I love the Makerspace. I come I do my thing and I go. Great environment. I drive an hour to get here so I like to get right to work. Last night I came to get some stuff knocked out super late and noticed the following:
all of the orbital sanders were missing and I needed an orbital sander for my work. plenty of sand paper, and the festool carts were around but i could not find the orbital sanders.
It is the holiday season and everyone is rushing through projects. Clean your machine when you are done. I noticed lots of scraps around the band saws, evidence that dust doors had not been opened on machines. lots of shavings at the jointer. All that being said there were a couple guys still working when i showed up and they took care of their areas, just make sure you are tackling yours. When you show up to do work build in some time for cleanup in your schedule.
If you are using the carts and have left for the day please take all of your stuff off of the carts. others may need to use them.
I guess my biggest gripe is the sanders being missing / not where they normally are. I don’t know if they are broken, being used by another department, or borrowed, but i find it frustrating when tools are missing. If they have a new storage location i would like to know where they are at. Thanks, Micheal
