Re: Security

Jepsen will probably stop by for the Wed meeting. Apparently the leaseholder/landlord is pretty pissed as well since it's supposed to be secured when no one is here. They are also irritated about fireworks being shot off from their beams, all the trash & bottles, and stuff being left out like it...

Security

Arrived at HF today to find police at Jepsen next door. Our gate was left unlocked and thieves came in over the weekend (last night?) and stole some I-beams.

Also, garage door left unlocked.

Re: Donated Oxy/Actyl kit!

the regulators should be good (smith) but the gauge replacement should be $35 max at mo2.

prolly wanna get some smith spark arrestors at the same time you replace the hose.

Re: Donated Oxy/Actyl kit!

took a look today. the smith torch head looks serviceable. wouldn't hesitate to use it and evaluate condition then. it might need a cleaning or at worst a go-through by the tech at mpls o2. tanks: flip a coin on these. not sure if mpls o2 will take tanks that didn't originate from them. also, this s...

Re: Welding Lab

broadband reclaimed the welding table yesterday & sent it to their other warehouse. i'll put together an estimate for materials to build another one. 4x8 was a great (luxurious?) size. we could get away with 4x4 easy as well. the top was 3/8" but we could do 1/4"--i'll price out both. ...

Re: Hack Factory Facility Updates and Questions

I came in to use my oxy/acetylene gear tonight. The hose was all wrapped around the tanks and not on the hook. When I went to attach a cutting head, I noticed that the torch body housing was bent at the threads. It looks like someone moved the tanks and ran over the torch body or banged it on the ta...

Re: Welding Lab

Lockers

Got 3 lockers from Barry to use for the weld lab. Dave--I took the liberty of putting the weld jackets & gloves in the 3rd locker for you. Nice to have a place to keep a change of clothes, small projects & weld gear.
