Wood Shop Setup Status 3

Greetings enthusiasts! Here’s a quick update for the setup of the woodshop portion of the hackerspace. We have a table saw, grinder, drill press, and band saw in location and nearing release for public use.

After review, we still need to get some safety features installed prior to our training course and user certification.

Table Saw:

  • Bolt for blade guard
  • Safety documentation

Drill Press:

  • Safety Switch (new switch for power has been installed.)
  • Drill bit set
  • Safety documentation

Table Grinder:

  • New grinder disk and adhesive
  • Safety documentation
  • Safety switch

Band Saw:

  • Safety guard for drive motor and belt
  • Safety switch
  • Safety documentation

We have a planned shop open date of the 29th of March with our first safety and certification courses that either the 30th or the 6th of April. We will update soon!

    When will the waterjet be installed?

      We’ve had some interest in a waterjet, especially from some of the companies we are sharing the space with and I personally would totally love to get one. It’s all about the capital investment though. If we can find a way to finance it, we’ll absolutely go for it! Let us know if you have any ideas.
