Fix or destroy night 7/20 5pm

Postby karinf22 » Wed Jul 13, 2011 1:15 pm

We have too much junk...or not junk...that's part of the problem! WE DON"T KNOW! In an effort to help clean up our space we need the help of about ten knowledgeable people to determine the status of some of the stuff we have on the shelves. We need to determine exactly what works what doesn't, is it fixable or is it junk that can be scrapped for parts or just tossed. Each item will need a sticker placed on it saying it was evaluated and what was determined.

Who we need:
Mechanical for misc
Computer for our mound of computers
Electrical to focus on electrical stuff
Evil geniuses to help organize the madness

Some beer will be provided if that will help you work better :)

Wednesday July 20th 5pm-7pm Meet in the classroom for the fun mayhem and destruction!

Tell your friends!

Feel free to put a new post-it note on the bench-top drill press sitting up in the rafters if the one on it was lost. It's one of these

DP-600 12" Bench-top Drill Press

If one of our metalworking friends can fashion a new version of the broken piece (part that holds the thrust bearing, should be in a plastic bag), perhaps we could use this as a spindle sander.

Or if it's not worth fixing, sell it for scrap or toss it.

Drillpress will be fixed. Jon and I think it will be great to dedicate to chisel bits for mortising.

A dedicated mortise station would be brilliant! Anything I can do to help Jude and Jon? Let me know.

Hey, how did fix or destroy go? Sorry I wasn't able to make it to HF yesterday - had some family commitments and found a nail in one of my car tires.

I tested the grill.

It worked great.

Beer fridge is in excellent working order too.

One board member was not working at 100%, but hopefully that will be rectified withing the next 24 hours.
