Big public thanks to metal-shop Cause Leader Drew Spriggs for getting us all this new equipment and tools for the shop. For those who haven’t been out to the metal-shop for a while, since Drew became Cause Leader he has acquired for the shop a heavy duty horizontal band saw, a large stand-mounted drill press, new grinders, vertical linisher plus lots of belts and grinding disks, an engine hoist, bins and brooms and more space in the shop. When I arrived this morning, there are two trolley loads of hand and machine tools ready waiting for assembly and installation around the shop including a new hydraulic press, hand tools, impact sockets for the air driver, a large industrial-sized tool chest fully loaded with all the day-to-day general tools everyone regularly uses in the shop and a new motor for the Hafco lathe which will give us two running lathes again, among other items in boxes ready for setup. These are all essential shop items we really need and they get a lot of use. Thank you, I’m sure everyone who uses the metal-shop appreciates the growing range of tools and equipment we are fortunate to have at our disposal for use on our projects at the space.
