there is no schedule. people do what they can (or
please) when they can.
one burning need is for storage. seems to me the
stuff in the turing classroom is of three categories:
computer stuff, construction stuff, and the flat
screen stuff (on the table near the door).
getting the computer stuff and the construction
stuff off the tables makes the room useable.
places to put the stuff include near the big rack
and other computer stuff near the fridge (for the
computer stuff) as well as along the wall that
divides the classrooms from the central walkway space
(for the construction stuff). leave the flat screen
stuff where it is for now.
look at the construction of the shelves in the
storage closet and build another one or two shelves.
i've got the hang of it, so just as well leave it
for me--i'll get to it fast.
there's paint and electrical fittings in the
against the west windows are planks for the book
shelves. cut 2x4s in 12 inch lengths (nice and
straight cuts, use the radial saw) for supports for
the shelves. there are a few heavy cardboard
wardrobe boxes to be used as backing (smear glue on
the rear edges of the wood then staple or nail the
cardboard onto the glued surfaces). there are
various nails and glue and various tees and angle
braces in the closet next to the electronics area.
the sub-panel on the south wall (west end) should
power the lights and receptacles for the electronics
area, storage closet, and darkroom. the light fixtures
above the electronics area should get powered from
the sub-panel and switched from a column on the south
wall (look at tape tags on the south wall). bring pipe
up from the sub-panel to the ceiling and then branch
to the various locations (there's my bender in the
wire up the receptacles on the west wall. they get
power from the sub-panel on the north wall (near the
in the middle of the north wall in the turing
classroom, near the floor, is a box with wires sticking
out. leave it alone till i group the red-black-white
wires. then it'll be ready for provide power for lights
in the dirty workshop, turing classroom, and church
classroom as well as receptacles in the turing and
the sub-panel in the dirty workshop provides power
for receptacles in the dirty workshop. use singles for
dedicated machines; use duplexes for handtools.
send me email off-list and we can coordinate a
