    • Tool Training from members other than the Board of Directors
      • Please help us out and volunteer to do tours and/or tool training
      • This conversation was started because there was a universal desire to have better documentation on how to properly use and maintain the tools and the shop in a major, visible way.
      • A suggestion was made that we form a committee to do this.
        • Update on said committee? This has fizzled out. All we ask is that people help out once in awhile. The Board of Directors are volunteers and have limited time.
