Metal Cause Meeting - 2/6, 2pm

Guys, I’m getting the next stage of plans together for the metal shop, so I’d love if we can get as many of you there as possible so we can discuss the plans going forward. They roughly involve:

*monthly professionally-run workshops (welding, turning, milling)
*monthly member-run inductions (welding, turning, milling, drilling)
*interlocks and how they’re going to work
*issues around maintenance of equipment/large amount of things getting wrecked continually/equipment champions.

*implementation of a rolling $200 monthly budget for inductions (all of that money will come back to the cause + interest, and members will be paid for the induction they run)

If you know you will be unable to attend the meeting, please send
through the following proxy form before the meeting to


I, of (insert address), being a member of the association, appoint
(insert name) of (insert address) as my proxy to vote for me on my

Some very good discussion was had around interlocks, ‘policing’ our equipment and working out what we’re going to spend our excess grant money on, including potential things such as press brakes, guillotines, hot/cold saw. I’ll do some looking over the next week and see what I can come up with.
