Saturday at the HF

December 18th, 2010 by Booka

I stopped down to play with some passive solar concept I had for removing Ice Dams on my roof, and I found Pete working on his CNC rig (he professed to be there to work on drawers, but he must have gotten inspired on the rig.)


Hack Factory Cleanup Day, Saturday Sept. 11

September 8th, 2010 by Booka

Reminder that this Saturday is the Fall cleanup day for our space. Starting at 9 am we will try to organize and clean our space. The plan is to work on specific areas, with one person taking lead for each of the major areas. Right now only one person has stepped up and agreed to lead the Metal Working area.

This is your space and it needs your attention, we have to organize surplus/supplies, clean, build storage, identify items we still need to acquire and throw out some junk.

If you cannot make it Saturday, you as members, can access the space any time you want. Help by sweeping the shop floor, setting up PCs with Ubuntu for our lab, clean a fridge, sort the donations near the supply area, build storage for tools, surplus, stock.

A couple hours makes a dent, and it helps us show off the space to future members and visitors.

About Noon I will start a grill, so bring your grillables and we can enjoy our accomplishments and hopefully a wonderful Fall afternoon.

Thank You to everybody working on, or has worked on the SMM Make Day Event

June 19th, 2010 by Booka

We as an organization need to become much more public for many reasons including survival, and Sunday’s event will go a long ways to getting our group some “face time” with others who may be interested.

But to make a good impression, many of our members have been working on displays, projects, and promotions that need to be done to have a successful day. Also there are those who have given up their Sunday afternoon to be there to be our public face.

We all owe these people a thank you, for their time, effort and desire to make the TCMaker group a success. This group thrives or dies on our efforts, and these folks have shown that they want to thrive, so I for one thank everybody for their efforts.
