Machine is working as expected.

This machine requires induction to use.

In order to get inducted on this machine, you need to go to the following Eventbrite event and book a place for yourself on one of the available dates.

Router Table Inductions

After that, you just need to come that day and take the induction. Please pay attention to the description of the event because there's a couple of things that you need to comply with. Most importantly, be on time and bring your own mandatory PPE.

The cause has a commitment to giving at least one induction per week on one of the machines that require induction. The way we organize all of this is by having fortnightly polls on the forum. By doing so we can check the actual demand and deliver a solution.

When we create dates they will be announced through discord (woodchop channel) and the messages will be pinned.

In summary:

  1. Check this link to see if you can book an induction: Router Table Inductions.
  2. Check the forum to see if there's a poll open to organize the following inductions and vote accordingly.Woodworking forum
  3. Talk to the cause leader about it or start a conversation on discord.
  4. Check the helpdesk channel on discord.
