Restoration and Open House Preparations

Thanks to all the folks who've been volunteering at the Foundry since we started our Kickstarter project! We now have a vent hood on the Orphan Annie (as well as the Material Maker and Composition Caster). We also thought you might like to see what happens at a typical work party... namely cleaning, cataloging and restoring.
