Team, Group or Volunteer who usually handles this type of ISSUE or REQUEST (Please tag using the @ symbol. Start by typing @TEAM_ to find most responsible teams): @TEAM_Woodshop

Details of ISSUE or REQUEST (Please be as specific as possible):
The drive chain in the thickness planer (blue) is broken. A chain pin failed. It may be fixable in the shop, or we may have to order a new chain.

Please remember that VOLUNTEERS will be helping to resolve this issue. While everyone works very hard to fix things quickly, sometimes things take time. Please consider #volunteering to help keep everything working well in our makerspace!

The Powermatic planer works and may be used just like the other thickness planer.

A replacement chain has been ordered, and the blue planer should be running again by Saturday.

The Grizzly is back in service, minor repairs completed.
