I was cutting some foam in gerald and it was set alight. It was a small chunk of foam so the fire was only small. Adrian replaced the air assist tube so the spare needs replacing

The air assist tube was replaced with silicone tubing during the Laser Maintenance day on Sunday 9th. This should hopefully be a bit more resilient than the old PVC tubing, but we have also built in a sacrificial end to the air assist tubing should it be damaged in the future.

Do we have spare in stock for the future though? That's what I took this to refer to.

Yes, we have approx 1.5m of spare tubing left over from the upgrade on Sunday, this should be sufficient for about 10 replacements.
