As far as restroom renovation goes, would it help if I was able to score some toilets?

The ones in there look so grody, just thinking about cleaning them makes me cry.

Let me know.

The "adopt a tool" fund raiser is underway. Please see the blog. Thanks to Paul for setting up the donation bits. We know it's convoluted, but given Orion's limited time to provide updates on TCMakers donation account, it seemed like the best compromise.

There is a auction ending Weds with a dust collector that should work very well for us, so if you can contribute, near term, that would be my recommendation, there's a lack of racking and storage on offer lately, at least that I've found.

Folks, please contribute if you can, there's several items on the shop expansion needs list for sale, in an auction that ends in the morning. The shop manager and I went to check things out today, and there are multiple useful dust collection, and air filtration units available.

The link to contribute is here.

It is a form that you fill out with your intention to donate, you then follow the link to paypal to actually donate, I'm sorry it's kludgey but it takes pressure off the treasurer and allows us to track donations as they happen,

So let's get them happening! See the potential equipment images below.

Thanks

Its related to how the space can accept money for dues and donations via physical plastic, functional to the operation of the space vis a vis infrastructure. (and yes the heat is melting my brain)

Still scratching my head, but I vote that a smart phone for Brandon is a good infrastructure investment. :)
