Re: Free small heater

workshop is fine..
please label it.

yes fan heaters are an energy bad.

we should do some real research into how to heat the CraftyRoom... there is a Oil Radiator in there at the mo, on Max all the time and the room is still "super brass monkeys".

any ideas?

thanks.

Re: electrical malfunctions

re-wire wish-list:

Kitchen Master switch: power to everything (inc. jukebox) apart from fridges.

Sound circuit: power to all sound stuff (exc. jukebox) , inc understage amps, but locked and "sound team" responsibility.
