The CMS has a great selection of tools, but we're regularly expanding our tool-set to build our capacity, help our community members make new things, and support a growing range of interests. The list below includes tools that we're trying to acquire for this purpose. If you would like to help us acquire any of these tools for the MakerSpace, either by making a financial contribution or donating a piece of equipment, please contact the CMS Director at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd be absolutely grateful for your support!
