This is a 5HP 20" wide planer with helical carbide blades.
Announcing a New Professional Development Program for Teachers
MakeHaven is for
The perfect place to create and get feedback on your early prototype or just engage with a community of people working on the frontiers of technology.
Connect with others who share your passion. Share the skills you have developed expand your horizons.
Experiment with new medium and challenge your ideas to create something unique. Hone woodworking, sewing or printmaking skills.
Multiple Fused deposition modeling printers which lay down plastic layer by layer to build your designs.
CNC Wood Mill
A large platform which an attached router which can be controlled by a computer to cut out intricate custom designs.
Several systems for harnessing the power of a CO2 laser to cut into or engrave wood. These can be used to make incredibly precise works of art.
Full workshop with all the equipment needed for most personal projects including: table saw, band-saw planer and hand tools.
A place to work on electronics platforms like Beaglebone, Raspberry Pi or Arduino. Or to solder a basic circuit board together.
The basic equipment for standard home brewing as well as a custom built computer controlled home brewing machine for the advanced home brewer.
A three axis fully enclosed metal mill, capable of cutting aluminum or steel with precision.
Sewing and Craft
Sewing machines, crafting equipment and a computer controlled embroidery machine.
Machine that heats and allows you to form plastic sheets into specific shapes. Great for making costumes, molds or a housing for your drone.
We will email you about upcoming events and workshops.
To know the actual temperature of an oven as it relates to what the thermostat reads, to know if it is hotter or colder than it should be and how much to compensate in order to get precise results.
Sometimes the 3D printers are all busy, and other times they are all free. Sometimes they appear to be busy, but will all be done printing in ten minutes. It would be nice to be able to track the progress of prints across the entire farm using something like OctoFarm or similar. There are definitely challenges to be solved, since I think OctoFarm needs to be on the inside network to talk to the OctoPrint nodes, and then we need a way to expose some status externally. Or maybe we can just do something with webcams.
Wouldn't you love to be able to carve a spoon on a lazy Sunday morning on your porch? Or whittle a walking stick by the campfire? If MakeHaven had a set of simple hand carving tools in the lending library you could!
To start out with, we could just get a simple pair of a knife and a hook knife. That'd be enough for spoon carving and some simple whittling.
A slightly more expansive kit could include a folding handsaw, a small hatchet, a few different gouges, and small chisels. A small mallet might also be useful?
The moxon vise is clamped on to a workbench to hold wood vertically, for easy access to the ends of the boards.
*DO NOT USE THIS TOOL IF YOU HAVE A PACEMAKER. REMOVE ANY JEWELRY ON YOUR HANDS WHILE USING. IF YOU HAVE ANY METAL IMPLANTS, MAKE SURE TO KEEP THEM AWAY FROM THE COILS*
The induction forge can be used for heating and melting metals. This video goes over how to make your own coils, starting around 14:00. Our coils are 1/4" and use 1/4" nuts, so no need for soldering: https://youtu.be/GU6n488i2mI?t=826.
This tool is for cleaning metal parts
This is an Everlast 250EX.
We have one microscope and would like a couple more to be able to do trainings and more types of testing or observing of materials.
This portable vise is used to hold boards vertically to offer easy access to the ends.
