New Members

Hi so you've joined the Manchester hackspace.
Below is a general overview of the do's and don'ts while in the space

Please Do

  • When using tools please place them back where you found them. It can be very frustrating for other members if a tool is misplaced and can't be found, especially if it has been donated.
  • Please tidy up when making a mess. Using tools in the woody dusty area and leaving a mess of wood and dust for example is generally not cool, since it just means someone else has to tidy it up.
  • Don't be afraid to report when something breaks. If you'd tried to be careful but a tool is no longer working don't be afraid to mention something has gone wrong (such as the belt wearing out on the belt sander for example)
  • Please read the Citizen Hacman Commitment

Can I?

  • Can I paint the walls / things?

It's best to ask permission before painting walls or things in general (on Telegram is a good idea).
Putting graffiti on the walls is generally not a polite thing to do and we aim to be as inclusive as possible for all members.

  • Can I use the large dangerous tools?

Generally for insurance reasons we tend to have to give an induction on the big tools to make sure we're covered. The main number one rule is that no-one should be allowed to use one of the big dangerous tools (like the table saw) while they're alone in the space.
For the big tools at least one other person needs to be present somewhere in the space.

  • Can I help make the space better?

Most certainly although if in doubt join in on the conversation on the main telegram channel

CNC

To use the CNC an induction is required, it's more complex to use than the laser cutter as it's basically a computer controlled milling bit that operates in 3 dimensions.
