Laser Cutter

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.

Wood Shop

Full workshop with all the equipment needed for most personal projects including: table saw, band-saw  planer and hand tools. 

Electronics Workbench

A place to work on electronics platforms like Beaglebone, Raspberry Pi or Arduino. Or to solder a basic circuit board together.

Mental Floss

So I attended last night's get together and learned what a stepper motor is and helped Kam fix one that was jammed (good clean fun), but the highlight of the evening for my own personal self was when Ian Applegate showed up riding a bright green vintage Schwinn Sprint wearing an Evel Kneivel motorcycle helmet AND, under the helmet, Dominique Pinon wrap around shades (VR glasses) that were electronically broadcasting to his eyeballs what his handheld camera (in his hand at that very moment) was seeing.

Come on by to our standing tuesday meeting. We will probably be working on assembling the 3d printer. As well as brainstorming our next projects.

Making the Makerspace

 

This is a picture of MakeHaven before we moved anything in. Its like a blank canvas. The possibilities are endless.

What the makerspace actually looks like will depend on what equipment we get and what the membership decides is the best way to organize. To get the conversation going I decided to draw some diagrams detailing my vision of how we could organize. The basic concept that I have is based on several areas that have all the tools organized for various purposes: these include: a kitchen, craft, mechanical, computer and mechanical areas (woodworking would be in the basement where there is more space). Most of these areas are open to the a flex area that can be used when any project requires more space or when we are conducting a workshop.

This is our weekly Tuesday membership meeting.

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. 

Make Haven

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.
