Hey everyone,

The Nitrous Transporter is almost finished, all we need to do is machine
few things and assemble them to complete it. Unfortunately, I have very
little time this week, so I need some help to get it done. If you want to
get your hands dirty or just feel like you're not doing enough or want to
do more in RPG, then this is a great opportunity to make some stuff.

1) Someone needs to take the green tube of Cast Nylon to Joe's shop in the
basement of 110 Cummington Mall (under the wind tunnel) and turn the
outside diameter down to 1.500" and bore the inside diameter out to 0.88",
then cut 4 0.75" long segments and 8 0.50" long segments form the tube. The
tube is in the wind tunnel on top of an aluminum piece on a green cart by
the cabinet. Take the longer, thinner tube (~8" long) and work on that.

2) There is a very long piece of aluminum at the tinker lab that I need
cut. I started a cut but couldn't finish it on the mill. The best place to
finish this would be on Bob Sjostrom's bandsaw. The piece is about 12"x~64"
and maybe 3/8" thick. It needs to be cut into a 12"x30" plate and taken to
the wind tunnel (the rest of it goes back to tinker).

Let me know if you are interested in doing this stuff. If you have any
questions about anything please email me and I'll do my best to answer them.
