  • Please read the Code of Conduct
  • Please clean up after yourself - put tools away and if you've made a lot of sawdust please sweep the floor.
  • If you are making things to resell then you are expected to purchase the consumables.
  • There are storage lockers located on each floor. First floor lockers are at the top of the stairs that lead to the basement. Second floor lockers are located in the north room next to the library. Lockers are first-come-first serve. Feel free to use any un-occupied locker - just put your name on it. Also, please remove your name when you are done with the locker.
  • Most equipment has a QR code near it. The QR code points to a Wiki page with instructions and helpful information on using that piece of equipment. The woodshop has a notebook with the manuals for most of the machines.
  • If you need to buy supplies for your project check out Sources for Parts, Supplies, and Consumables for a list of suppliers suggested by other members. (Feel free to suggest additions).
  • There are 5 WiFi access points:
    • fox.build1 - Comcast 2.4 Ghz
    • fox.build2 - Comcast 5 Ghz
    • fox.build3 - 3D printer room router. Not ideal for general use.
    • fox.build4 - AT&T 2.4 Ghz
    • FoxWoodshop - 2.4 Ghz in the woodshop
  • The Ethernet jacks on the first floor are labeled with an 'A' or a 'B' suffix. The 'A' jacks are connected to Comcast and the 'B' jacks are connected to AT&T.
  • The public laser printer on the first floor is a Brother 8890dw. It is connected to the AT&T network, which means to connect to it you need to be on the AT&T WiFi (fox.build4) or connected to a 'B' jack.
  • The public printer on the second floor is a HP Deskjet 1200C color printer.
  • Any other printers visible on the network are in offices and are private.
