Makes a noise Machine makes a noise as if something is rubbing or it needs oil. I was sharpening knives with the help of Mike Hanke. He couldn't figure out the source of the noise nor could I.

Water jet not cutting smoothly, clogging, water backing up, garnet getting stuck Water jet cuts are not smooth. Water is coming out by the top of the garnet at times. Worked with Chris Chalsma and tried:

* Cleaning and drying top black cap and clear tube (repeatedly)

* Removing and cleaning mixing tube

* Adjusting water height/nozzle height/changing materials

* Emptying and cleaning out garnet tube

* Replacing clear garnet tube
In case it is relevant: came in to the water jet fully on, water running this morning. Appears to have ben left on since last night. Image included is a still from video posted to slack. Looks like there is a GEMS class planning to use the tool tomorrow.

Computer 1 seems slow The computer seemed extra slow today, taking a while to register mouse-clicks, that sort of thing. Restart did not help, though it did bring up a big McAfee thing which I didn't think we had.

3D print covers for Wire wheels The wire wheel in the metal shop needs covers on the sides, so if someone could design and print 2 of those (matching up with the screw holes and leaving the front exposed) that would be super duper.

Figure out webcam streaming for space We have a webcam setup in the main space ( but would like to have at least a webcam in each of the main spaces so people can check on usage of tools before coming in. We have several Waze cams that can be loaded with new firmware to support ( We used to embed it in the website, this works well enough, although breaks occasionally. Problem is we have not figured out a way to make it do multiple cameras. Perhaps there is open source server software that can be used (as I understand our rtsp port gets used by first camera and cant add more)? We are open to buying special purpose cameras if that is the best option. I assume this task will require knowledge of how to configure routers.

Improve VR Setup We have a VR setup on the big screen but we need someone who can put good software on for expeirences/demos (not focused on games). Key would be identifying a few experiences we can have the public do at events and activities. It would also be good to figure out how to mount the monitor so that peopel can do some development in Unity.  It would also be good to figure out how to better manage the cables so they dont get walked on.

Setup Homing on Shapeoko CNC It seems that for whatever reason the shapeoko totally stops when it hits a limit switch. It would be preferable to be able to use those switches for homing the device. This needs investigation. I suspect this is something in the grbl config but not certain.
