Compressor is ONLINE

The large air compressor is offline. This affects anything that requires it.

We will coordinate maintenance in #hackspace-improvements on slack and resolution recap will be posted here.


@Metal_Janet did maintenance and the compressor is back online. Please thank those who keep our critical infrastructure going (and consider joining them!)


The large compressor is back online. It needed a new belt.

We are implementing a formal maintenance schedule for the compressor. It should have its belt tension checked monthly to prevent this kind of incident, and its oil changed quarterly. There are a few other things on the list as well, such as checking the air filter and the overpressure valve.

Maintenance checks are to be done on the 21st of each month, give or take a few days.

Anyone who is a regular user of the air system is encouraged to join one of these maintenance parties.
