Location

In the top drawer of the red-metal cart in the metal workshop.

This equipment is Noise Category 3: Can be used at all hours. No limits.

This equipment is safety category 6: Other equipment with no limits.

Handle with care - fragile ! Handle with care.
This is a (precision) measurement tool with exact dimensions and straightness.
That means: handle it gently, don't hammer on it or use it as a crowbar and so on.
(if you need a crowbar - these are wonderful for that!)


It is very important that if you accidentally drop it or think it may be out of line

  • either mark the tool very clearly...
  • or report this to the mailing list...

...so that your fellow makers do not ruin their work.
