I’ve been lead to believe that the one thing 2169 owner cares about NB getting tf out of there is the laser cutter vent assembly. This happens to be chock full of hazardous dust (? or condensed tars - anyway seriously carcinogenic … despite being lovingly sourced from only the finest vaporized wood and plastics over the years).
So if anyone is going to deal with that, better if they know what they’re doing and come prepared with appropriate protective gear.
Yesterday JD and John B. removed the fume hood over where the kiln used to be, thereby clearing the way to the area over the bathrooms where the laser fume duct runs to a vent above the bathroom window.
The bulbs have been removed from the fluorescent light fixtures so they can be more safely swung out of the way of the other end of the ducting (thanks @Rayyan).
There is still plenty of (relatively) non-toxic heavy lifting to do as well as a few fiddly bits left to be detached from walls and ceilings - volunteers for any and all areas of endeavor to facilitate will be muchly appreciated!
