      • Where's it's wiki page? It never had one.
      • Why shouldn't we keep it? It would require running an 1 1/2" gas line and getting the gas pressure to our building increased. Plus it's big.
      • How will we get rid of it? I've already asked Chicago Industrial Arts if they want it, they don't. We would post it on Craigslist for two weeks at $1000 then offer it for internal auction.
      • Has the board and membership been notified? An email has been sent to info@ and treasurer@ I'm requesting that this be announced at the next members meeting. That would start the clock.
