When working in a machine shop or work space the right tools are a necessity. Though the shops provide students with the basic tools listed below some may want to purchase their own tools and equipment. If you are interested in purchasing your own equipment and do not know where to start looking, please see the bellow guide. These are suggested items at a reasonable economical price point, all from the same location. Most similar tools from other locations may do for your needs.
Safety Goggles are mandatory in all workspaces! You can purchase them at the store indicated below or any location of your choosing. They must be CSA approved or similar standard. In addition, though it is not mandatory in some cases you may want to wear a lab coat to protect your clothing from dirt’s and oils in some applications. Both these items can also be purchased from most first year lab spaces in the science department.
Most projects require some form of measurement to ensure the fabricated parts are to an expected tolerance. These measuring tools seen bellow can be useful for most basic applications of inspection and measurement in most shops. Depending on the project and your individual needs you may wish to look in to other items.
