We had a big clean-out of the workshop on 2/11/2011.

The messiest the workshop should look when there's nobody in it. Another view

We'd really rather not do this again (see Faceplant and Rules), so I also propose some items to be thrown out by Tuesday 22/11/2011 (see below).


1. Giant satellite dish, without horn. This was kept on the balcony until cleared for fire safety.

2. Small satellite dish with arm. As previous. #OccupyLSX expressed an interest, but didn't turn up in two weeks.

3. Broken fan. This was next to the 3-week box, and we've got plenty more.

Everything was put in the recycling or waste bins in the car park as appropriate.

Things to get rid of

1. A load of trolleys. I know the red one is Nigel's and the bike trolley is Billy's. Do we really need all of these? Riot trolley to be kept, red trolley to be stored for Nigel, black trolley to offered up.

2. Projector stand, on long-term loan from PaulR. We now have a ceiling mount in the quiet room.
Kept 2011-11-02 20.14.04.jpg
3. Some wombled bike frames. This is in addition to all the stuff hanging up in the "bike workshop". (note from atom - can this stuff be held onto for me? going to be building a lot of bike generators and this would really help, thanks)
Kept 2011-11-02 20.14.33.jpg
4. An apparently working lamp. Did someone empty a lighting shop?
Kept 2011-11-02 20.16.51.jpg
5. A shoe, kept because someone might have the pair.
Kept 2011-11-02 20.24.41.jpg
6. Strip heaters. Artag suggests the elements can be recovered and used. Will be stripped down (possibly by Sci, Nigle, Artag or Hipster) for vac forming.
Kept 2011-11-02 20.31.56.jpg
7. Wooden speaker boxes. These have a "do not hack" sticker, but are pretty big. Last minute reprieve after email from Amit.

Please mail the list as soon as possible if you have a good reason for these items to be taking up space.
