.)
  • Angle Grinders (we have one on hand, more would be nice)
  • angle grinder discs (4-1/2”)- any kind
  • Die Grinder, or any other Air Tools we don't already have.
  • Wood Chisels
  • Hot plate suitable for reflow soldering?
  • Table Saw Blade (10“, I'm pretty sure)


  • Licensed Electrician who has worked in Shaker Heights before?
