Equipment Report

  • The prusa repair is fully armed and operational
  • Earplugs are in the woodshop

Please make sure that you review the instructions and manual and ask for the training prior to using the equipment. QUIT REMOVING THE SAFETY GUARDS AND RAILS FROM THE EQUIPMENT. if your project is too big for the table saw, make a smaller project. Community safety is more important than your personal convenience

  • Please give me as much information as possible; i/e links to websites. Consumables are difficult to find sometimes and I am not a mind reader!
  • If your project doesn't fit on your shelf or in large member storage, please take it off site. The boneyard isn't your own personal storage shed.
