Community Guidelines

Safety might be first… No one gets hurt in an open shop…

Give & get respect. Respect the tools, Respect the process, Respect the people, not necessarily in that order. Remember to define respect so that people know what it means to respect tools/process/people/etc.

Ask if there is an issue… Ask a more experienced person if there is a question… For example, don’t know how this brake system works, and it’s a safety issue, ask a more experienced person to look it over before it goes out the door… A double checking type buddy system…

Tools go back where you found them.

Tools stay in the shop.
