New Lathe! And Training.

Rylan and Erik delivered the new-to-us lathe at 4AM this morning. Since this is now probably our most dangerous piece of equipment, we are going to be strict about only allowing trained people to use it. If you want to be in the first group of trained people, sign up at: https://www.picatic.com/event14782110102438
$50.
NOTE: This is a two day course, two hours each day, for a total of four hours.

T-Shirt Workshop

Albert held a T-Shirt Making workshop and, this time, used his vinyl cutter to cut heat-transfer material.  (We have used laser-cut stencils in past workshops.)  The workshop was primarily attended by SCRC members making team t-shirts for the upcoming Kilobots XXXI in September.

Kurtis writes:
Workshop went great! If anyone wants to post pics of their team shirts, please do! (We’re always looking for more website content.)
Thanks to Albert for putting it on!

Soap Workshop

We held a soap-making workshop on July 23rd.

Tony writes:

“If anyone’s curious, that’s about how much soap you get from ~a yogourt container of cheap canola oil + a bit of coconut oil. It still needs to finish curing for a few weeks. Despite the remaining lye content, I washed my hands with it this morning and it is quite lovely.

Awesome workshop last night! — with Minna Liang and Scott Walde.”
