Thank you to everyone for showing up!
Results: The CNC area looks quite a bit more friendly. Great job, everybody!
The random stuff that was sitting around Pete's CNC was mostly garage sale stuff. It sounds like we'll have to either designate an area for holding these type items or we'll have to have the garage sale.
The Cyberoptics machine needs love and attention. I'm willing to help bolt things together in a nice-looking and secure fashion until we get a head for it. Among those present, we talked about what that should be. The consensus seems to be that we need a laser cutter/engraver at the Hack Factory. We've already got two spindle-based machines, so that makes sense to me, at least.
The Operation game has yet to find a permanent home but Chris suggested that it should remain somewhere visible - to which the rest of us agreed. It would be great if we could hang it back up on the wall somewhere in the main area. It's a very identifiable example of the fun things that TC Makers do, and it often presents the case where passers-by might say "Oh, you're the folks with the big Operation game!", since it's so often seen at events in the community.
The other projects that were there (Paul's stone/wood thing and another table full of oddities) were gently moved to the side of the room, against the wall near the fence. The milk jugs were tied up and set on top of the office. Everything else was tidied up as best can be.
I'm going to try to find some shelves to bring in just for CNC stuff storage. We have a number of complete machines and a few more projects that are in progress. Ideally, this storage area will be reserved only for CNC area machines and works in progress, so we can keep things away from das blinkenlights und minimize der gefingerpoken.
All in all, a success! Thanks again!
