Re: Visit from Ottawa

We don't have any events planned over the holiday season (many of our members will be out of town), but we're having an open house on January 17th. If you'd like to come down before then, you just need to make sure someone is around to let you in. I'll be down there tonight after 7 or so.

Meeting Announcement: Dec 14th

Re: Project log - CNC upgrade

As thesaxmachine posted, all the major pieces are done. There are only a handful of small things left to do:

* Mounting the leadnuts

* Attach the z motor mount (it's just sitting there right now)
* mount t-tracks and spoilboard
* tighten all the things
