How to get inducted

All of our tools and machines required some form of induction. The only exception to this are small hand tools such as our electric drills, screwdrivers, etc.

The best place to find information about how to get inducted is on the wiki page for the tool. You can find this by going to the Tools page and selecting the tool you want to use.

Most tools use our tool template so that we have a consistent approach to documenting our tools and machines. On these tool pages, you'll see a green/amber/red notice box at the top of the page showing the tools current operational status. Directly below this, you'll see the “Usage” area which includes instructions on how to get inducted, how to get started with using the machine, and any important notes.

If you come across a tool wiki page that doesn't use our tool template, it may not have detailed usage/induction instructions. In these cases, please contact the cause that maintains the tool via their channel in Discord, or on our membership forum here. The most common way to get inducted with these tools is to organise an induction directly with a cause volunteer, but it varies, so be sure to ask.
