(The items linked here are probably the lowest available price, but due to the quantity of data I've been digging through I cannot do exhaustive searches on everything so this is not currently certain.)

Originally this page was a simple listing of what we might want in a grant, but has grown into a comprehensively costed listing for application purposes. Where possible, tools are emphasised over materials. The idea is to increase the range of our abilities, via either new avenues or extending capabilities of current equipment.

The table has delusions of being a spreadsheet and does almost clever things. Edit carefully if you have to!

NOTE: If you wish to add to the Wishlist proper, please head to the end of the page - much of the current content is frozen as a grant application is now in progress. In particular this is where the hand tools list is brewing, to replace Steve's toolbag with our own set.

Council Grant wishlist/totals page is [here] if still needed for reference. The Wishlist is currently brewing the Lottery application, under the assumption that the Council Grant succeeded fully. Note that it is now slightly outdated as the lathe is no longer required, freeing ~£164.39 for other purposes (hopefully craft related ones, especially textiles, specifically dressmaking and other costumery).

David has promised a resin kitlist, this will go into Essential Materials when available. It's not a blocking number as we should hopefully have flexibility regarding what materials we buy. He's also suggested a casting workshop at some point this year.

Budget category is for grant purposes, and automatic totalling. By the same token Cost is cleaned line cost eg 3 * goggles at '£3-5ish' == 3*4 == £12. For specifically costed items that only one are needed of, this is a duplicate of Price.


 Woodworking T&E (Replacement hand tools, air filtration, bandsaw, radial arm drill, minimill for stretch)
 Main Room T&E (Rapid kitlist is one bay's worth. Assuming one bay included in this grant for now, for eventually three top notch bays in total)
 Maintenance and Improvement (Lighting needed)
 Essential Materials (Same as last time - wood, filament, resin, screws, solder, etc. Requesting input from all concerned parties about woodstock, paints and finishes.)

Some tools span room usage or purpose, eg calipers are used for more than woodwork, gloves all sorts, but until category numbers need adjusting I'm using which room it'll be stored in as the delimiter.

Please do not change table structure. Javascript automatically updates '£subtotal' fields based on cell position/indexes.

Heading +' Later' eg 'Woodworking T&E Later' is valid; it lets me keep things in the list that are for a later time/grant/too much for this one's budget/etc.

Materials / Consumables.

Assuming we have spare change in the grant, what house stock do we want to soak it up with? This is also useful as a bargaining tool so we can 'haggle down' if needed, by removing things that we didn't really need in the first place. It should all be justifiable, but some rationale relate more strongly to some aspects of 'revitalisation' than others.

- Filament; any in particular? Assuming 4 reels of https://shop.3dfilaprint.com/filaprint-dark-blue-premium-pla-175mm-3d-printer-filament-1277-p.asp or similar colours until someone weighs in. 1.75 and 2.85 are the same price (£20.95). Also free sample filaments per reel. 
- Shrapnel kits (Total £59.96);

- Component kits (Total: £19.62); (Resistors and LEDs we're bloody swimming in.)

- Wood dyes, paints? Steve said some were missing - if I know which we can replace them? Spray paint is always useful eventually. A good ebony dye would be very nice.
- Lumber; any specifics? Plywood, CLS, pine planks ?
- Kitchen etc
  - cleaning materials
  - teabags / coffee
  - blueroll
- Catering expenses for volunteer workers is allowable in some grants. Point to consider for working party days.

To research / add:

For the lottery grant (see also Grants#Priorities):

Passive air filtration. Bloody useful and it could be considered under a few grant budget headings as accountancy requires. http://www.axminster.co.uk/jet-afs-500-air-filtration-system-310483 £304.25 - or one twice as effective for £90 more - http://www.axminster.co.uk/jet-afs-1000b-air-filtration-system-310481 £394.04 Other options are certainly available. Filters and mounting gubbins will also be needed for whichever is chosen.

The workshop is currently using Steve's toolkit for hand tool supply. Eventually we should replace this with our own - a decently equipped toolbox is about £150-200. See bottom of page for initial Lottery costings.

The same applies for the hand power tools. Pending discussion on loaning policy to avoid wasting a few grand.

It may be worth investing in a 3D printer that allows something otherwise new, eg a huge print bed, or multiple extruders. In particular, soluble filament would open new doors.

Lesser importance:

Small craft tools. To be costed.

Screen printing equipment. Digital and/or oldschool? This is a beast I am unfamiliar with. Space is also a factor. A 'starter kit' seems to be about £60, but is mostly consumables. If someone with time and preferably interest could research this I'd appreciate it, I'm oversaturated with research as it is.

