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 coolantAccording 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.

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. Having funds allocated in this budget vote, rather than in a vote later in the year, allows me to react quickly to something that comes up, such as at an auction. So far, members are most interested in adding a cold saw and sheet metal equpiment, so that's what I'll be looking for.
