The tool cabinet is a passive building that provides a 6% work speed bonus to workbenches linked to it. It is a Facility and can be found in the Misc section of the Architect menu. Tool cabinets can be uninstalled and relocated at will.

Linkable workbenches

A tool cabinet can be linked to the workbenches listed below. These correspond with the requirements for the Workshop Room role, excluding the electric smelter. There is no limit to the number of workbenches a tool cabinet can connect to. A bench can at most connect to two tool cabinets, therefore allowing a possible 12% increase in work speed.

The bonus may seem small at first, but adds up very quickly, effectively reducing the time needed to craft Marine armor from 60,000 ticks (16.67 mins) to 53,571 ticks (14.88 mins), a difference of approximately 6,420 ticks (1.78 mins) or 2.6 in-game hours.

Creating a link

Links are automatically created when the tool cabinet and a supported bench are within range. The maximum range is shown in the image below. Links are shown simply as a white line and are visible by selecting a tool cabinet or a workbench. The info screen of a linked workbench will list its current Work Speed Factor.

Maximum range from the tool cabinet to center of a workbench.
