To keep things a little more organized and more modular than they were before this is the general setup: Members will get storage boxes that are up to 12" x 16" x 38". Multiple people have tested picking them up and with handles everyone has felt they are a comfortable size. This will allow either five or six boxes per row in the pallet racks (not all of our pallet packs are the same width).
To start each membership may have two spaces by default. Three spaces may be requested by talking to the COO. This will prevent us from using up a huge amount of space for member storage rather than tools. Each member should have their items in storage inside of a box or boxes, and not just placed on the shelf.
There are a few classes of items that will not fit in one of these boxes:
- Raw materials (sheets of plastic and wood)
- Large projects
- Large tools
Large raw materials are currently stored near the tools they will be used with (wood is in the Temporary Wood Project Storage, metal in the dirty room, and plastic in the fab lab) and will probably continue to be like this. We may come up with a more organized solution for these items on a per area basis. If your material is not in a labelled shelf, it should have your name on it to help insure it's not used by someone else thinking it's free to use.
Large projects will have a temporary storage area and will need to be okayed by the COO and renewed on a monthly basis. If there are projects that will be worked on regularly for a few weeks then there will eventually be a couple of work benches that will be available for "checking out" for this kind of stuff. We have a small problem with longer term projects taking up work space right now. Large projects stored for a couple of days (i.e. drying paint/stain) may be left out on the workbenches with a note containing your name and contact info, and a date by when it'll be removed. Please understand that projects left out like this may be moved if needed.
Large tools will have to be okayed by the COO.
- If the tool is part of a large project, it can be stored with it if the owner doesn't want others using it.
- Large tools can also be brought down so the owner has a better place to use it/more room at their home. If this is the situation the general membership should be allowed to use it while it is here. This must be okayed by the COO.
If you have any thoughts or want to bring something up then talk to the COO.
