    • Postponed
  • January 29, 2022 - Tech Committee Meeting - 1:30
    • Virtual


  • Would like to incorporate this more - need more snappy name
  • KATE C has sorted out 2 totes of donated yarn. Organization is one of those things that take a lot of time but isn't very obvious and can be a thankless task, but not today! Thank you!!!
  • KEVIN M has been working on programming for the kilns. This makes it so that the kilns are ready for whatever you need! Thanks Kevin! It's surely a long, drawn out process but is a huge improvement to the hot crafts area! Kevin also made us some much needed door signage!!
    • Both kilns now have the USER programs PR01 set to an appropriate cycle for loading and annealing Soft Glass and PR02 set to the same for Boro glass
    • The SC2 (smaller, blue) kiln has the Investment Casting Wax Burnout cycle programmed into PR03.
    • The Heatmaster (Purple) kiln's controller has a built-in cycle for this purpose, which can be found in the "JWL" program group, by selecting the length of burnout you want and then entering the final temperature
    • USER cycles on the kiln's wiki pages:
  • RALPH B - always puts in huge amount of effort to keeping the laser walk up ready, and being available to help out with any questions and guidance. You're amazing Ralph, and we really appreciate all you do.
  • DAVE V & JOHN C were working hard on the paint booth this weekend. In true J&D fashion, they spent a huge amount of time on it. There's no doubting these two gents' dedication to the space.

      • Discussion in #welding, Amphay leading
      • need carts w/ storgae for MIG and TIG
        • Cabinets $200-400 each
      • We are essentially out of TIG consumables, need full restock, About $400-500
      • expect around $1000-1200 total vote
      • Likely being posted in the next week
    • Machine Shop Work Surfaces (w/ storage?)
      • Discussion in #machining
      • Options are:
        • another big 4 x 8 table
          • pros: cheap and quick, already have proven design
          • cons: not as useful as a backtable when working at machines, no tool storage, would not help if two people were in shop at same time using different machines
          • would be around $200 total cost, have most materials on hand
        • mobile workbenches for tool storage and back tables at machines
          • Cabinets $400 each, and would want one each for lathe, mills, roland, and metrology/layout tools, 4 total
          • Pros: much better as back tables at machines, massive amounts of tool storage, can be moved around to suit work being done
          • cons: quite expensive, won't have a single large continuous work surface
          • would be around $1600 total vote
          • Hoping to post for vote in February
