Do far we have no volunteers burn out, the labour within the space
seems quite balanced, the usual 80/20 you see in most projects.
Regarding machines, people maintain them, even without getting paid
for it, I'm surprised you find this weird. If there are costs made for
machines to maintain them, usually either we make a pledge and a
subset of the members pay for it or sometimes just an individual pays
for it by him/her self.
