- Big Red Jilin Yongli A2 80W tube cutting at 32mA
* Too high! Who set this?
* Was LaserMaxPower=85 -> 32mA
* Now LaserMaxPower=65 -> 25mA (26mA is recommended for a full 10000 hour lifespan)
* Dust extraction
* LG500 host burst, now upgraded - thanks Lemming!

* Spare parts wanted:
* Lens: 50mm, 63.5mm focus
* Beam combiner?
* Announce install/test of new Reci W6 130W tube
* Distilled water
* Isopropyl alcohol, cleaning wipes
* Align&test, planning for periodic maintenance sessions
* Fix current mA meter mounting
* Review goals:
- 150W tube for LC1290 (Big Red)
- Arrived, needs testing: next meeting
- Formally schedule periodic preventative laser maintenance
- Aim for monthly, starting after next fortnight
- Update signs:
- Get test version of laserbot RFID working again (with internal access logging)
- Want to have prototype and development/spare units available for trial, help wanted
- Have access to both machines logged by laser bot, controlled later
- All laser trainers trained for and they participate in scheduled preventative laser maintenance.
- Implement laser "currency" and periodic training (especially when procedures change)
- Improve known-good stock levels
- Charging for both laser cutters controlled by laserbot RFID system
