No news is good news. In the last month, we've made £6,192.63 revenue:
The remaining unknowns are business rates and the exact magnitude of
the electricity bills. Both of these are expected to firm up in the
next month. We're also spending a substantial amount on sundry
components and equipment.

Speaking of that - could folks have a good look round for quite a blue&white breadboards* ? About 4 or 5 gone missing - as have a small pile of small white & red ones half that size. (and ahead of time I apologise for monopolizing the nice big white one this week).

I've donated a couple of second- and third- hand ones this week. The ones with dirkx/do-not-hack have all been checked and are accurate/calibrated-ish.

I've been throwing quite a few half broken saws, saws with a crack and drills away*. Added to the page. Assumed that the only spares where near the old mill and in the black drawers near the lathe.
*: I was taken aback a bit by the danger level of both how they got into that state and the fact that they where put back for use.
