Post-Cooldown August 2018 Assessment

Lessons from Cooldown August 2018:

-make sure your carbon fiber tube fits in the magnet before cutting it -find way to secure scaffold to one spot - feet and wheel clamps didn't seem to cut it completely -monitor what's going on in the magnet, checking at regular (15 min.) intervals -make sure helium gets refilled at least once a day -don't wait until the last minute to check if things fit - do this a couple days beforehand! -don't lean on scaffold when using the ladder to check inside the magnet -come up with way to center target/gaussmeter more reliably than by sight
