 * We packed away the SRM SF and BF.
 * After several failed attempts with one secondary prism, Mark finished the SR3 prism/magnet gluing.
 * Tanioka-kun built two IRMs (less OSEMs).
 * Enzo built an RM.
 * Kozu-kun and Enzo calibrated one set of 6 IM OSEMs for SR3. (6 OSEMs for SRM remain to be done.)
 * Hirata-san aligned the assembly frame, installed the interface bars and IM ring, and installed the IM.
 * Eleonora and Izumi-san revisited the BS length to tilt coupling, which had degraded, and got it working again.
