@iMakeRobots Started a great thread where he was pretty aghast at the state of our drills.
A couple years back, there was a great consolidation of some of our drills:
Somehow, though, it seems we still have a bunch of Ryobi, even though a few years ago we got rid of a bunch of them. Maybe we keep getting them donated because they aren’t wanted in general . To put it lightly, the Ryobi drills are, in my opinion, total shit.
I’m currently in the process for trying to add another Bosch to our arsenal (it is currently in the space; see the first link for details).
I propose that we rid ourselves of all the battery-based Ryobi drills as a bulk sale on Craigslist (or some other similar method of riding them). I’m happy to facilitate or if someone else wants to take this on, that’s fine too.
I do not expect them to get much money for them; and in 10 minutes of fiddling different batteries, I was unable to get any of them to function. My intention is to sell them, cheaply, as a bulk set.
- In today’s system, how would I go about getting the go-ahead to do this. Does this need to be an AGM policy proposal, or can an informal rough consensus be taken in this?
- Are there any concerns or questions I can answer regarding this plan?
- Yes, get rid of the Ryobi drills
- No, do not get rid of the drills.
