Tools for node-mounting
- One foldable woodworking table (like this)
- One decent RJ45 crimper (blue handle) with somewhat worn out cutting blades

Less than useful stuff

- A bunch of random indoor routers that do support modern OpenWRT but no two are alike
- A great big stack of the original blue linksys routers. These only support old versions of OpenWRT.
