Toolbox

Please use the Tool list download to help with your understanding of what items you need to bring to the competition, and what tools and equipment the competition organiser will provide.

​If you cannot obtain the tools yourself, perhaps ask your college or employer to help you. As a last resort you should contact the SkillFRIDGE project manager for assistance at least two weeks prior to the competition date.
