K40 air assist plumb in the air assist on the laser to the closest air drop above it 1

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
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
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. 3
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
Roof vents one doesn't work, need fixing.

Wood shop vent needs something (motor?).

Atomic clock GPS, cesium beam, Rubidium, whatever we can get working. Also use it as a timing standard for the equipment. 1 Andrew M, Ben F
wood shop hose reel replace with better one, should be nearby 2
Front door replacement Find a replacement door, probably frame, and install it 1
power for injection molding chiller replace fuses with 40A ones, the cable running it is awg 8 1
Power Runs We need more circuit breakers, exactly where is to be determined, but here's a preliminary list
  • 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. 2 Nate B
Projector permanence hang a projector to point at our new projector screen. 1
Classroom power hang one or both power cord drops in the classroom 1
Network Prettification re-wire parts of the network so they follow the main trunk and use half-decent cable. 1 Andrew M
Thermal Insulation The space leaks some energy in winter, let's find some major leaks and get some solutions in place. Luckily some of our members have FLIRs. 1

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

Recurring Tasks

Task Name Description Frequency
Check chiller water levels Check water levels in chillers and refill with distilled water as needed (see the gauge on the back of the chiller) Potlock
Clean chiller dust filters Remove the chiller cases and clean out their dust filters Potlock
Cull scrap materials Sort scrap materials in grey drawers and under Bumblebee's desk into "Usable - keep as is", "Usable - needs trimming” and "Too small to keep.” Throw the latter in the dumpster, and for pieces that need trimming, cut unuseful sections off with the band saw. Sort pieces to be kept into their respective drawers or back under the desk. Guidelines: keep wood items larger than ~50in² and acrylics larger than 15in². Smaller colored acrylics may be kept too. Other materials, use your judgement or ask. Potlock
Thoroughly vacuum out debris Vacuum out all of the debris that accumulates in the back and sides of the cutting chamber, as well as all of the debris that has fallen below the laser bed. Potlock
Sweep underneath each laser Sweep out whatever debris has fallen on the floor underneath each laser. Some of this might be useful tools or other items that have gotten lost, so look things over before immediately tossing everything in the trash. Potlock
Clean dust filters on intake fans Remove and clean the small dust filter on the 120mm case fan on the left side of each laser. Monthly?
Clean optics and level the bed Please only attempt these if you've been trained to do them. As needed

Long Term

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?



  • 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.
