  • Maintenance of the laser cutter's control computer
  • The list of acceptable materials for use with the laser cutter
  • The space owned lasers and safety regarding the lasers
  • This Committee is run as a benevolent dictatorship with the understanding that if something needs to get done, anyone can do the work.
