Collaboration possibilities

Do-something days

We had a Do-something day on November 10 and got quite a bit of stuff done:

  • Cleaned the Metal Workshop
  • Brought the Metal Trash to the Recyclinghof
  • We got a new steel/metal storage in the corner. Anything shorter than 30cm will fall threw and should get thrown away.
  • The Accessoires for our Disc Grinders got hung up to the wall.
  • The Bench Grinder got a new spot far away from the Metal Lathe.
  • The Drying Oven is now next to the Blast Cabinet and (hopefully) soon the Precious Plastic Shredder.

open discussion (general improvements, etc.)

What did I do since the last plenum?

What am I planning to do until the next plenum?

What went wrong?

  • Not many people attended the do-something day in november :(

What went well?

  • building the Welding Enclosure :-)
  • we're still growing and getting closer to 50 active members!
  • Lot´s of progress has been made and can be seen in the space.

What should get done at the space (new issues)?

  • the router table needs a better router, current one has already broken down once and will surely break again
  • get the waste situation under control
    • better trash bag holders in wood workshop & common room
    • lockable bins so they are not filled up by others while they are standing in front of the building (managers are working on it, but it might become better when the post office at the corner closes)
    • no trash next to the bins!
    • burn untreated wood, bring away the rest
    • people with bulky items or generating lots of trash should at least help bringing it away


  1. Lukas messaged the owners of the trash outside the space (on the backside) and ask them to remove the trash.
  2. Issue opened for the regular trash within the space (#85)
  3. The garbage collection dates will get published, so that every member can put the garbage cans to the collection area.
  4. Every member: Please put the garbage to the big garbage cans when the small ones are full!

  • Plunge Saw commissioning: create documentation, introduction adjustment
  • Planes
    • They should be stored with their blades being withdrawn.
    • In order to make it more beginner friendly (and secure them from getting broken), a storage system needs to be built (including written notices on the tool)

Next Meeting

  • January 11th
