Soldering Workshop

Make Haven member Frank Pelliccio brought in his soldering equipment to and allowed members to try it out. We practiced by removing components from circut boards and learned about his experiences printing circuit boards and programing micro-controlers. The teaching was very useful. I had tried removing soldering before but this was the first time I had someone with so much experience there to give tips. 

3d Printer Construction (stage one)

Our first big project is going to be a 3D printer build. We have enough of the parts to begin a build, so we're going to start this Saturday and see where we get to. We'll get started at 10 AM and work until the mid afternoon, so drop in when you can. Please bring any side projects you might want to brainstorm or work on as not everyone can work on the printer at once. Feel free to bring music, laptops, you name it. We will discuss our bylaws draft with those members present after the event.

Our Own Makerspace

I really enjoyed the energy of the first move in day at MakeHaven. The location is perfect and very welcoming to street traffic. I foresee the upstairs having a large open flexible area, a creative lounge and work areas for electronics, robotics, crafts, and the link. The basement is well setup for storage and some wood working equipment.

To capture the first day moving into the space my friend Kam used his time lapse camera to record the action.
