Tool NameDescriptionImage
A.C. ClampmeterThis instrument can be clamped over a wire to measure the current flowing through it.
Analog Discovery 2A USB oscilloscope, logic analyzer, and multi-function instrument that allows users to measure, visualize, generate, record, and control mixed-signal circuits of all kinds.
BTMN BoardARM training board used in ENGE320. Coupled with the Arduino Zero. Shield includes an AMOLED display, joystick, DPAD, RGB LED's, accelerometer, SD Card slot, and a piezo buzzer.
Basys 3 FPGA BoardFPGA training board used in ENGE220. Has a bank of switches, buttons, LCD display, 7-Segment display, piezo buzzer, stepper motor driver, and more!
Battery ChargerThis is a battery charger for lead acid batteries.
Battery Terminal CleanerA wire brush designed to remove corrosion and contaminants from the terminals of a car battery.
Bottle JackThis is a hydraulic jack and can be used for lifting heavy objects. Never put anything under heavy objects that you wouldn't want crushed.
Bubble LevelA bubble level has many uses including, but not limited to verify plumb and level. Some of the many uses include picture and sign hanging, post installation, machine leveling.
ClippersAlso known as diagonal cutters.
Cordless 1/2" Impact Driver and socketsThe impact Driver is specially designed for tightening and loosening various hex-head bolts, nuts, and lag screws. It employs both rotational force (torque) and short-burst concussive blows (impacts) to deliver an unparalleled amount of power.
Cordless DrillYou can use a cordless drill driver to drill or bore holes, drive screws, assemble furniture, and woodworking.
CrimpersFor crimping things.
DC Power SupplyA desktop device to provide DC power to a circuit at a specified voltage. Our BK Precision power supplies have three outputs: two output 0-24 V variable voltage with a max current of .5 A, and one outputs a fixed 5 V with a max current of 4 A. The electronics station in the center of the Maker Hub has several power supplies available for use. If all of these are in use, or if you would like to use a power supply elsewhere in the Hub, you can check one out from the Tool Room.
Digilent Nexys 2A powerful digital system design platform built around a Xilinx Spartan-3E FPGA.
Digital Logic ProbesProbes that can be used with...
Digital TachometerThis is an instrument that is used to measure revolutions per minute or RPM. This is a non contact device that uses light and a reflector. This device can be used to measure the RPM of a motor shaft.
DremelHand powered tool with different tips, that is mostly used for craft purposes, such as carving, etching and sanding small items.
Electronic ScaleDevice to measure weight or mass.
Eye LoupesSmall magnifying glasses.
Fluke Thermal ImagerA thermal Camera. Very Expensive.
FluxFor soldering.
Flux BrushFor soldering.
Flux PenFor soldering.
Fume ExtractorA device which uses a fan to collect and filter harmful fumes. Always use one of these when soldering for your protection.
Function GeneratorA device which can produce a basic electrical signal. Our function generators can produce sine waves, square waves, and triangle waves at frequencies between 1 Hz and 10 MHz. They can also be configured to produce a "sweep signal" - a signal with a linearly varying frequency.
GoPro CameraFor Going Pro. Takes Video and Pictures. Can be used with the GoPro Accessories in the GoPro accessory kit.
Heat GunA power tool that emits a stream of hot air, usually at temperatures between 100 °C and 550 °C (200-1000 °F), with some hotter models running around 760 °C (1400 °F), which can be held by hand
Heat Sink ClipHeat sink clip for soldering.
Helium Balloon InflatorThis is connected to a helium bottle and allows the user to fill a helium balloon.
Helping HandsAn extra set of hands to hold things while soldering.
Holesaw KitA holesaw is used in a drill to cut perfectly round holes in a wide variety of materials
LED WorklightA really bright light for illuminating an area.
Laser ThermometersHandheld device that can display temperature readout on it after scanning portions of an object or area with the built-in laser. They tend to be inaccurate when measuring shiny objects, putting some non-reflective tape on the object can help give a better measurement.
Logic AnalyzerUsed to monitor and debug various digital signals and communication busses.
MirrorAn extendable mirror for viewing hard-to-see places.
MultimeterAn instrument for conducting measurements on a circuit. They can measure DC voltage, AC RMS Voltage, current, resistance, and more. Multimeters are essential tools for testing or troubleshooting a circuit. The tool room has two kinds available for checkout: handheld and desktop. There are also several desktop multimeters available for use at the electronics station in the center of the Maker Hub.
Needle Nose PliersSkinny pliers.
OscilloscopeAn instrument for measuring and graphically displaying varying signal voltages. They can can plot a changing electrical signal over time, and then analyze it for properties including frequency, wavelength, and amplitude. Our oscilloscopes have four channels, meaning they can display four signals at once.
PCB TweezersTweezers for PCBs.
Portable ViseA vice grip for holding things.
Pressure GaugesFor measuring pressure.
Pressure RegulatorThis is for reducing the air pressure of a compressed air bottle.
PunchThis is some sample text. This is also some sample text. I am a big fan of sample text. This is more sample text. This is even more sample text. I am a really big fan of sample text. This is the same sample text. This is more of the same sample text. I am a big fan of this sample text.
Rivet GunA tool for driving rivets.
Robin BoardsAVR training board used in ENGE320. Coupled with the Atmel 328P Xplained. Shield includes a 7-Segment display, some buttons, a switch, RGB LED's, and a piezo buzzer.
Solder Station SpongesFor cleaning the soldering iron tip.
Solder SuckerFor sucking solder.
Solder TipsReplacement tips for soldering irons.
Solder WicksFor soldering.
Soldering IronA hand tool which heats metal solder in order to join two components. Soldering is most commonly used to join electrical components in a circuit. There are two soldering kits for use at the electronics station in the center of the Maker Hub, and there are also several available for checkout in the Tool Room. For your safety, please always place the soldering iron in its holder when not in use. Always use a fume extractor to protect yourself from harmful fumes. Soldering kits also come with a tackle box containing useful tools for soldering, such as wire crimpers. Please make sure all contents of this box are returned when you finish using a soldering kit.
