Our 4′ X 8′ CNC Router takes a step forward!

With a lot of hard work from Ed H. and Steve P. our 4′ x 8′ CNC router has achieved a milestone, instead of the X axis sitting on the ground it has taken a leap up and is now mounted, ready for the Y and Z axis to be mounted to it along with the electronics and motion control.

Blacksmithing and Casting are here!

A Picture of hooks!

Over the weekend three of our members forged out of steel some great hooks to organize some of our metal casting supplies. Dan, Matt W. and Steve used the blacksmith forge and anvil to create the metal hooks shown here. The hooks were then mounted to a board which was mounted to the wall. Now our metal casting safety clothing along with our lifting tongs and pouring tongs have a neat place to reside!
