    An amazing inaugural Maker Monday - the crew installed installed film on 9 huge windows, saving the Space an approx. $331.86 in heating costs over the next 6 months.
    Pizza was Pepperonni, Mushroom, peppers and extra cheese. Pints were served seperately at Pizza Pi.
    12 more windows to go - see you next Monday night!

    Window film insulation and mudroom organization (with Chinese food on the side.)

    If you have stuff in the mudroom to organize or remove, please do so.

    MakerMonday 2 nite nite nite!

    Couple of fun tasks up for tonight:

    • design huge plywood Terminator hand with motors to attach to the outside of the building and wave at people.

    *proof-of-concept of small nuclear generator to power and heat space.

    • Multi-level car elevator - pros and cons.

    And probably some cleanup and window film…



  • I’ll be coming tonight/today



  • @Vaughn

    Those “servos” from the HVAC ducting are perfect for a giant hand or other slow-moving sculpture. 90 degree swing over 90 seconds at high torque. They need an AC signal to drive them though. Not a huge deal, you can probably do PWM and get speed control too.

    Monday Maker props going out to @sireatalote @nathaniel @kile @Chainmaildave!

    We:

    • Reorganized tool board in Fab Shop

    • Plastic filmed another few windows

    • Swapped out laser computer cabinet and re-organized that area

    • sweep/vac/mop

    • Took out all garbages

    • Dishes done

    • Wiped down kitchen

    We had burgers and fries and apple pies ;)

    Ill be away Monday, but here is the updated Maker Monday list, if anyone wants to fly at er:

    • Where are all the magazines in the front hall going? Fire code issue.

    • Woodshop: go through woodshop power hand tools, assess, sort, clean, sharpen, , re-shelf them, label positions, get rid of inoperable tools

    • Woodshop: tidy wood piles, cull junk
    • make list of basic hardware we should carry. where it should go. Bring to monthly meeting to discuss if we can afford to carry basic hardware and how we manage that.
    • Hackroom: cull 5-10% of obvious junk with @pierre and @mips input
    • Hackroom: strip 3D printer shelves and reorganize?
    • As usual, sweep/vaccum/mop an area or two. The 3rd floor hall, Design Lab and Craftorium are up next.

  • Classroom

    This looks like an amazingly efficient and relatively easy project which could be done from scrap materials to help organize the wood shop/ fab shop/ hack room/ anywhere with a couple square feet of free wall space.

    If we get some cleats up on a Monday we could throw up some basic shelves and follow up with customized hangers for different tools/ display pieces in time.

    Sounds good, @kile ! See you there tonight
