Mill, Late and Tig inductions are now on the booking form

Team is meeting on the 16th to start defining a set induction program for each tool, to be documented on the wiki (like the laser) so we can bring new inductors on board over time

Had offer of a Surface grinder on Long Term Loan, but don’t have the space right now, waiting to see what happens with 2.5 project at AGM

Sophie Wilkinson [8:10 PM] 
Item on Agenda: Long Term Loan:
- we have a large number of tools in the space that are on long term loan.
- we had an issue with an item on long term loan and it has prompted discussion between the trustees.
- rules have been put together and happy to take any comments

Sophie Wilkinson [8:10 PM]
- we will then retrospectively do this for all tools

Sophie Wilkinson [8:11 PM]
terms are:
- nottinghack: organisation
- space: our physical space
- trustees: trustees
- lender: person lending the item

Matt Lloyd [8:12 PM] 
Terms for long term loan of items - Nottingham Hackspace Ltd.

Nottinghack refers to the organisation Nottingham Hackspace Ltd
Space refers to the physical area, building or buildings leased or purchased by Nottinghack
Trustee refers to members elected to ensure the adequate running of Nottinghack
I, me, myself, lender refers to the member or person loaning the item

I agree that the item will be subject to wear and tear in use, and the results of this are not the responsibility of Nottinghack. I understand that Nottinghack has hundreds of members, with 24/7 access. This means wear and tear will be at a much faster rate than single person usage.
I grant Nottinghack unlimited rights to carry out maintenance on the item if it is deemed necessary.
Nottinghack will meet reasonable repair costs, and the Trustees will decide if those costs are reasonable on a case by case basis.
Where the repair exceeds a reasonable cost, or Nottinghack is unable to cover the cost, the Trustees and myself will agree whether the item is repaired or removed from the space (see point 4).
Nottinghack will agree to arbitrate between myself and any member found to have damaged the item through willful mistreatment, but I understand that any member could refuse to replace the item or reimburse me and I will not hold Nottinghack responsible.
I agree to remove the item as quickly as practical if it becomes unserviceable beyond repair or Nottinghack feels it is no longer required or is surplus to requirements.
If I am unreachable, or cannot remove it within 30 days, I authorise Nottinghack to arrange disposal of the item at their cost.
Nottinghack will not replace items that have been provided on long term loan. Nottinghack may choose to provide a similar tool under its own terms should it be appropriate; in this case (4) applies.
I agree that Nottinghack may, if deemed necessary, place usage restriction on the item via any means they choose. For example RFID access and/or requiring inductions/booking before use which may also affect my own ability to access/use the item.
