Can an artificer cast spells using a single component from a set of artisan’s tools?

Under Tools Required

You produce your artificer spell effects through your tools. You must have a spellcasting focus – specifically tinker’ tools or some kind of artisan’s tool – in hand when you cast any spell with this Spellcasting feature. You must be proficient with the tool to use it in this way.

"Artisan’s tool" is singular. But it can refer to a set of objects.

For example:

Weaver’s tools include thread, needles, and scraps of cloth.

Weaver’s tools are an artisan’s tool but does an artificer proficient with them need to hold the needle, thread, and cloth in one hand to cast spells?

For example, the party has been striped of all their belongings but not their clothes. Can an artificer with proficiency in weaver’s tools tear off a scrap of their clothing and begin casting?

As you may have read my title. I’m here seeking out any ideas or advice from experts or normal users like me, for an assignment of mine, which I need to create a software/tool that is an improvement over the current tools that are available online or even a completely new software/tool. With regards to any software like Wireshark, autopsy, or even tools like Dirb, gobuster on kali Linux. Do you guys have any issue/complaints with the current software/tool you guys are using?

I've build this as a challenge for myself, and accomplished as much. Unfortunately, I'm tight on cash and would like to pass it on to someone else who may want or need it — either for SEO or otherwise. It has great potential in the right hands.

Are alchemist’s tools required for Infused Reagents & Advanced Alchemy?

The Pathfinder 2 alchemist gets the Advanced Alchemy feature, which lets them spend their daily Infused Reagents resource to create alchemical items. The class description suggests that alchemist’s tools are involved with this process. However, neither the Infused Reagents feature nor the Advanced Alchemy feature mention that alchemist’s tools are required.

Infused Reagents

You infuse reagents with your own alchemical essence, allowing you to create alchemical items at no cost. Each day during your daily preparations, you gain a number of batches of infused reagents…

Advanced Alchemy

During your daily preparations, after producing new infused reagents, you can spend batches of those infused reagents to create infused alchemical items. You don’t need to attempt a Crafting check to do this…

Searching through the Core Rulebook, the only mentions of alchemist’s tools are:

  • pg 72: Quick Alchemy, a different alchemist feature that consumes infused reagents
  • pg 81: Improbable Elixirs, an 18th level alchemist feat
  • pg 245 & 480: the Identify Alchemy action (no reference to the alchemist class)
  • pg 287-289: Alchemist’s Tools listing in the "Gear" section (no reference to the alchemist class)
  • pg 445: The definition of "Item bonus" uses alchemist’s tools as an example.

The first printing errata does not address this, although it mentions a new weight and price for alchemist’s tools.

Does an alchemist (or a non-alchemist with the alchemist archetype) actually need alchemist’s tools to use Infused Reagents or Advanced Alchemy? Or can they make their daily preparations via Advanced Alchemy without using alchemist’s tools?
