Hey there Dallas Makerspace!
I’m Liam, a member of the Victoria Makerspace up in BC, Canada. I am one of the members in charge of planning/designing/building an RFID Tool interlock system for our space. I am still very early days on the project and mostly reviewing available hardware although I have some hardware to prototype with.
As I understand the Dallas Makerspace has one of these systems functioning in the wild (at least a perusal of your wiki and talk forum leads me to believe so). This type of project seems to have died on the vine at several other makerspaces so I was wondering if any of the members who help maintain your system or built it would be willing to chat with me. It would be very helpful if I can get a feel for what we might be getting ourselves into and how I can avoid creating new problems for our makerspace.
Any time, guidance, or pointers would be very much appreciated.
