BOTLab committee meeting 28 October 2014

  1. Tidy the Space Day
  2. Organising the Bike Space
  3. does anyone know Dave pc case man
  4. Health & Safety including:
    1. Gangways
    2. Adequate operator area for fixed equipment and for associated onlookers
    3. Trailing extension leads near static power tools e.g the lathe & bandsaw
    4. Lack of fire extinguishers. We use flammable solvents near a hot extruder on the 3d printer, and are probably going to use paraffin or white spirit to clean cycle parts near the laser cutter.
  5. Network situation:
    1. Hosting provider - VPS (Barney)
    2. In-space network and server cupboard proposal (Barney and Alaric)

Apologies: Jamie Loudon, Richard Sewell, Russell

  • Tidy the Space day:
    • Date to be arranged - before Christmas party ⇒ end November
    • Need to do a tip run, probably - at the weekend it'll be quite busy ⇒ maybe sort things out for someone to take - various people volunteer to help transport stuff to the tip
    • Action: MV will make a Doodle for the date and email the list
    • When: decided to be a weekend daytime rather than evening - one day should do it given that it's fairly tidy at the moment
    • What to do on the day? Make a page on the wiki for members to add
    • Pillar drills: we have 2, DH says one was donated by UWE, the other is TS' - apparently Tarim has a use for one at the Pervasive Media Studios
    • Noted that Richard S and Jamie L offer to remove some of the equipment
  • Bike space organisation:
    • NC originally suggested this - he observed that many hackspace members are interested in bikes, but there isn't really enough space at the moment to do work on it so
    • Equipment: NC's old bike stand, a bench and a vice - existing electronic equipment should suffice?
    • Hand tools: we probably have quite a bit, but we may need to buy some bike-specialist tools - NC estimates £50-£100 outlay
    • JW concerned about use of solvents near laser cutters etc.
    • Members present vote to spend £50 of Hackspace funds on tools - NC to buy tools
    • Extensive discussion about space layout:
      • Space immediately on the right after coming into the room will be turned into metalworking/bike space
      • Storage tower to move to the right of the sink?
  • “Dave the PC case man” query?
    • No-one knows! To be traced otherwise
