Saskatoon TechWorks Store!

Do you have a project idea but don’t want to wait 6-8 weeks for an order to arrive from eBay? Did you know that Saskatoon TechWorks has a store that is stocked with a variety of common items you might want to use in your project?  Browse our inventory here.  Now, admittedly, it’s a bit heavy on the Micro/Arduino side. What would YOU like to see stocked in our store? Let me know!

Yes, I did work at Radio Shack back in the early 90s.  Why do you ask?

3D Print All The Things

The 3D Printers at Techworks are working great!

The Makerbot Replicator 2 is relatively low maintenance and does a great job.

And, despite what anyone says, the Solidoodle 3 still works just fine when you use fresh ABS filament.  (Don’t use that green stuff that was hanging in the window at the old space.)

(The arms are drooping because I printed him without supports.)

Printing some replacement parts for the enclosure.

New Laser Cutter!

The new laser cutter/engraver is up and running! It has a 40cm x 60cm cut area, and does a beautiful job of rastering.

I have tested it on plywood, hardboard, and Rowmark LaserMax with good results. Suggested settings will be collected on the Wiki as we determine them.
