Thanks for starting this off. I still need a proper think about things we need, and remember to write them down too (been little chaotic lately, and tools are all distributed/hidden all over the place currently)
Here is a brief commentary on what was included above
Screwdrivers - sure, but what specs are we needing? We have quite a large collection of screwdrivers, a few in small sets (3 philips and 3 slotted, descending sizes). Would be nice to have a simple range (poxi, ph and slotted) though. We have loads of slot in hex heads, but not sure on people’s opinions on them (or if we have many handles for them)
T handle things : We have some, but the one I used is naff (shaft doesn’t seem to be secured inside the rubber handle). Wouldn’t that normal ones be enough, and just use the insert/slot in hex heads? Although, they can be fiddly I suppose (the bits falling out of the holder).
Spanners : Yes we need a full set. Missing sizes in our current set
Hammer : We already have 3/4 hammers in the space? is there anything particularly bad about them?
Pliers and grips : I noticed we have a relatively new big collection of these already! they are in a toolbox (no idea if they are member owned ones tho)
Handsaws that are a single piece, yes. Saws with replaceable blades… isn’t it better to just find the replacement blades instead of replacing the whole unit? From memory, we already have a largevhacksaw with metal cutting teeth, quite the collection of small hacksaws too. Not sure about a deep cut/fret one though.
Files : Someone already bought a pack of metal files like this already.
I shared this amazon list a very long time ago (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/registry/wishlist/23NCCBI0976ZS/ref=cm_wl_list_o_2?) for this purpose. A little out dated now, but I asked people to let me know if they could add items to it, but don’t think anyone got back to me. Wanted to see if you could collaborate on a single wishlist (it is marked as ‘shared’, )
A decent set of chisels and planes would be a great addition though. Also some more special wood turning chisels for the lathe (saw some laying around the other day, but wasn’t sure if they were the original standard ones that come with it)
A ginder/sharpening station would also be a big plus for keeping tools sharp and extending their life (also safer to use sharp tools than blunt ones)
I should add a lot more on this list, but my brain is a little melted right now
