Makerspace Members Meeting 8.27.2019 Notes: Joe Sheehan
Approximately 17 in attendance
Electrical: We got a new quote that's still pretty high. We had asked about providing some labor and if we can get agreement on that it could save 1/3 -1/2 the labor costs.
Ventilation - We have asked a contractor what they would charge to install the required ventilation. We haven't seen a quote. He told Brian it typically costs $400 a day for labor.
Ceramics - We have had several offers of kilns, and an offer for a wheel and some tooling. We don't know what the power requirements and would need to figure out how to pay for any upgrades we need.
Grants - We reapplied for the Partnering with Abi Grant asking for $1500 for startup costs. We also applied for a City of Berea grant asking for $5000 for a Sawstop table saw and dust collector.
Library - Brian setup a book library and is requesting that for now the books stay at the makerspace.
Door access - The last part for the swipe pass door lock system will be here soon.
Slack - Good place to ask questions. Brian will send out a sign up link.
Setup - Thanks for those folks who have been setting things up. If someone moves the stuff you setup work it out (maybe on slack)
Fire safety - the bolt on the back door is open so it can serve as our emergency exit. We will be removing it. please close that door completely behind you.
Setup continues - 3D printers are up and running.
Lighting - We will be upgrading our lighting to LED in order to save money.
Richmond Register Article - Look for it on the front page of there B section Labor Day weekend.
