I agree, but since I broke (it broke itself ok) the orbital sander, currently leaves just the 'mouse' sander. I have no idea how to use that one (how to attach pads, online suggests Velcro or spray glue?). On the overhand, I forsee the bandsaw being a lot more of a general tool for everyone. That said, we do have a smaller scroll saw (no scrolls or saws though). @bingojackson Might have an opinion on these points?
I've been on the lookout for a while for this. Local to me is somewhere that sells to the public. Delivery is an issue, so sheets need to be small enough for my mini car (which is smaller than the current mini). That or figure out how to attach to my bike.
Either way, I will keep my eyes open. Members might have better knowledge of the area and places that sell to the public + not extortionate delivery rates. Issue for a little bit down the road, not urgent.
Depending on space and how it all comes together, was thinking it would be fine in the main area (new place, not current). As we expand and collect more junk, urm stuff, we can re-evaluate then.
I was just thinking on a practical level. Me -> Workshop, vs Me -> The Bursar (fetch the frog pills) -> workshop.
Happy to do it either way.
Next time I'm around, will need to go thru the heavy metal collection then.
I was thinking we had a set of generic safety for randomers, with the option of just letting veterans get their own preferred stuff. These seen to get favourable reviews and works out at less than a quid a pop. Unsure how durable they are, but for the price I think it is worth trying (objections? else I will get them**)
Hopefully I have everything under wrap. I was just trying to be explicit and open in my plans. Multiple comms channels and no one having access to my mind (not even me at times)
** How is post/delivery to the space currently handled? If I order anything, shall I order to the space or bring them in? Don't want to be a burden (well more than currently ) to the grounds keepers (@AndyHughes86 + @p0welly)
