Hi All,
Since Alan showed me how to use the Laser cutter last week, I've been
hooked. However the complaints from other Noisebridgers about the smells
from acrylic cutting/rastering got to me, and I've been working on a
replacement for the pieced-together ventilation system for that room/booth.
I got some great fans from Corey, and some design input from Alan and Jake,
and am ready to vent.

I've got a new board with fans almost ready to go, and a supply of
weatherstripping and some screws, caulk, flexible ducting and duct tape, and
plan to install it Thursday evening. I should be able to make it over by 7pm
and hope to get it installed around 8-9. I may have to interrupt any cutting
going on (but will try to schedule around users.) I welcome a volunteer or
two to help out. (there's roof climbing, and scary stairwell tightrope
walking to be done as well. We could also use some sheet/tarp material to
hang over the doorway to help with air isolation. If you've got some, that
would be awesome.

Also, you may notice the wrench to adjust the z-axis is gone... There is a
new rotary wheel (template supplied by the manufacturer) that Alan and I
installed last night. It is now very easy to adjust the Z access without
having to reach under the machine and wrench around... this also makes it
easy to "bottom out" the z axis adjustment screws, so be careful and don't
do that. It was a pain to fix last time!

I welcome your input/assistance.
