Here you can find links to all of our pages about "machines". Our definition of "machines" includes pretty much all electric devices and big or small power tools.

Tools, on the other hand, are worked by hand or have only weak batteries, e.g. to power a display or tiny printer.

Most machines are potentially dangerous! Make sure you secure it against accidental starting whenever you work on its parts, e.g. when you want to change a circular saw blade. Also, see if the action you're planning is possible before turning on the motor (check for obstacles, test movement of sliding parts etc). We document specific dangers and precautions in our introductions.


As the list grows we may start subcategories as well, e.g. for machines from the same manufacturer and/or running on the same kind of battery pack.

If that is too confusing and you would rather look through the entire list of the CoMakingSpace's equipment, please head over to the supercategory "Hardware".
