This is a fast, simple sewn facemask that includes a nose piece. It is designed for use with the 9" x 6" mask kits, but you can also cut material to 9"x6". This pattern also works at 9.5"x7" for a larger mask. I was able to create a mask in about 10 minutes, and that's with some 7th grade home-ec training and a badging on a sewing machine at MakeHaven. This is written by a novice sewist for novices. You can do this!
As the Gerber CNC has been in development for over a year and projects larger than the Shapeoko can handle are inaccessible to members at the moment. A handheld CNC would allow a stop-gap to allow the working of much larger projects than can be contained within a table.
Moreover, as it is portable... it could conceivably be used offsite for outreach events and other engagements (provided that event sites have the proper power requirements).
16” plus the infeed/outfeed length is a game changer; being able to joint wide components post glue-up is amazing
The fundraiser is live! MakeHaven will be matching, so we just need to reach $1000.
Wouldn't take up much space, and if we got the heat treating oven/kiln would be a great capability!
