Suggestion,

Since there is a thread on tool access control, could we move those conversations there. I think it's great conversation, but it seems out of place here, and leads to thread sprawl.

Adding controlled access to some resources

Keyfob is solving the wrong problem, It's not an authorization problem. This is a tragedy of the commons (ToC) problem. The tragedy of the commons arises from the situation in which multiple individuals, acting independently and rationally consulting their own self-interest, will ultimately destroy a shared limited resource, even when it is clear that it is not in anyone's long-term interest for this to happen.

The solution is, sadly, government. Someone must act as a guardian for the commons, to protect the resource for the betterment of all.

Is there any chance of getting to a place and a system where the plasma cutter might come back in to play gleefully and safely with the other fun tools?
