Task Name Description Priority Champion
Populate ToDo List Add a list of things that are needed/wanting to be done in the eRoom. 1 Nate B.
Move fire extinguisher Move it below the light switch. The spot behind the door was fine when there was no door, but now that there's a door, it's awful. 1 ?
New power for archway lights Replace the brick above the ceiling with something rated for that use and not connected by a flexible cord. 2 Nate B.
Fix the Roombas At least one of the Roomba vacuums has a charging problem that we can fix. New FETs are in the "SMT Crap" bin. 1  ?

mount bigass HP PSU under shelf Nearest the door, so it's not in knee-space but the meters are accessible 3 ?
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 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!

Fab Lab

Task Name Description Priority Champion
Rostock part cooling design/get manufactured a ring of microjets to be supplied by shop air. the jets should hit the plastic, not the nozzle 2
Printrbot The Printrbot has been disassembled partially and does not function: (Taken home by Matt H for rehabilitation/destruction by fire) 4 Matt Huber
Decorative Work The Fab Lab currently has a sort of forest theme going on. It would be nice to continue the theme by painting the conduits and stanchions deep brown to simulate vines and trunks, put up more vinyl leaves, and paint the ceiling with either a sky pattern or a forest canopy pattern. 5 Kevin Flory

CNC Zone

Task Name Description Priority Champion
Move Air Dryer Controller The air dryer was moved from its old location in the Metal Shop but the controller for it was not. It needs to be added so that the air lines to the HAAS will not freeze up from under-utilization if the machine has a lot of time between operations. 1 Brian McPherson

Infrastructure Zone

Task Name Description Priority Champion
Rebalance UPS Outlets Things like hardac and the network got unplugged from the UPS at some point. Fix, maybe glue the things in...
Add plug and socket for TIG welder The TIG welder is wired in to the disconnect directly which makes it inconvenient to move around. Ideally, this will utilize a relay with auxiliary, allowing the TIG and chiller to operate from a single switch. 5
dust collector noise baffle Mount Roxul batts inside diy enclosure, position atop dust collector 5
Building ground Tie all the breaker panels to the building beams for ground. Make sure the bus-bar is as well. 4
Conduit Labeling Designate all conduits with the circuits contained therein, and "downstream" (toward-end-device) "flow" arrows. 2
Kiln Power The Kiln Zone has a bunch of new stuff, all running off of the plugs along the east wall. That should really get a breaker to itself. 2
Sewer lines scope our lines, maybe snake them all the way to the street (rent one at pot lock) 2
shower to mop sink convert our shower to a mop sink, it can still be used as a shower in emergencies but it has a strainer so you can dump mop buckets in to it and a hose to fill with. 2
Compressor Vent Fix compressor vent line so it doesn't keep popping off. 2
Treehouse wiring put lights on a motion sensor and maybe place a switch on the stairs so you don't need the breaker. 2
Roof vents some don't one doesn't work, need fixing. At least one needs fumagating

Vent over computer zone needs wiring diagnosed, Wood shop vent needs new belt and realignment? something. Vent over CNC might need new breaker installed, breaker will not reset, doesn't appear to even try, doesn't supply power if held either, 220v pushmatic (maybe 20amp, probably could run much smaller).

Atomic clock GPS, cesium beam, Rubidium, whatever we can get working. Also use it as a timing standard for the equipment. 2 Andrew M, Ben F
Intercom Permanence Wherever the intercom equipment is gonna be, it shouldn't be running on an extension cord. Add outlets to the box in the mezzanine? Mount intercom (new intercom, from Bender) (and amp?) once work is done for classroom (to the wall?) 2
wood shop hose reel replace with better one, should be nearby 2
Add light switches for SW panel Get rid of the conduit run for breaker 9 (just the outlet by the brooms--plug the night light in to the outlet by the fan switch). Replace with larger conduit run to the opposite side of B. Nektar door, and add *proper* switches for West/Rear shop lights 2 Aaron
Front door replacement There is budget for a replacement front door, it just needs to get found, bought, and installed. 1
power for injection molding chiller replace fuses with 40A ones, the cable running it is awg 8 1
Fab Lab air drop should get replaced with hard line down to the wall in the lab. 1 Andrew M
Power Runs take 2 We need more circuit breakers, exactly where is to be determined, but here's a preliminary list
  • 120 near the front door for electric cars and power hungry tools to be used outside
  • Label dust-collector disconnect on north wall
  • Label all outlets with the panel and breaker that serves them
Floor pour in e-overflow Self-leveling floor compound, or just real concrete, north of the treehouse stairs. Oh jeez. 1 Nate B
Projector permanence budget for and hang a projector to point at our new projector screen. 1
Network Prettification re-wire parts of the network so they follow the main trunk and use half-decent cable, Trace, test, and label all cat-5 drops and panels 1 Andrew M
Thermal Insulation The space leaks lots of some energy in winter, let's find some major leaks and get some solutions in place. Luckily some of our members have FLIRs. 1
Task Name Description Priority Champion
Laser Power We need more circuit breakers, this time for the lasers
  • new 20A 120v coming from the N panel
  • something for the Laser Vent so we can stop with the extension cord already
4 Mike F
Craft Room Power We need a 240 disconnect in the craft room
  • new 10A 240v 3 phase coming from the bussbar (check the sewing machine specs if this seems too much overkill)
  • reattach conduit to building and itself, wire is run
4 potlock
re-mount and power i3 sign do the thing 3 potlock
Fix/replace hose reel by cart storage the hose reel leaks a lot, take it apart and see about rebuilding it. It should just need some grease, o-rings, and snap rings. 2 potlock
Relabel compressor disconnect fed from the busbar, the last box on the wall before it goes flexible, needs to indicate phases and amps 1 potlock
fuses for air compressor and sander replace busbar fuses with 70A ones, the cable running it is awg 6 1 potlock
Construct a better security camera system See the status report section of the project page for current progress 6 Mike
Squid cache Our squid cache does things, but not all of them are favorable. Finish setting that up. Action taken was to disable it, it was broken and no one felt like fixing it. 2
Treehouse outlets Replace treehouse outlets so plugs don't keep falling out. 2
compressor noise baffle Mount Roxul batts inside lego-block, position atop compressor exhaust 3 pot lock
Ground the TIG welder The TIG may be damaging itself and causing harmful interference to other electronics in and around the space. It is also an electrocution risk since the ground clamp is floating. The welder is now grounded via conduit to the bus bar, but is still causing interference. The manual recommends earth grounds for the welder and work surfaces to prevent reradiating high-freq. signals everywhere. See

