We have lots of glasses. There is still a boxful in the workshop - intended as extra stock for parties (including loans for your own events) - as well as the ones in the small kitchen cupboard.

I think there may be a half-box under the T shirts too. These can be used in the space or taken for your own use if you wish. A small donation in the beer tin would be welcome, but not essential. --Artag 21:17, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Future plans

Solexious has new plans for moving the kitchen into the back room.


We have an oven! It is sitting in the Workshop waiting to be installed. We won this EOU 5330 W electrolux oven & EHP 6602 K hob, not single and not as shiny as the Neff hob but better than it looks in that picture ; and only a fiver so we can chuck it out when we find something better.

  • NB whoever installs the cooker should be aware that it will need its own dedicated circuit from the fusebox. Do not just plug it into a 13A socket (unless it's unusually low-power). Example instructions: [

There's a lot more to running power to an oven than that page suggests. We will do this properly. In the meantime, if anyone's a qualified spark, or has significant experience with electric installation, and is willing to spare the time, feel free to contact us on IRC.


We won this for £20 in an auction, which is a decent hob. We need to determine whether it should be used instead of the cooker hob.

  • There's no special reason to use the electrolux hob - no controls integrated or anything, and the Neff hob has no knobs to capture dirt. But there's also the possibility of fitting both - would be useful for cooking larger meals, and wouldn't really affect the use as a worktop when not in use.
    • I think 8 hobs is overkill for any purpose we will realistically have. This hob is nicer, but if we are keeping the other one then the knobs will be there anyway - can't see that it is reasonable to fit both. Can the hob on the elecrtolux be separated from the oven? If not I think it would be best to keep this one in a box until we get a modern oven. Robert 08:16, 25 September 2010 (UTC)
    • Yes, the electrolux hob is completely separate from the oven and probably interchangeable with the Neff in terms of worktop cutout.
      • I would be in favor of just scrapping the electrolux then, assuming there is no technical justification for using it over the Neff. Robert 20:08, 25 September 2010 (UTC)
