Old Business

  • Housekeeping
    • Noise curfew in effect as always. :) Midnight to 8am.
    • If you make someone sign a waiver make sure it is legible!

  • Board meeting
    • Jon sent an email to Garden Street about renting the unit next door.
    • Website - If anyone notices anything missing please bring it up! We are pretty much done with the bulk of the work.
    • Discount photons (halve the price of laser minutes)
  • Tool update
    • Gigabot - still broken
    • Mill - Other two linear encoders/scales need to be mounted, but they are here!
    • Laser update - Still trying to figure out the lid situation. We should probably add a hood prop thing/kickstand
    • CNC - If you want to learn to use it you need to put forth most of the effort on your own. Helping build out the rest of the machine is a fantastic way to learn the machine!
