The Vancouver Hack Space is fortunate to have a vast collection of tools available for use by members and visitors. Almost all of our tools have been donated by members and individuals to use at VHS, and in general there are no restrictions on who has or does not have the availability to use them. However, many of the tools can be dangerous, so VHS has some general safety guidelines, and will be added to this wiki. Additionally, some tools have additional safety and usage requirements that apply specifically to that tool, so be sure to check that tool's page if you're unsure. Used safely, the tools in at VHS can be used to create some awesome things, so it's worth your while to get an experienced member to show you how to use these tools.
