Re: Sony Trinitron Flatscreen

I think it would be very useful as one of the displays in the classroom. If the group consensus is "no more crts please", I would happily be able to find a spot for it on my desk, and would offer a delicious pound of starbucks coffee as a thank you. But I really do think it would be nice ...

Sony Trinitron Flatscreen

This is a 19" or so Sony Trinitron flatscreen CRT.
It works fine, but I have no room for it.

Does anyone see a use for it at the HackerSpace?
I give Hacker Space first dibs!

Re: Wood Joinery Class possible - Interested Parties?

A special thanks to Chris and SoldierSquared for running this class! I had a great time, and the quality of the handout was very high. The way I found out about it was via google calendar. I have added it as a parallel calendar and whenever I look at my schedule I can also peruse events coming up at...

Re: Kayaking

Wilderness Systems boats are great starter boats and they sell back into the market well. Also Piranha has a flatwater line that Midwest has been selling and those are also great all-purpose boats. My suggestion is to go to Hoigaards and try a few out. You just tell them which ones you want to test ...

EXPIRED - About 4 pieces of 1/4" frosted acrylic sheets

Heya, I'm wondering if TC Maker would be interested in about 4 panels of frosted acrylic. The stock is about 2.5 feet wide and pieces are about 4 ft long. The company I work for was moving and was getting rid of a trade show booth that was made mostly of this stuff and extruded aluminum framing. Aft...

Kvar inductive load balancing

Heya, I went to the Living Green Expo last weekend, and I saw a very nice VAWT on display by mnwind.us they also had a neat little bank of capacitors product that showed off the "slowing down" of a power meter due to local inductive load balancing of these capacitors. The product is called...

Re: What do we have? An equipment and skills inventory

Well, I managed after two hours (two sawing and beer sessions), to use my crosscut handsaw to make a 3" slab: http://gitchi-gammi.no-ip.com/filedump/IMG_20110415_184848.jpg Knowing that I'd never again want to spend that much quality time sawing one slab, I decided to make a raker blade bow saw...

Re: What do we have? An equipment and skills inventory

Heya! I'm looking to cut two slab pieces and then quarter the rest of the log for use in lathe bowls. These would all need to age (dry out more) before use. I've got one slice already and picked up a 24" raker blade yesterday to cut the second slice. The 14" bandsaw would come in handy for...

Re: What do we have? An equipment and skills inventory

Heya. Does the hack factory have anything that would easily cut this ? http://gitchi-gammi.no-ip.com/filedump/IMG_20110414_222220.jpg it's about 16"x 16". I tried starting at it with a hand saw -- and I WILL prevail! -- but probably only want to do that once. I'm cutting 3" slabs at f...
