Each shop at TinkerMill has a Shop Captain or group of Shop Co-Captains responsible for it. Shop Captain duties include:

  • Ensuring that the shop is clean, organized, and safe,
  • Ensuring that all shop equipment and tools are maintained in good working order,
  • Ensuring that all shop equipment and tools are obviously marked with the appropriate shop colors,
  • Ensuring that basic introductory classes are held at least once per month,
  • Ensuring that tool certification classes are held at least once per month,
  • Participating in ongoing communications about the shop with TinkerMill members, other shop captains, and the general public,
  • Maintaining an accurate roster of certifications, certification instructors, and certified members for certification-required tools and equipment,
  • Maintaining an adequate stock of consumable shop supplies,
  • Preparing and following an annual financial budget, and
  • Personally attending the monthly Shop Captain/Admin meetings or sending a shop representative.
