Sorry that i didn’t continue the documentation. The past days were very stressful:)
Now i will start to fill up the gaps.

Wednesday was a calm day:)
We made a companyvisit. Primo Barzoni invited us
to show his pallete production. His company is working on sustainable ways to produce pallets since many years. It’s not easy for them to be competitive, but they believe in circleeconomy. At the evening we had the chance to show the shredder, because there wasn’t a high voltage connector in our current workshop.

On Friday the germans and of course the austrian ( @flo-2 ) made a trip to the Lago di Garda.
At the evening we made a presentation about our workspace in dresden, precious plastic project, wasteproblem and open source hardware/software. Also the president of the Palm held a short presentation about circleaconomy…
And after that: the vino rosso’s were opened;)

after all we had much fun but too much heat…
-> don’t try to make a workshop at 40 degrees. during this temperature you cannot even think 🙂

much love
carl

ps: i will try to write a conclusion, what worked well and the opposite
