Automotive meeting is scheduled for Oct 30th @ noon. It will be the required Chair election as well.
Tom (@TLAR) is stepping down; I’ve decided I apparently hate myself and like a challenge. If elected, first orders of business getting more involved:
- get an RFID on the lift (we have almost everything to be able to get it setup; the more egregious offences in automotive recently are heavy lift users)
- evaluate and deal with some of the equipment that has been left in auto for one reason or another (like the piston head grinder; last I heard it doesn’t even work and it was brought by a member. I’d like to confirm both and see what to do with it)
- find a monthly time to make meetings more regularly scheduled
- Put some markings on the floor around the machine shop egress that goes into automotive marking the fire zone to mitigate cart obstructions (we’ve been called out by the FM for this, I’d like to not get on their bad side)
Things I’d like to see discussed:
- Something to help those grandfathered before auto 101 was required understand some of the more important shop rules. There is no signage for the biggies, and some are not obvious (like the egress blocking rules, pulling into the bays completely, etc). I’d suggest either more signage, or we can make a little crash-course video/online training (<30min, just the important stuff) that people can peruse on their own time.
- Discuss a potential sponsorship for the commonly replaced items (
10mm sockets don’t existwe totally never loose sockets). I’d talked with Summit at one point and I was asked to go in at a time to meet with one of the higher ups in this area. I think it’s something worth pursuing.
