Note that some of this stuff was originally donated by Ruzz which I've been storing since.
- White plastic double bowl kitchen sink and draining board (some units at Solent Business Centre had plumbing but no actual tap or sink bowl, so this could be useful).

- HP Colour Laserjet 2605DN, networked colour printer, with consumables that aren't empty yet.
- Small set of metal office drawers on castors suitable to above printer to live on.

- MacAllister Cordless Multisaw (no battery, but we can use any old NiCad pack).
- 'PowerCraft' cordless sander, jigsaw & torch, (battery appears to be dead / needs NiCad cells replacing).

- A big box of other stuff including wireless webcams and other things I need to look through.
- Kenwood Surround sound Amp (requires new mains cable but appears to work), Nad stereo Preamp and a Maplin 5 channel audio mixer with equalizer. Basically we can build a small audio test bench with the addition of a pair of speakers.
