Pretty much everything that does not qualify as a machine/power tool and is (usually) not a consumable material is a "tool" and should get its own page eventually. Dangerous or complicated tools first, of course!

Documentation

To use this template, simply copy this code into your page and enter the relevant parameters:

{{ToolInfoBox
|tool name=
|image=
|synonyms=
|type=
|status=
|material=
|used with=
|location=
|access=
|tutors=
|manual=
|donation=
|similar=
}}

Most fields will only be shown when they are actually used, i.e. you can easily create more or less detailed boxes (at least name and image). Make frequent use of the "Show preview" button and it should be clear.

For example, entering the following leads to the box on the right:

{{ToolInfoBox
|tool name=Example: Scroll Saw
|image=scroll saw.JPG
|synonyms=DE: Dekupiersäge,<br>Feinschnittsäge
|type=power tool/[[:Category:Saws|saw]]
|status=functional
|access=upon introduction
|used with=[[Shop Vac|shop vac]]
|location=[[Wood Workshop|wood workshop]]
|material=[[wood]], [[Acrylic Glass|acrylic glass]], [[metal]]
|tutors=[[User:Lukas|Lukas]], [[User:Mitja|Mitja]]
|manual=
|similar=[[fretsaw]], [[bandsaw]], ''[[Laser Cutter|laser cutter]]''
}}

There are a few tool categories such as woodworking or saws - please also categorize your page to make it easier to find!