A 'better' front door camera. Awaiting thoughts from Jon. We have potentially been offered a free replacement from Sir James, uncertain as to timeframe or quality though.

Long-term consumables may be worth investing in. In particular, paints, wood dyes and finishes spring to mind. On a related note, also paintbrushes.

Building infrastructure

For grants that are usable for construction materials. Need to measure roof area, carpet area, and rafter shelf length and height. Check for damp issues under there too...

Artist's impression of proposed shelving. Rumours of a magic carpet launch silo are entirely unsubstantiated.

The Under Rafter shelves

 Ply, assume  18x1220x2440mm 5 * £34.99 ; £174.93 (a lot of flat surface to cover here)
 CLS, 3 * £2.50 ; £7.50
 Casters, assume 8 bays * £4.29 pack 4 casters ; £34.32
 Screws, 500 * 1; £4.99


CLS: 45cm * 7 * 2; 6.3m / 2.4m = 3 beams; £7.50. If we need support under, 2 * 5.6 = 11.2 / 2.4m = 5 beams; +£12.50

Plywood: 80cm * 120cm * 6 = 2 sheets, 5.6m * 80cm = +3 sheets. Technically can do 2 sheets but the joints would be everywhere.

It might be worth giving each 'bay' a plastic or fabric curtain to stop dust getting back there, otherwise boxes and such will become dust traps. This may potentially affect air movement and thus damp issues though. Prices are from Wickes. Are we limiting this enterprise to one side only? Assuming so for now.


https://www.diy.com/departments/colours-cornflower-carpet-tile/81105_BQ.prd for no particular reason other than cost and vaguely similar colour.

The uncarpeted area is 5.6M by 8.8M. Tiles are .5M so rounding up to 6 by 9; halftiles will mean we have some left over but a few spares are not a bad thing.

In total, £11.76 per square meter for 54 square meters ... £635.04 Facebook Marketplace seems an erratic but good value source of cheap tiles.


They are our main outlay. In theory we should use grants that allow such use for as much of them as we can, to free up member dues for sustainability purposes, but past a point the grant proposal won't look exciting enough to be approved. Each grant varies in what is allowable, and their attitude towards overhead costs.

Monthly costs:

Rent: £437
Insurance: £60


Internet: £66
Electricity and gas: £shedloads

Annual Costs:

Landlord Insurance: £275

Irregular costs:

Boiler Servicing: £unknown
Accountancy: £unknown

Things that would be very nice but we can probably build or bodge:

https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/clarke-4-inch-cross-vice-ccv4c/ £47.98 , solid cross vice. Adam is currently brewing something out of scraps and dreams for the drill press but it won't be as sturdy!

https://www.screwfix.com/p/triton-tsps450-450w-oscillating-spindle-sander-240v/1417k £120 , Bobbin sander. Wonderful for anything non-flat, but we could in theory make our own.

The 'Magic Money Wand' Section

Lottery Grant


  • Main room electronics bays. Assuming the same as last time - £525.60.
  • Basic workshop toolkit - about £200 when including measuring gubbins, see below.
  • Overheads. As needed to fill numbers, up to half of the grant or so.
  • The workshop roof. Rough estimate but quotes are needed - this might not make it into the grant application but we should still have the information and option. £1,500-£2,500
  • Air filtration unit - http://www.axminster.co.uk/jet-afs-1000b-air-filtration-system-310481 £394.04

Non-critical but lovely:

To Cost

  • Lighting in the main room
  • Ventilation fan for the workshop - landlord has offered to half-fund this!

Which consumables? Same as last time?

Main Room Additions

  • Sharpies.
  • More drawing equipment - I've equipped us with basic geometry and stationery, but curve rulers would be excellent.
  • Cutting mats
  • Metal rulers with nonslip backing
  • Actual scalpels, and a more rugged general craft knife

Craft 'starter kits'

To expand options.

  • Leatherwork
  • Wirework
  • Papercraft
  • Painting/finishing. Brushes, pallets and solvents etc.

Wilko disallow online shopping for some pointy things, so an awl and Stanley knife are also needed. We need an actual tool storage device too - I'm considering building a mobile toolstand rather than having things in a heap on the floor.

Current total £165.25.

I'd suggest that we keep Steve's toolbag around for now, along with mine, but that any tools used from either are made a note of. After a while we'll build up a clearer picture of what else we need to add to ours.
