I asked was asked to start this topic, so here goes.
I think the tools around the hackerspace need to have more signs with information like:
- What not to do (e.g. don’t cut PVC on the laser cutter, don’t touch the tablesaw blade unless it’s off, etc.)
- Summary of steps on how to use the equipment, for people who use it only occasionally and need reminders
- What training is necessary to use the equipment
- Contact info for the sign itself
I think the first step would be to create a list of equipment that needs signs, and then assign an owner to each sign. The owner would be someone who is very familiar with the equipment. We probably should create a template so that all the signs generally looks the same.
Is there an official Google Docs site that can be used to create a spreadsheet?
