Go for it! Rebuilding that enclosure out of aluminum would be most
welcome. Note that we don't have a brake press (though getting one
is definitely on our list) or a TIG welder (can't have welders in
our wood building).

Much of my background has involved machine shop work and CAD /
mechanical design. I was helping facilitate this a while back
at the old 83c space on Fridays:

These classes got merged into the work of building out the new space.
We should be picking up with them again soon as we finish putting the
shop together...which should be soon.
