A review of this machine by one of our volunteers at the CUCFL for paper cutting reports satisfactory results:

Another thought would be to have the "Fabduino" or equivalent as part of the $100 fab lab:

A link to the Fabduino

And another with a parts list
http://makeyourbot.org/fabio-1-1
And the .CAD file, for those who use the fab modules

which is taken from the fab academy class page
http://academy.cba.mit.edu/classes/embedded_programming/index.html
under the "IDE" subheading

Casting using various resins could also be a part of the 10^2 fab lab:

An inventory of resins and patterns could be provided which would allow for the construction something, for example hot gluing hydrostone elements?

Simple radio kit?
