Thankyou 2019 Edition

(Drew Spriggs) #1

A huge thankyou to @riumplus for his work in swapping over the laser cutter PC’s yesterday. It’s been a job that nobody had done in over 12 months, and now it’s done and upgraded it should make the entire laser cutting process much faster and less frustrating.

Another thankyou to @wixted and @Svenska for their work in securing the side panel on the shipping container arches yesterday. Although the ‘cyclone’ we were getting never happened, the wind was enough to rip a few of the eyelets out and had a pretty high risk of it all blowing away.

That reminds me… when I organised the first of these container domes, I asked, and was advised their wind rating is approx 150km/hr with the fabric properly installed (or approx a category 3 cyclone) , and that in the event of extreme winds like that , we could reduce risk of failure by unbuckling the roof fabric from one side and pull it off the steel structure entirely, and then although things would now get wet underneath, the roof would not be at risk of being blown apart.
