  • Laser cutter is here! -> needs some work
  • New chop saw still needs 1-2 weeks as the received one needs to be replaced because of a broken part

  • most urgent (besides the Tor 4 issues): #191 - commissioning the new chop saw
  • Lukas would appreciate any feedback on a new T-shirt design - who would buy one? :-)
    • Rolf has a source for getting textiles printed

Please share your experiences with just about anything - the more people are creating wiki content together, the better!
=> have a look at current "wiki" labeled issues where help is especially welcome :-)

Also check out current projects that are looking for collaborators if you're a team player!
