Pictured is Joe and Dobby in prototype trailer #1. After a number of test runs with round 1, Joe’s 👨‍🏭welding waves with round 2 ✨

Joe’s been working on their mobile trailer from scratch here at the shop with funds they received from their stimulus check.

And round 2 is almost complete! If you’d like to help dream team, Joe and Dobby with their endeavors:

Venmo: Tsomo

In Joe’s words ~

“Venmo is also a much safer way to tip me for busking. Cheers beautiful people! Free advice for the day: look at yourself in the mirror and say I love you, then sing a song or do something musical... It's good for your brain...”

Here's a lithium battery pack Eric Pugh put together from some less useful packs. There's some *~creative reuse~* in applying the otherwise trash bumper stickers as big strips of electrical tape.

Next up is building the charge controller. It was used to power a sound system for the recent Midnight Mystery Ride!

Hey, y'all! This month's been going really well for us. We had our first general meeting as h.h on Tuesday. Meeting notes are linked at the bottom.

h.h may be gaining full access to the CNC router and room soon, especially if we're able to hit a goal of 15 consistent members. There's also talk of potentially getting a more powerful laser.

Classes have been very successful, and we've nearly paid all the bills this month through membership and classes alone! Thanks so much for everyone being a part of this. We deeply appreciate our community, and hope to see more of you soon (Like at our 2 events tonight!)

Here's our latest report for the hackerspace! Here's how we did last month! Pretty alright. Our rent is lower than we were paying before($750) because we're done financing the deposit. The community keeps growing though, so things look good for the future. Thanks to our newest member Joshua for making this great infographic!

Plastic recycling progress: (!) We made a rudimentary compression mold and did a couple tests in a toaster oven. First we shredded the plastic into chips. The first one was a polypropylene (5) yogurt container that didn't get hot enough. The second was a beautifully spacey marble mixture of failed 3D PLA prints. They both lasered fairly well! We have to figure out a better way to release the piece though.

Here's some progress today

I am casting a new tv show for a major production company. We are searching nationwide for Inventors, entrepreneurs, or everyday people who after experiencing a natural disaster were inspired to create a new product, gadget, or device. Whether it was the current virus, hurricane, earthquake, flood, fire, blizzard, pandemic, or other natural disasters we are looking to find inventions, products, or gadgets created due to that experience. We want to tell their stories and show their inventions to the world! We are looking to showcase people whose ideas have already gone to market, are in production, or at a minimum have a working prototype. Please feel free to share this information and the casting flyer with anyone you think might be interested. To be considered for the project please complete our casting application using the website on the flyer. We are only casting for a couple of weeks so get those applications in soon.
hi there Hedron. I wonder if there are folks who would be interested in this. I could draft a .dxf file for printing if it can be made over there
After this, I'll at least know weather I can injection mold plastic into wood.
Found a full size plastic recycler!
Would you be interested to print these and take to SHOW AND SELL? I want to sell the patent as soon as it comes. Thanks,
Here's a little info on what's happening with the space!
hey folks. I'm wondering if any of the makers there would want a large piece of sheet metal. It's three pieces bent into a 'U' dims for each side are 33in x 26in and it's 21g (0.033") I can drop it off
Have yall seen this diy water jet cutter with a pressure washer?
