Potlock TODOs: 2023-02-18
(Break?) open vinyl filing cabinet
- The special materials vinyl cabinet, currently sitting behind the heat press near the cutting mat, doesn't open when I rattle/tug the handles.
- As there's no keyhole and no known key, I'm not quite sure what's going on. It's likely there's some sort of lock or catch mechanism; since I've got mobility and dexterity issues, this task may be as simple as finding a button somewhere other than the front surface that unlocks the whole. I didn't have it in me to do more then tug the handles and examine the front.
- Non-destructive methods are preferred; if a destructive method is used, the cabinet must remain capable of normal use (drawers can still be pulled in and out, remains structurally stable and sound, etc.)
- The cabinet's at the far end of the cutting mat, beside the heat press, and is temporarily hidden by a stashed display case; it's just visible in the shadow.
Move telephone -or- mount display case
The display case from the second photo above needs to be placed in an accessible yet secure spot somewhere adjacent to the vinyl zone.
My preferred way to do this is remove the (unused) telephone from its mounting on the special supplies cabinet, and not bother remounting it elsewhere. (As I recall, we now actively discourage answering the phone.) Then the case could simply sit by the special supplies cabinet.
Should this prove impractical, the case needs to be mounted elsewhere. Here's a reference shot of the case, followed by the placement requirements.
The requirements are:
- Accessible from the floor; easily "opened".
- Tour guides (and anyone else who's interested) should be able to walk up, open the case, and take things out to pass around to visitors. The case's purpose is to protect the contents from dust and bumps, and keep them off of working surfaces; it's NOT to seal the contents away from everyone. Having contents easily visible from the aisle is a huge plus.
- This case is exactly like the one mounted to one side of the A-side entry door, opposite the log-in sheet. That means it "opens" by sliding the acrylic panel to one side. The acrylic isn't fastened down; it sits in a pair of grooves and slides out.
- Directionally oriented.
- In the photo above, an internal horizontal shelf is visible. There are slots (not currently in use) for two more in the same direction. If the case can be mounted so the shelves remain horizontal, it'll be much more useful.
- Protected from accidental bumps. If protecting the case weren't important, it could just sit on the floor in the aisle by the vinyl zone desk. However, long experience has shown that, eventually, everything on an aisleway at floor level will get hit by the Genie or a cart, potentially quite hard. That would be worse than no display case at all, both for the case and the contents, which will include a substantial amount of glassware.
- Removable/remountable. Much like the case by the front door, the case should be removable for reuse elsewhere without major repairs.
It's occurred to me that "mounting" between the stanchions of the red pallet rack, by the aisle, might be enough to protect it. While very accessible, such a mounting seems complicated to build, and would need to be removable once Vinyl moves out of the area. I also haven't yet gotten buyin from Lew, so please check with me before carrying this one out!
There's wall space by the back of Vinyl above the trash can. However, a substantial amount of furring would be needed to 'push' the case out from the wall enough to open it without crashing into the adjacent pallet rack, and to work around the support piller.
The wall space opposite to Vinyl, on the outer wall of the Fab Lab, is being used for temporary equipment storage. It probably shouldn't be used as a mounting location.
If it can be easily done, it might be acceptable to mount the case to the front of the Vinyl Zone desk, facing the Bike Zone and bathroom. However, such a mounting must be easy to remove (in the case Bike Zone decides to put something by the desk) and must not interfere with how the desk works (can't block desk drawers or compromise the structural integrity).
