The space no longer has this unit. All the contents are now in the Team Storage.
What is it? Where is it?
As of the start of June 2014, we have been allowed to use, for a very small monthly fee, a totally unreconstructed toilet on the ground floor of Bizspace Roden street.
This is not a place where we can store projects or raw materials - it is cold, draughty and damp - but we have decided to use is as a store for Infrastructure Materials.
The benefit of this is that there should be less confusion about what otherwise unidentified things are hackable, and what are being accumulated for infrastructure projects. We can also park things that only get used at certain times of year - gas heaters / lighting for EMF camp, etc. Excess storage items (multi-drawer cabinets, bookcase kits, etc.) are also included as it is inconceivable that these will never be used, though we lack room in the current Hackspace.
How we should use this facility
Should NOT be a staging post between the 'space and scrap / disposal except by special arrangement (e.g. the existing wood lathe may go in here before disposal)
Should NOT remove items from general use - i.e. some but not all of the trollies will be stored here.
Items In Store
Notice to users: Please update this list whenever items are added or removed. Once the store has had it's initial fill, a hard-copy should be available in the space, to that people know what has vanished there.
Plastic stacking chairs (spatter-painted) in wheeled cage. N.B. the stack is very high, safe while in the cage, but unstable otherwise. If chairs are needed, they should be removed one at a time from the top of the pile until not rising above the top of the cage.
Air Conditioning unit (Heats / Cools / Dries - ideal for use in the studio over winter)
Large centrifugal fan + 3phase 1.1HP motor for above - dusty area dust management project.
Large red air cylinder - Russell's compressed air infrastructure project.
2 Red gas cylinders - one full, one empty.
Cabbage tray containing long 3phase extension cable.
Cabbage tray containing heavy electrical switchgear ex. distribution cabinet. SCRAP?
Red tub containing 100mm ducting joints / couplings / bends.
4 red fire extinguisher cases + mounting hardware. Possible use for welding rod storage, or may be needed for an outside extinguisher in Hackspace 3.0 otherwise SCRAP?
4 Maplin multi-drawer cabinets (more to be added). Other similar, but not-the-same, cabinets are still in the 'space, and may be sold on or distributed to other hackspaces?
