A small rack was donated which we will transform into a letterbox as the building has none.

[edit] News

First letter was recieved on 9 June 2010

[edit] Todo

  • add a lock to the drawer (simple padlock?)
  • put nametag on box (syn2cat logo is on, maybe add a small one on the flap too)

[edit] Done

  • remove ventilation, plugs and other stuff
  • clean rack
  • reverse doors so that ventilation slot is in front
  • design flap to be fitted on the ventilation hole
  • obstruct the window with a poster or similar
  • Build flap from metal for throwing letters through the top (protoype)
  • Swap bottom plates front/back
  • create a fancy drawer to recieve the letters in.
  • redo metal flap to make it water tight
  • paint flap? put adhesive foil on it instead
  • mount flap
  • put a sign that it's for letters
  • put "keng reklamen w.e.g." sign on
  • test for water tight (OK, some rust is appearing)
  • send a test letter

[edit] Brainstorming

Get awesome electricity into the letterrack. Possible solutions include solar panels and possibly windmills.
See Syn2rbine for information on that project.
