Past students have purchased tools at Sears, Home Depot, Lowes, and specialty stores. Permanently identify each of your tools with your name or a symbol because your classmates will all have the same or similar looking tools.
There are three area vendors that sell discounted tools to students. Tools purchased from these vendors can be delivered to the student's home during the summer, or delivered to the HVAC/Refrigeration Laboratory at Delhi College during the first week of Fall classes. Ace Hardware is next to the Campus and purchased tools can be picked up there.
