We have been trying to get rid of the large broken flow hood in the cleanroom to no avail. Most recently someone was supposed to come to take it almost a month ago. Our inaction on removing it has already caused a member to leave the space. I am not one who typically wants to see a tool be removed but at this point, for the cost to replace the filters we can build/buy a new one. Not to mention how absurdly loud it is and it’s other issues that need fixing.
I have told @machiavelli that I would be willing to disassemble it and bring the metal to the scrap yard and donate the proceeds back to the hackerspace. He is just as eager to get the flow hood removed so we can reorganize and clean up the space.
