The following list is an attempt to offer up suggestions of tasks that could be accomplished in the various zones by people interested in helping out.

Feel free to take charge of one or more of these items as your time and expertise allow. If you have taken charge of a task, please put your name into the field next to the task.

Partslaser software Spreadsheet/database, label printing, find-a-part interface  ?  ?
Cabinet map Until Partslaser is operational, an easier way to update https://www.i3detroit.org/wiki/File:NewERoomWithOverlays-output.jpg would be nice. 2  ?

surplus equipment ownership determine ownership of LeCroy scope, old HP logic analyzer, magnifying rolling lamp 1 Nate B.
simpson microohmmeter refurb readings aren't consistent, maybe because the internal nicad pack is missing? 4 Evan?
NTSC vectorscope repair PSU problem? 4 ?
mount tek rack stuff on e-cart the new tm506 and sorensen PSU could use better mounting on the rolling cart 2 ?
cull crap on topmost shelves either side of the window, there's a bunch of stuff we never touch, that space could be better used. 3 Nate B.
New test-lead rack for scope probes the existing one was adequate but is a bit rough on probes, a "real" pomona rack would be nice, possibly https://www.zoro.com/pomona-test-lead-holder-black-10-slots-4408pom/i/G7586774/ 1 ?
Clean/repair switch on Ted's PSU Ted brought in this adorable little HP power supply but the gauge is flaky and I think it's just a bad or dirty range selection switch. Needs a good check-out, though. Spikes bad. 2 ?
Clean other HP HV PSU Scored a nice HP PSU at auction that seems to work but the pots and switches are flaky. It's in overflow with a tag on it. Have at! 2 ?
Floor decluttering Cull the storage under the benches. Everything left should be in a proper tote with proper label. 2 Thank you Brandon!
