Tungsten Grinder for TIG Electrodes

When you're TIG welding it's usually important to have a sharp and clean tip on your tungsten electrode. To keep from getting contaminated welds from grinding on a grinding stone used for other things, it's best to use a specific grinding wheel for welding tungstens. It's also helpful to have a jig for getting the right angle.

6 New Equipment for Space:
Ceramic Resin for FormLabs 3B

Especially now that we’re developing a ceramics area, this would be a great synergy between 3D printing and ceramics. This way we can print very, very complicated and precise parts with the ceramic resin, and then fire them to yield a purely ceramic part. One of the few FormLabs resins that can (through firing) be considered food safe.

Extended Textiles Workshop - Knitting Machine, CNC Embroidery with Inkscape

I'd like to propose a few more workshop/classes on some of the textile tools available at the space. The rug tufting class has to be one of the most successful operations at MakeHaven - why not have some special training available for CNC Embroidery and the knitting machine?

7 New Tool for Lending Library:
Woodcarving handtool set

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.

7 New Equipment for Space:
Spiral Mixer

Spiral mixers are efficient and effective dough mixers. They differ from the planetary (or KitchenAid) style in two very important ways.

First, there is an agitator arm in the center of the bowl that prevents the dough "riding" up the hook, getting stuck, forcing you to stop the machine and slide it back down.

Castable Wax Resin for the FormLab 3B

I think it would open a lot of possibilities if we added castable wax resin to our FormLabs 3B supplies. For example, as a jeweler I do a lot of initial design work with 3D modeling and lost-wax casting. Make Haven doesn't have metal casting equipment, but there are lots of outside casting facilities that will accept shipped models.
