I have been recently asked by our local council to help design the layout for a workshop they are building at a local camp.

They have the major power tools (Table Saw, Band Saw, Jointer, Scroll Saw, etc) but are very low on bench tools.

I am trying to come up with a list of tools for each Scout workstation, which I can then try to get local companies to sponsor.

Here is the list I have:
Tape Measure
Ear Muffs
Eye Protection
2 Clamps – QUick Grip 24”
Saw – Basic straight back saw—rigid back
Screwdrivers—#1, #2, and #3 Philips, Standard, Robertson, and Torx (15, 20, 25)
Glue Dispenser (Glu-Bot small)
Drill BIts – One of the Dewalt or Kobalt sets they sell around Christmas time with everything
Drill/ Driver
Sand Paper—80, 120, 180, 220, 300 , 400

Any other ideas on what to include or how to get donations?

Gloves and a knife for cutting (although most of them should be carrying one anyway)
Also I don’t know that I have ever used a protractor for wood working, but that’s just me.

Have your say...
