katemonkey [8:04 PM] Members' Meeting! Minutes: Kate Attendees: Bob, Sarah, Froggy, Daniel, Russell, Vicky, Ian, Howard, Jayne, Ulwin Chairing: Russell No announcements or events coming up No problem with the previous minutes Team Updates: Laser Team: Laser usage in December 2017 was: 119 hours, 56 mins, 52 seconds Income generated: £350.94 New users inducted: 9 members Current induction waiting list: 2 members (both of whom have been contacted) During December we had the following problems with the machine: - Z micro-switch arm bent, causing the bed to come up too high and the nozzle to plough through the bed - Issues with the LaserCut not starting up correctly for "LaserUser". This is still not resolved, but a "LaserUser2" account has been created as a workaround - Intermittent issues with Lasercut not importing DXF files, but generally works on a second attempt, after restarting the application Membership Team: Membership currently stands at: 574 members (as at 31/12/17) During December there were 14 new members and 12 members became ex-members Open Nights continue to be busy. We even had a few visitors on the one between Christmas and New Year. Woodworking Team: Dust extraction to the radial saw now set up We need a new blade for the radial saw - Bob is sorting Financial update - waiting for Matt to return No awareness of impending doom Hackspace 2.5: Still building shelves in the members' storage - will be done next Tuesday After that, they might do their own initiative Bob: Obvious thing to do after is fitting the doors Russell: Moving the blue room downstairs might be a good idea Bob: We need to decide how we're going to do access control through the area Russell: Where are we on that? Daniel: We're at the stage where we need to start designing boxes for it, but Matt knows the most about that Russell: Any help needed for boxes? Daniel: Maybe. We're not sure what we're doing yet, but we'll work on it. Bob: What is the plan? Russell/Daniel: RFID on both ends, in and out, Bob: The main access will be the back internal door, yes? We need to mend that door due to the damage from the break-in Russell: I believe it was a problem with the fitting of the bottom bolt - it needs a piece making for the extension In all of the doors, there's a narrow door and a wide door - the narrow door has throw bolts, and with that door, the bolt doesn't go down to the floor But it needs the reinforcement taking off and then it needs to be reinforced properly Bob: We'll do that next then. Daniel: What about the laser extraction yet? Russell: We don't have a full plan yet - we do have someone we'll contact There are two options - come up and across to join the existing ducting It goes to the roof (edited) Or goes through the wall and straight up Bob: We might need planning permission for that - they may need to be told That might be a BizSpace issue, though AOB put onto the agenda by Mouse, but he can't be here tonight. But we can still discuss it. https://wiki.nottinghack.org.uk/wiki/Talk:2018-01-03_Agenda Issue about theft of tools and how to deal with it Ian: More of the tools need to be marked clearly with Nottingham Hackspace Bob: Is it serious? I know it's irritating... Froggy: People knicking expensive drills is a bit serious Russell: Someone took the refillable bit of the gas blowtorch Daniel: Could it be that someone chucked it out thinking it was disposable? Russell agrees Ian: Do you think people are taking tools to borrow and just not returning them? Russell: It could be. Bob: There were two Bosch drills and now there's one Bob: the Dewalt impact is still here Kate: Do a message out with a tool amnesty - if you borrowed it, it's okay, just bring it back Kate: And then spraypaint/engrave everything Bob: At the same time, though, £200 a year isn't too shocking... Russell: The knock-on effect is that we're less inclined to buy nicer tools Froggy: We've also had thefts of money - the laser shop, donatebot, donation tins Vicky: Is the problem with cameras just that people don't want to be on camera? Kate: Yep Bob: Spraypainting and engraving would void warranties Froggy: do we ever actually look at warranties, though? Bob: The Woodworking team will then do it - what colour do we use? Russell: Any other business? Kate: Spraybooth: We're taken out the extension leads, we've taken out the heaters DON'T PUT THEM BACK IN Bob: Published the date for the sorting out the sheet storage, but we haven't sent out the email Can we add in the tool amnesty, post the date, and get it sorted?
