Alex's CNC Mill - Long term loan

As discussed in last meeting. Would like to bring this up again after talking with Alex who owns the machine and trustee James Adams on 8th Feb. --Danspencer101 (talk) 10:33, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

What's been done since last members meeting

  • CNC Slack Channel created.
  • Meeting with Alex to discuss terms of loans:
- Alex says a 3 Year minimum loan period as long as the machine is used as intended
- Potential to loan the machine indefinitely after this 3 year period
- Alex would like to impose an induction (Note the small CNC will remain induction free)
- Machine will be bookable & pay-for-use like the laser
  • Potential space agreed in Hackspace 2.5 metalworking area.
- Approx 1.5m^2 space required for the complete set up.
  • We have a plan for inductions on the large CNC & 3 People prepared to run them.
  • Alex is working on designing the enclosure that will enable flood coolant. Design progress is being shared on the CNC Slack channel. May need some money from the Hackspace to buy polycarbonate sheets and peripherals for this.

What I want from the discussion at this members meeting

  • Go ahead from the trustees to get the machine into the space ASAP.
  • Some agreement on the amount of money available for the enclosure. Initial costings are around £200-£500 ish
  • A guinea pig to test how effective the current induction plan is
