< edit > Started a google doc to brainstorm and list specific information to include on signs around the shop. Anyone using the link should be able to leave comments on the doc itself, but feel free to reach out. < / edit >
So I’m still fairly new to the Makerspace and Talk but it looks like there’s a lot of agreement that equipment breaking down is an issue. I saw on another thread discussing this that having reminders around the shop could help, and I agree. I’d rather have a sign reminding me of the things I need to check before I start, rather than forgetting something simple and breaking/damaging something.
So all that said, I would like to volunteer my time and skills in graphic design to create that signage (if you guys want it that is). I think the first step would be figuring out what information would be most useful and which machines need it the most. Maybe some general reminders for the doors like:
“Remember to report issues to Talk, don’t just leave a note”
“Check the dust extractor before you start and before you leave to avoid overfilling”
Definitely happy to collaborate on this!
