Back to 2017 Budget.



  • Mailing List Announcement: ???
  • Officially Proposed: ???
  • Voted on: ???


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. Based on input I've received so far, members are most interested in adding a cold saw and sheet metal equipment, so that's what I'll be looking for.

Item Amount
Repairs to existing equipment - motors & controllers, belts, pulleys, replacement parts, services 1500
Consumable tooling - drills, blades, taps, dies 750
Lubricants, coolant 250
Non-consumable tooling - jigs, fixtures, clamps, etc. 450
Furniture - shelving, benches, storage cabinets 800

Equipment 2000
Fasteners & Hardware 750
Handtools - Sockets, wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers etc. 750
Books and videos 150