What remains to be done is add a 90* 3/4" copper fitting to the pipe sticking out of the wall (cut pipe near the wall, insert 90, put bit back on) and clamp the ground to that

Fire extinguisher maintenance Update this text with the date the inspection tags expire. ( 11/2016) When they do, take 'em in.

*Laser Zone: CO2 and HALON, Woodshop 10#ABC, Metal Shop 10#ABC, Kiln 10#ABC, Welding 10#ABC *Jewelry 5#ABC,Office Area TBD

Wire remaining security cameras to the <s>box by the Fab Lab new cam server</s> There are some cameras that have been placed but do not have wire run to them, that needs to be rectified. 2
Cord reels are desired in metal shop and tool crib proposed reels 3
Balance breakers now that the fridges and microwave have a new home, the classroom wall is gone, and we want more lights in the space we should really re-asses how we have the breakers' load balanced. 4
re-hang fan removed due to being in the way of lighting we took a fan down, it should get cleaned and re-hung somewhere it would be useful. 2
Air line for sandblaster/welding zone it doesn't move, plumb it in permanently. Same thing with computers, desktops on wifi suck. 3 Evan, Nate W
Air line for laser zone for new cleaner cutting! 3 Evan, Matt G
Power Drops for the Wood Shop take 2 120v on the member storage for the lathe, 120v near sawstop for the small bandsaw (not needed anymore?). 4
Network reinforcement (literally) The rack ears that currently hold the network are tenuously attached to the wall and have very haphazard holes drilled in them. The ears should be ramset into the wall (after the elimination of the wooden backboard that it's currently affixed to. We may also want new ears because as previously said they are very haphazardly drilled. 2
Patch wall hole by sandblaster 1
New air compressor replacement We have member buy-in of up to ~$4500 at least, we want i3 to be willing to put forth money to bring it up to enough to buy a new 15hp screw compressor 4 Evan
Hot water to the shop sink Just needs to be run, not sure what direction though (over?) 2 Konrad B
Bathroom light Do something less-horrible with the abominable light fixture in the scary bathroom 2
Microwave Circuit Get the microwave some dedicated power so it doesn't blow the breaker when the front-door outlet is being used heavily. 1
Network placement round two Once we get the new server there will be no reason to continue using the existing server rack. The contents (the new server, and the UPS) will move underneath the fablab workbench. Power needs to be punched through the wall to give the network access to the battery backup, and possibly ventilation in the doors of the cabinet (but not vented to the shop). 3
VoIP PA system for the shop, and the office space With a functional phone system it would be nice to have a system where the shop can be paged either from the outside or from an interior phone 1
Add all the planned VoIP phones to their designated zones The Laser Cutter, CNC Shop (possibly more) need phones installed 2
VoIP PA system take 2 re-use pa amp and possibly speakers from the over-engineering light to make louder the PA 2
Server replacement--hardac.i3detroit.local Skynet died and it has been proposed to purchase a brand new server, like with a warranty and everything. The current quotes can be found here: Server upgrades 4 Andrew Meyer, everyone else too
Power Runs take 1
  • extend 240 near the garage door for the plasma cutter to be used outside
  • 240 near the garage door as a hardline for the OpenEVSE
  • extend 120 from welding zone to sandblaster
Power Drops for the Wood Shop take 1 220v for the new sander. 4
Network placement The rack that currently holds our switches takes up floorspace that could be otherwise utilized, there are mounting points for all of that gear a foot from them on the wall, they should move there. 3 Evan Allen, Justin Triplett
Network Standardization Our network is currently an amalgamation of 802.3, 802.3af, and what is known as 'dumb' POE. The plan is to make all dumb POE devices 802.3af compliamt or replace them outright, this will simplify wiring and keep everything standard. 2
Move ToDo tasks in here Lots of tasks on the general ToDo list should be in zone-specific lists for better championing 2 Evan

