*Team updates*
Report from Andrew W:
Wood working team. (mainly it has to be said Bob)
Bench donations,
School woodworking desk has been retained and improved, sanding, replacement timber in the tool well, Vice lubricated,  some of the work by persons unknown, (thanks persons unknown), other bench looks useful but not right now as it compromises working space and is an odd hight.

4 Planer thicknesser inductions (which lost its height wheel but has since been fixed)
Planer blades have been replaced..
Yellow "bomber" band saw fixed with external mounted switching.
Incorporated the secondhand band saw obtained by Russell (thanks Russel), Startrite is still waiting for trustees / metalwork team to fix.( how long now?).
Also did work to partially remedy the Electrics in the Spray booth, still needs action.
Josh made some very useful tool donations which we have been sorted and put away. Thanks Josh.

Hearty welcome home to the third Bosch drill, missing since before I joined that hackspace (I am surprised we didn't get postcards frankly).

Electronics (i don't think we really have a team but some comments anyway AW.).
Area is being left in a mess and key tools vanishing, more than normal in my experience.
Please be more public spirited here electronics people.

Large sander and dust extractor are sharing a socket. Additional socket ideally needed
Once door access is set up downstairs, bike storage can be moved downstairs, and sheet storage can be located.
Door access is still waiting for some parts to be ordered.
Once accessible work can be done at other times too
The necessary parts for the access system are expected to be ordered in the next few days
Laser extraction: Andrew is contacting Bizspace about permission to put an extraction pipe on the outside of the building.
Once laser cutter moved, woodworking can move into the laser area.
Plan is for laser, 3D printer, CNC mill and Novaturn in same room downstairs.
Bob suggests alternative plans to put bicycle storage and donations downstairs. (edited)
