Further, Keyholders must donate 5 hours per month to attend drop-in hours or otherwise contribute. During this drop-in time, Keyholders should help non-keyholders if they can, answer questions from potential members that stop in but also perform routine maintenance such as cleaning bathrooms, fixing tools, etc. Lastly, attendance at the monthly meeting is mandatory.
What tools can I use?
1) Communal use- can be used by anyone that has been ok’d to use them. We hold safety sessions for certain machines that EVERYONE must attend before using them;
2) Semi-private tools- can be used only if you have permission from the owner. Please ask if you are not sure if a tool is communal or semi-private;
3) Private tools- cannot be used. These tools should be stored in a private-storage space such as a cubby or semi-private studio.