Jewelry Zone

Task Name Description Priority Champion
Additional Electric Add additional circuits to the Jewelry Zone so Foredom, Kiln, Lights and Mini Drill can be going at once). The kiln requires one entire circuit to itself. Everything else dims or stops working when the kiln is on. 6 Leora
Lighting Very dark. Need one light above work area and one above cabinet. Add two bright high ceiling lights 5 Leora
Set Up Rolling Mill Move jewelry cabinet, set up rolling mill stand and bolt to floor, bolt rolling mill to stand. Find room for buffer. 7 Tanya

Laser Zone

Task Name Description Priority Champion
Reconfigure Bumblebee Desk The scrap material storage area under the desk is awful and ends up a pile of crap way too quickly. The zone items stored on the floor under the desk don't necessarily need to be stored in bins there, since the set of drawers by Wolverine is now pretty functional zone storage. The whole area under the desk could be rebuilt as better material storage for small-to-medium sized sheet goods. 6
Add proper limit switches to Bumblebee Currently, the laser only knows it's position in software, based on initial homing. If this glitches for some reason, which it can be prone to do, the gantry will crash, which is Bad. The functionality for proper "STOP when you reach this point" limit switches exists on the laser controller so this could be done with 4 limit switches and some wiring--some of which will have to run through the flexible wire bundle that moves with the gantry. 1

  • Give Storage Plot List a form and semantify it and link to member boxes.
  • EAP: Reformat dates
  • EAP: sorttable/sorting order on transcluded queries - probably the user table generation
  • EAP: make user tables and trainer tables have prettylinks
  • EAP: add comment on authorized users table that ZCs should email wiki@ if they can't edit
    • Alternatively, make it unrestricted until someone goes dumb and tries to add themselves without actually getting authorized first
  • EAP: Figure out how to add second trainer to lasers
    • Tried to make the trainer field parallel to the owners field, but it isn't working. It could be because the trainers field is in a multiple-instance field. Also, when formatting for display, the owners field uses an arraymap, but since the trainers property is a subobject, everything is weird. I don't remember how to call an arraymap within a subobject declaration, or even if it can be done. Everything is confusing and future jamie should take pity on this jamie and not be mad at her :-(
  • Meeting minutes: Use template subclusion to auto-populate with old business, previous action items, current space projects, even zones and sigs maybe
    • See if wikibot can help with this
  • Make ToDos editable with forms
  • Define a print-only CSS attribute (or something) that makes equipment pages with "auth required=yes" visually distinct when printed
  • Learn cargo and see if it's worth rewriting all the SMW stuff in a more database-like format
  • Find a plugin/addon that does what RecentChangesScraper does, so we can get rid of that festering pile of hack.
  • Talk pages would be more useful if they indicated LOUDLY that they exist, or that they have new content on them, cuz on our wiki they're so rare most of us forget to look for 'em
  • zone infoboxes (and possibly the table of zones) could use a spot for slack channel

Adding content

  • Make a page for the mug press in the vinyl zone
  • make an accurate floorplan / map
    • Make map area a letter/number grid, would require a change to the map
  • Make a wiki page for the bunk couches and add Category:Group Projects tag
  • Update Parking_Tickets_and_Parking_Permits page
    • Much outdated information
  • Make i3 page on real wikipedia
  • Make wiki zone picture accurate
    • iframe embed of main page? or simply a screenshot
  • Add legal advice documentation-upload official forms, write up history of who contacted a lawyer when and why (Jamie and Marie)

Fixing broken things

  • Vinyl zone - vinyl cutter isn't in the auto-generated equipment table
  • Andrew Meyer cannot add authorised users to his zone's equipment (like the 3D_Printer_-_Rostock_MAX), but can add trainers
    • The text-entry boxes are greyed-out for the authorised users, and white for the trainers
    • Looks like a permissions issue
      • Wiki accounts allowed to add users to these lists should have access to both in general
  • make SMW error icon mouse over-able like it's supposed to
    • Jamie has advice from the SMW mailing list somewhere in her inbox.


  • Go through In_the_Media for broken links, find content (on, point to archive copy or pull a local copy (into a subpage?). Intern?


  • Glitter cursor
  • Custom theme??


  • Figure out why we get a 502 after images upload
    • Also get 502 when making regular edits
    • Maybe all these error messages are related?</s> 502 is fixed, and they're not related.
