Pro Tips 
  • Whenever you’re cutting or scraping, please use a cutting mat. We do have a table in the TEC Garage that’s designed for more wear-inducing tasks! 
  • A flathead screwdriver is built to drive flathead screws only. 
  • If you’re working with PLA from the 3D printers, it scrapes much better than it sands/abrades. 
  • Make sure to wear the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) when dealing with things that make loud noises or could fly into your eyes!
  • Can I take a tool with me and bring it back later? 
    • No, tools can’t leave the space. If you take a tool, it means that nobody else can use it.
