This week (I may have forgotten last week's post!) the hackspace was a little quiet but still lots going on, including:

  • Birthday cakes for Tim and Ben (Tim's cake was rather excellently cooked by Nicholas)
  • Archie, Dan, Ann and Barny tried some SMD soldering, and also tried to convert a toaster oven to do reflow with not much success and a lot of melted components
  • Ben showed off his awesome 3DPburner DIY laser engraver
  • More testing and development work was done on the ESP8266/Accelerometer project (and a prototype PCB was designed and ordered)
  • Lots of chatting on how best to measure laser cutter usage and current on the laser tube
  • Toby was getting his Raspberry Pi / Atmel ATTiny85 mains current monitoring boards working
  • Alan and Tony continued workshop improvements
  • James played with a LoRaN shield, and is considering how best to use this
  • Steven used the mortiser for the first time


Some crazy laser dude ;)

This week, we hope to recieve some LED panels (to build a video wall with), and continue some personal projects (perhaps some outside ones as the weather's so nice.
