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.
