The mechanical team oversees a workshop and outdoor space where members can work on any project involving assembly or disassembly: pushbikes, motorbikes, vans, cars, gearboxes, chains, and everything in between!

The mechanical team will ensure that HSBNE maintains a robust mechanical capacity, and that members of all skill levels feel welcome to explore and develop their projects in a well-equipped mechanical shop.

Immediate goals:

  • Design and establish the Mechanical workshop.
    • Pneumatic (route airlines for tools and sandblaster)
    • Tooling (extend the tooling capacity of the workshop)
    • lighting (provide adequate in and outdoor lighting
    • Toolstorage (provide an easy to use tool system)

Short term:

  • Work on making the space efficient and organised
  • Liaise with the Forge team about using their flammables cabinet

Medium term:

  • Develop classes

Long term:

  • Create a covered outdoor area that stretches beyond the current awning
