A key feature of this proposed change is to increase the membership of the club board by adding an At-Large member. The board will be accepting nominations for this position. Click here for details.
New Board Members Elected
The following members have been elected to fill the club's board positions in 2022:
Equipment To Be Replaced - The two SawStop cabinet saw and the Performax 16-32 drum sander have reached or exceeded the end of their service life by SCOV standards and are being replaced. The two saws are on order and should arrive in February or March 2022. The replacement for the drum sander, the Jet 16-32, has arrived and is in service. Users and monitors should become familiar with the differences between the Performax and Jet machines. The owner's manualfor the new sander is available in this website.
We are also requesting the Association to replace the Jet Oscillating Spindle Sander and the Powermatic Jointer. These machines have become problematic and have reached the end of their service life also. If approved, the sander will be replaced with Jet's JOSS-S sander, and the jointer will be replaced by a 12 inch Powermatic 1285 Jointer. We are waiting for these two replacement actions to be approved by the Association.
New Equipment - The club is requesting the purchase of equipment that falls in the category of "New Equipment". That is different than replacement since these items have not been owned by the Association previously and have not seen service in the woodshop. The two items are a SawStop Contractor model saw and a new type of router lift and router for the router table. The requests for the router equipment and contractor saw have been forwarded to the Association. Click on the following links to learn about the router equipment being considered.
