   *  **If we find that someone hasn't used the air assist on the 60 watt**, we will initiate a camera review and consider banning that person for an unspecified length of time...probably measured in months. There have been several situations where we have found the 60 watt unusable until the lens was extensively cleaned. These are expensive and there'​s no reason we should have to replace them quite so often.   *  **If we find that someone hasn't used the air assist on the 60 watt**, we will initiate a camera review and consider banning that person for an unspecified length of time...probably measured in months.

   * **If you are making a profit from something at the space (laser cutter or otherwise)** the guidelines are that you should be contributing 5% of your profit towards the machines you are using, in order to pay for their upkeep, and wear and tear. This is only fair, you are making a profit, using someone else's machine. If you are not making a profit, but still using the machines to create a product, you should similarly be contributing towards the area funds. Please remember that even if you are running your business on these machines, you have no more right to use the machines than any other member, with the possible exception of the actual owner of the machine.   * **If you are making a profit from something at the space (laser cutter or otherwise)** the guidelines are that you should be contributing 5% of your profit towards the machines you are using, in order to pay for their upkeep, and wear and tear.
