CARP 220 Residential Remodeling Laboratory Tool List

CARP 220 is taken by the majority of Carpentry majors in the second year (third semester). If you have been through the first year of Carpentry, you may already have some of these tools.

The faculty expect that you will have all of the REQUIRED tools and safety equipment listed on this page at the time they are needed in the Laboratory or on the job site. You may be dismissed from class for failure to have the required tools. It is your responsibility to have and maintain your own tools.

There are two area vendors that sell discounted tools to students, Fastenal and Tinkertown Supply. Tools purchased from either vendor can be delivered to the student's home during the summer, or be delivered to the HVAC/Refrigeration Laboratory at SUNY Delhi during the first week of fall classes. The sales representatives are:
