Thanks so much!

Did maintenance on Buffy the Dust Slayer (our roomba). Now deep charging over near the Leopard room. May need a battery replacement.

  • Wiped down this table and removed a bunch of miscellany
  • Printed 10 copies, double sided, of liability waivers (we were out)
  • Tested all the pens on this table, threw out all the ones that didn’t work
  • Hunted around the space throwing out garbage
  • Swept the woodshop floor and work surface after @Majicj did hero-level trash removal

Looking for something to do tonight? Here are some ideas:

  • Test all the markers and pens on the main tables
  • Find a permanent home for the drills and chargers
  • Wipe dusty surfaces (sewing table, craft table, coffee table)
  • Tidy something else

Fixed the green horizontal metal bandsaw, it wasnt tracking right (turns out if you over tension the blade the frame flexes and the blade comes off, also the guides were not set right), also put a new cord end as the last one didnt have a ground prong and I enjoy the lack of tingly feelings when using power tools.

Fixed our small Ridgid Vac by freeing an extension that got stuck in the hole on top.

The extension stored in its proper receptacle:

Ran Buffy the Dust Slayer (our roomba) tonight after a deep battery charge. The battery charge seems pretty good but something is off with the bumper sensor/bumper. Did not have time to troubleshoot further. I still can’t find Dustin so I’m pretty sure he escaped with a rock hammer down a sewage pipe and is sunning himself on a mexican beach somewhere.

He must be in the place somewhere wedged under something. I looked around a bit but could not find him. Will look more when in later.

Cleaned the white tabletops last night with spray cleaner.

Rearranged, cleaned up and properly set up the Solidworks PC. Also used a compressor to blow out a huge amount of dust from its innards.

I cleaned out the air filteration in the wood shop. It wasn’t a perfect cleaning up, but the baffles inside and the filter got tidied up a bit. Hopefully that’ll help suck out more nasties out of the air.

I painted over two tags on the building, and scrubbed off one from the sign.

I have to say, the sign one felt like personal disrespect. Who does that? It’s not like it’s a corporate logo, clearly it’s somebody’s artwork, even if it is digital in nature. And clearly we’re a community organization. So I also made a police report, and sent in pictures, because fuck those guys. /end rant

Made fruit fly traps - it’s nasty in there. Thought I saw Brundlefly in the corner.
