I'd like to help. I think that's a great idea.

In addition, though, I think it's appropriate to establish some oversight on dangerous or very expensive equipment. 

Right now, we have no system to train people on the laser cutter. I think there should be at least a voluntary training process for the laser cutter. I think a mandatory one is reasonable, but I'm not even proposing that. I'm just saying that if we have a laser cutter sitting out, it seems to be in our interest as a collective to take some responsibility for helping people use it safely.

It sounds like we should secure the power cord of the chiller so it can't be
accidentally unplugged.  We should also put a temperature sensor on the
coolant lines and a flow sensor, and make a lockout so that it turns off the
laser if everything is not working right (including the fan)

Who wants to help with this?  I can supply the sensors and relays etc.
