Hive76 has a wide combination of equipment owned by members on loan, Hive owned equipment, and personal equipment at the space, but only for private use. To help manage what can be used by who, we have a sticker system.
Personal Tables and Boxes
Core members get a personal box, or a personal table space. It is reserved for their use only, and should be clearly labeled as "Barbra's Table Space" or "Tim's Box" or something else clear. This is reserved for that members use. This in that area are a members personal tools/equipment, and you must ask them before using them. Basic members get 1/2 of a storage box to use for their own storage. Again, things in those boxes are a members personal stuff, and you must ask before borrowing or using any of those things.
Just sitting around the spaceThings just laying around are usually for anyone to use, unless they have a sticker on them. Member Matt C cut and donated a set of hexagonal stickers in red, yellow, and orange for keeping track of things left in the space.
A member should put these on items they bring in that should not be handled without permission.
These stickers are for items that belong to a member, are for general use, but should not be disassembled or trashed.

These are 'Guff' and should be considered fair game for any kind of use. Of course it looks expensive, someone might have just not labeled it. Use your best judgment, and ask on the discussion or members email list if you are not sure. For things like Paper Towels, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a refill if you use the last of it.
