Meeting Agenda:

  • Chair election / pro-tem position (per last meeting, if elected to the board I’d step down)

Maintenance TODOs:

  • install new metal mesh for blue filter
  • fix powder coating oven (thermal runaway)
  • clean
  • classes as needed

Add finishing the LED light install over the bandsaw. Bulbs wouldn’t fit with long tombstones, I bought short ones but had to use some in the pantry. Do we have a supply of short tombstones now?

@procterc I don’t know whether to take the silence as acceptance or abject horror

Both, I’ve got Tim to keep the vice position and asked Randy to be a second vice.


Sheetcam offered an update from V7.09 to V7.11 what problems will happen if this is done?

It will break the runas tool until it can be updated by infra

Unknown; likely going to be a “find out.” Typically minor version updates aren’t likely to break things (7.xx to 7.yy versus 7.x to 8.x)


Good to know
