Rooftop MakHaven Radio Shack

I have an idea for MakeHaven

Install two conduits along side of the building near the windows near the laser cutters going straight up to the roof level… one conduit for ac Power 220vac two phase. 50 Amp service. The second conduit, much larger and wider for all kinds of other cables….

Though the Prusa hasn't been perfect, that's largely because people have been using Octopi slicer. By using the Prusa slicer it seems to work flawlessly. It makes great prints, and is a great price compared to comparable machines. It would be great for our PLA 3d printers to be consistent.

Coffee Roaster

Roasting your own coffee gives you more control, is far cheaper, ensures freshness, and gives you access to a much wider range of beans! Though you can roast at home with a Whirlypop or other simple setup, having a programmable machine with heating elements, fans, and smoke control makes things much easier, more approachable for new users, and produces less of a mess.

Rolling Mill

For use with sheet metal an wire. It is different than the shear/brake/roll, in that it uses a gear reduction system to multiply the force on the metal. It is used to compress the metal, giving the user the ability to flatten sheet metal, change it’s gauge, forge it, etc. It is an incredibly useful tool for metal sculpture and jewelry making.

1 New Equipment:
Dough Sheeter

Ever have the hunkering to make a large batch of tortillas?? How about homemade croissants? Roll out some pizza dough? We have a pasta roller, but the limited width makes it hard to do large batches or laminated dough. There are some nice tabletop 19" versions on etsy! Or some ambitious person could make one??!?

1 New Equipment:
Router plane

Very useful for finishing dado or sliding dovetail joints. Veritas has a nice model, very easy to sharpen (https://www.leevalley.com/en-us/shop/tools/hand-tools/planes/router/5260...) but a used Stanley 71 can probably work as well.

1 New Equipment:
Shaper Tool ( Hand Held CNC Router )

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.
