  * Fabian took photos of the cleanroom in the ATC to help decide whether it is a good place to assemble PIs for Type A/B.
  * Hirata-san wiped one set each of wires for the BS and RM (addition sets pending).
  * Hirata-san washed remachined locking parts for the IM and screws for jacks.
  * Hirata-san liaised with Ikenoue-san of ATC to get new winch parts designed for the new wire thicknesses. Ikenoue-san provided updated designs for checking.
  * Hirata-san worked on the Inventor 3D assembly of the SR2.
  * The scale for checking the masses of the IM parts was received.
  * Fabian and Hirata-san identified an issue with the lock screws between the IM and IRM. The screws were slightly too large, and correcting the size with a die caused large flakes of the black coating to come off. (These screws were ordered before the current screw policy was instituted.) Hirata-san will order better screws from Misumi and have additional machining done on them.
  * Fabian tracked down the calibration factors for the geophones and generated a calibrated plot.
  * Mark and Fabian went to Kashiwa to clean up glue residue on the dummy BS and do a fit/function test of Tatsumi-san's modified tooling.
   * Most of the remaining glue came off with soaking in acetone, but there is still some in the machining grooves in the Al surface. Probably more work is required.
   * A set of cleanroom shoes borrowed from the ATC disintegrated when worn (the plastic had perished from age), which put small pieces of foam all over the floor in Hirose-san's cleanroom and required a lot of clean-up with a sticky roller! Cleanroom suits and shoes for use by Type B team at Mitaka/Kashiwa have been ordered, but will take another week to arrive.
   * The flag holding parts are now much easier to place and remove, much reducing the risk of breaking flags after gluing.
   * The sapphire and metal prisms from both the first BS gluing and the PR3 hanging test mirror were brought back to Mitaka for ultrasonic cleaning to remove glue, so they can be reused.
  * Hirata-san found the SR versions of the screws for immobilizing the IM and IRM. These fit much better than the BS ones (despite being the same design) and will be used for the BS.
