Consensus Agenda

Safety cabinet

Flammables safety cabinet for chemicals currently stored in plastic bin in the shop area- Requesting $300, but searching for low-cost secondhand options.

  • Is that a cost for a new or a used one? --Guan (talk) 15:18, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
    • Used. New runs around $800. I have also found cheap beat-up cabinets for as low as $100. I'm more interested in safety than aesthetics.
