Helpful Hint

  • For a long, happy, healthy membership at the Makerspace: be sure to NEVER use the craft lab scissors outside of the craft lab.
  • Seriously, these fine cutting tools should only be used where appropriate (e.g. cutting fabric)
  • If you have questions, ask Kathy H or Karen P.
  • When it comes to the craft lab scissors it is NOT better to ask for forgiveness than ask for permission.


Safety Note

  • Metal can be, and frequently is, both sharper and hotter than it looks.

Rule and Regulation of the Week

  • A section from the New Member Pamphlet (on the WIKI): Donations go to the hack-rack, but remember the rule is if you donate something to the hack-rack you must take something away of equal volume. If its something larger or you don't want to take anything from the hack-rack you should post to the public message board first before donating. Only donate if you can find a person interested in the donation.
  • As the Woodshop Champion wrote on the woodshop door white board: a hack rack is not a dumpster.

Member Topics and Announcements

* Carl S: FUSION 360 classes are now held at NORWICH (moving from Lenox) at 7 PM. Classes can be attended in person, or virtually (Carl will send you the link). Thank you Carl.

  • These classes are now being recorded and are available for viewing on You Tube. Carl will send you the link.

* CERAMICS AND CERVEZAS every Wednesday..
