Hack the Space Days/8th-10th Feb 2019
We are holding a Hack the Space weekend from 18:00 on Friday 8th February till 18:00 Sunday 10th February (some jobs starting at 13:00). During this time no normal project work will be happening. It's all hands on deck improving our space!
Our Hackspace is only as great as our members make it, so please join us. Regardless of if you can only spend 30 minutes or the whole weekend at the space; during this time any, and all, help will be greatly appreciated.
This wiki page is interactive and is intended to detail exactly what needs doing so that we're all working towards the same goals. If you know of anything that needs fixing or looking at, feel free to add it to the list! In theory, someone could turn up at 3 am and complete some jobs off this list without anyone there to tell them what to do. You will see the page gradually change as the weekend progresses as more teams & members populate it.

Thank you to all volunteers :)
"Active" projects have been moved to sheet storage over the weekend. All others have been moved to downstairs for a month.
Portable appliance testing needs to be carried out to bring us in line with safety regulations. This job will be starting on Saturday. It is simple to do and needs no special skills beyond being able to properly use and read the test equipment. Demonstrations may be available from James Adams or James Taylor of Safety Team and Trustee fame.

Producing a Checklist of tools
Producing a list of tools is a task that can be worked on if you find yourself alone or you are working on PAT testing during the weekend, (see also Portable Appliance Testing Records at http://nhpat.ocatelle.xyz/login/). There is already a wiki page for this list that can be updated by anyone :)
The wiki page for the list is located here: Tool list
Dust shoe for CNC Mill
This is a low priority task that could be worked on if alone in the space during the shutdown. It will probably require some 3D Modelling skill.
The mill could potentially be fitted with a removable dust shoe that has an attachment for the hoover. Something that looks something like this: http://www.cncrouterparts.com/universal-cnc-dust-shoe-p-396.html
Tool Storage Rack
The collets and tools are currently sitting loose on the stepper controller under the CNC PC monitor. I would like to get some kind of tool rack made to better organise the area. The rack should include provision space for more tools to be added in the future.
- Reorganise comfy area including rewiring of speakers
- Electrics within the workshop (replacing lights) etc
- 2.5 jobs TBC
Move the Piano
There has been some talk on slack about moving the Piano into the comfy area. One plan is to make space in the comfy area by re-homing or removing the radiogram.
Broken Toilet Seat
One of the toilet seats is broken and could do with being replaced. Its the cubicle furthest from the door to the bathroom. On closer inspection the seat isn't broken but the lid is. Could use replacement or removing the lid just to tidy it up a bit.
There is a new shiny lid on the toilet now as this has been completed by some anonymous kind soul
The hot tap in the upstairs toilet is leaking. This could do with being looked at before it gets any worse by someone with plumbing skills.
