RML is a cash-strapped non-profit CIC and the cost of running a makerspace can be considerable. Please help us out by donating money or equipment. Below is a bit more context about what we're looking for to continue offering services to the community.

Introduction (Why we want stuff)

RML is a community workshop that consumes goods from time to time and naturally requires things from time to time to work optimally. This is a list of desired/needed items in various categories for members or outside organisations to consider donating to the space. Got something that you think we might use that's not on here? Please let us know!

Woodscooter says: "I think the Lab could do with some permanent items, just to make things run more easily. For instance, there's already a soldering iron, a 12v power supply and a network switch available. We have some functioning desktop computers and a printer. Here's a wish list of additional items that would be great for the space. Whatever can't be donated, we can go out and buy."

Please add your own suggestions, or comment any way you want.

Please tick items when received rather than delete them. Please use  ? if you are unsure.
