 +===== Supplies at the Space ====
 +We have a substantial inventory of parts and consumables for your project, especially in the electronics area. A [[https://​docs.google.com/​spreadsheets/​d/​1kBd4yD6tD4iiH_N0aPrj6xcy9dT9w-kkXc98Wf44FP0/​edit?​usp=sharing|shared google doc ]] lists some of the inventory. Ask if we have it before buying it! Proper etiquette is to replace what you use, if it's a popular thing, or donate in kind. Parts and supplies are for "​making",​ not to replace something broken at home. This is a loose distinction,​ do what you think is in the spirit of the maker movement. ​
  
 +For example, if you use the last of the wood glue, buy a new bottle. If you use the last the last of the 555 timers, we will buy you a beer.

 +We have some [[unclaimed_treasures|unique items]].
 +
 +And a large collection of "​[[junk pile|junk]]"​.
