Background

The cold metals budgets for previous years were $6000 (2015) and $5600 (2016). This year's budget request is higher to accommodate more members in the area, furniture for the expansion, and to continue providing fasteners to the space. As I have done in past years, I will be looking for bargains on used equipment that will expand our capabilities. Several members have enthusiastically recommended a cold saw, which looks something like a very sturdy wood miter saw with flood coolant. According to the survey and mailing list thread from earlier this year, members are also interested in additional sheet metal tools, so I will be looking for those.
