Shed Re-Organisation, New Crib Room

We mark a milestone event. The new Crib Room is in place and will be handed over for our occupancy from Monday.

Our transition plan requires the shed to be closed to production work from Monday 31st August until resumption of normal operations on Thursday 3rd September.

All rostered members are asked to attend during these days to help out under the direction of John Berry and Graeme Harris, as follows:

Monday 31st August & Tuesday 1st September

• Immediately following Monday morning tea all tables and chairs will be removed to the lawn area for cleaning before being placed into the crib room.

• Commence rearrangement of workshop benches and machinery according to the most feasible option, as per proposed floor plan attached and comments below.

• Clean up (ie vacuuming workshop and storage areas, model room, office, kitchen)

• Sorting out the back store - select tools to retain and tool to dispose of.

• Sort out the alcove where the personal storage boxes are located.

• Finalise current upgrade to dust extraction.

• Allocate jobs for storage projects - we need to make better use of our storage space - item 4 will help.

Wednesday 2nd September

• Finalise unfinished work from list above.

• Surplus tools not needed in the shed will be available for sale to members from 10:00am.

• Tools not sold on this day will be disposed of.

Proposed Floor Plans – Two Options

• The only variation between the two is the arrangement around the sliding door entry.

• Placing machinery along the south wall enables easy extension of the dust extraction system.

• Although there is no increase the number of benches the new arrangement provides a much safer workspace around machines and access to both sides of some benches.

• The existing kitchen area will be set up for metal work activities.

• We will implement a "clean bench rule" meaning, all work is to be cleared from benches at the end of your session. Any work left on benches may be removed from the shed.
