Shop status

The shop is still there. Karen went to the shop this month and updated the new power strips to use the available outlet. Because of this, we now have power again in the classroom section. With the old PDUs retired, we anticipate improved uptime.

Karen noted that the CNC Alley area has been used for storage to a point where it was impassable and none of the tools could be accessed. Ben spent a few hours working in the area to reclaim the space and began a new Trash Square and documented items being considered for removal on the Discord.

Ben also assembled and configured a donated 3D printer, an Ender 3 Max.

During this month, Nicole reconfigured the old ham corner so that it was accessible and set up the shirt press there. Thank you, Nicole! Zeb also constructed a new scrap wood bin. Thank you, Zeb!

Nicole offered to host a vinyl cutter class and demonstrated how to use the US Cutter (large scale cutter) to some folks who came. She also brought some folks visiting from Ukraine, very cool! Thank you again, Nicole!

Old Business/Action Item Review

COVID-19 status review - Open Hack closure status

CDC has issued a notice for Lane County recommending masks indoors. It is not a mandate, but a science-based recommendation. There have been no confrontations reported at the shop under our current policy requesting people wear masks when possible and respect the right of others to wear masks without criticism. We will continue to recommend mask usage.

The federal government plans to retire emergency declarations related to the pandemic in May if the current trends continue.

Ben will contact the membership to see if anyone is interested in cleaning up and configuring the 3d printer for checkout

We will put this effort on hold temporarily due to workload limitations.

Piotr will inform the blinds group that we're going to pursue a new course per the previous conversation


Ben send out a prompt to the membership seeking someone to take on the task


ACTION: Ben will Follow up post seeking laser work volunteers.
