The space would benefit greatly from new signage. Signs will be hung in each specific zone listed below and beside certain special tools in the shop. Please add to and edit this page, especially if you are a zone warden or tool owner.

Signs by zone will call out which major tools are owned by whom and provide relevant follow-up information for curious learners. Signs by zone will also indicate who the appointed Zone Warden is. Links to the wiki and other web resources are highly encouraged!

Signs by the special tools should call out: the tool's owner; where documentation and/or learning material may be found; usage criteria (as these special tools are EXPENSIVE, only certified/approved users should be using them); and wiki page / relevant links.

If you are a zone warden or tool owner, please update this page!

If you have specific questions about the sign posting initiative, follow up with Ross Smith or Paul Kerchen - or just check out the members-only Google Group.

It's probably worth noting that we're only looking for content here--Ross and I will make the actual, physical signs.
