The metal shop committee has decided to get rid of the green metal bandsaw. Its frame is too warped to be used in for welding, and thanks to the new Machine Shop bandsaw @Billiam has lent to the space, it is finally time to pull the trigger on this. This tool belongs to the hackspace, so we are thinking of going with the following process:
- If another department within the hackspace wants the bandsaw, this will get top priority. You can hold it whenever you want in the hackspace, but it cannot be held in the welding shop or the DMC.
- Failing that, if a member wants to purchase the bandsaw, they can make a bid for it in this thread right now. Know that it is out of parallel 1/4" off in a 3" cut.
- Failing that, if no one wants it in 3 days, I will make a Craigslist post, donating the money to the hackspace.
- If it doesn’t sell, the band saw will be sold for scrap metal.
If there are any comments, queries, questions, or concerns, please raise them in this thread. Thank you very much!
