A Happening Weekend at the Space

As many of you might have known, this weekend we had our monthly space improvement day.  Thank you to everyone that came out and helped make the space even more awesome!  Here are a few of the neat improvements that happened this weekend.

  • Brant and Tiffany finished putting up the new general member storage shelves, now with cart parking!  If you would like a spot on the new shelving contact one of them to get a shelf.

  • While he was at it Brant got motivated enough to to put some new wheels on the the rolling stairs.  That’s right, the rolling stairs now… roll!

 

 

  • The space received a new wood lathe and belt sander courtesy of Joe R.

  • The wood shop got a new table… also on wheels!  It’s great for the planner and router, but also makes for a handy work surface.  Just make sure you clean up after yourself!

  • spaceimprovement-14Vishal made us some fantastic tool height adjustment devices (read: stools)!  Now our members  can use the drill press without the added thrill of wood spinning directly into their exposed jugular!

 

 

 

  • There’s one for the forge too, so vertically challenged members (read: not 6′something giants) can now benefit from a full range of motion on the anvil.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Meanwhile the forge master spaceimprovement-18himself, Dan, used some ‘forged curvy bits’ to create a stand for the hose on the aluminium furnace.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Ed built a table for the new router.  It now rolls nicely into its home, alongside it’s larger sibling in the Kuka room.

  • See that vacuumed floor?  Yeah that was Ed too.

  • Or perhaps you noticed the cable running across that floor.  Chris, Brant and Dan made some more progress towards getting us some wired internet at the space…some.

 

  • And naturally,  Charles did what Charles does best…organize! His contributions included a new drill bit organizer, a new air compressor tool rack, and a more organized tool box.

  • The craft lab storage room got the start of a makeover as well.  More progress to come, we promise.  But it was a long and exhausting weekend, so at least it’s a bit cleaner.
