To-Do (How can I help?)

See also the Members' Nights list.

Small Tasks

These should be immediately actionable, describable in a single bullet point and take up to 30 minutes for one person to complete:

  • Tidy and clear-out the kitchen cupboard. Should only contain cleaning supplies.
  • G1 hifi shelves: replace the short brackets with long brackets (we have a surplus and the shelf would be more secure).
  • Laser Cutter #1: Connect the air-flow sensor into the safety loop (in series with the lid switch, water flow sensor, etc).
  • Move G6 (Al's room) access point to G11.

Bigger Tasks

These should be immediately actionable, describable in a single bullet point and take 1-3 hours for 1-2 people to complete:

  • Pull additional Cat5 cables from between G11 and G14.
  • Specify and purchase shelving for G14 (full-lengths, 300mm depth).
  • Install spur for G1 water heater.
  • Tidy-up the radio corner.

Infrastructure Projects

More tasks may be found on the infrastructure project pages.

Mini Projects

Projects might require planning or additional purchases before they can be tackled. Some projects will need their own pages and a link from here.

Repair Tektronix oscilloscope

Scope has a power supply fault, and probably needs a capacitor replacement.

Repair Rigol DS1102D oscilloscope

One channel has failed, believed to be in the front-end. Device is out of warranty and Rigol cannot offer replacement parts that would be economically worth-while.

This schematic might help:

Other Stuff

  • Design a test pattern for checking/calibrating the laser cutter
  • Build a webapp to view Space API data
