I am not sure that the brain trust has said anything about this, a few people have said they want to do welding and metal work.
I’ve said this over and over: If we had the space it would be great to do every activity people wanted, but there isn’t the space right now, we need to focus on getting the membership numbers up to allow us to expand and create a metal working area, and make space for the wood workshop to grow.
The directors made the decision at the time to ask for the welder to be removed based on the fact that you and Joe completely ignored the donations and loans rules and just brought it to the space and left it as an obstruction in the space.
However part of that ruling was that there even with application for donation or loans there is no where appropriate in the space for welding to take place on a regular basis. Even with screens the flashes into the rest of the space would be distracting at best.
If you really think it would be a valuable machine in the future of the space, then why not ask the @directors for permission to store it, and ensure it’s put away safely in the snug until we have a place suitable for it’s use?
