Space Downgrades

  • Belt sander belt lost a tooth. Then it lost most of the other teeth.
    • Sander belt is on order
  • Someone did a really good job removing the safety from the table saw
    • When you remove safety features put them back.
    • When you leave safety features off, you endanger all other LVL1 members. You increase our insurance risk, and you personally expose every officer and member to liability.
  • The quickest way to get something fixed is to let us know that it is broken! Send broken equipment reports to Broken@lvl1.org
    • This includes supplies like toilet paper and soap!
