Helpful Hint

  • Try this tip for extracting screws with stripped heads. Mount a cut-off wheel in a Dremel rotary tool and cut into the screwhead without slicing into the wood surrounding the screw. Grind a slot in the screwhead at an angle to the original slot, insert your screwdriver and gingerly unscrew that battered fastener.


Safety Note

  • Ask for help when:
    • (1) You are not sure
    • (2) When it is heavy or awkward to move by yourself.

Rule and Regulation of the Week

  • With the Omicron variant of Covid beginning to impact our communities, please remember the 4 parts of the current MakerSpace Covid protocol:
    • (1) If you are vaccinated, masks are optional (see #3)
    • (2) If you are NOT vaccinated, you must wear a mask at all times.
    • (3) If you go into a work area and a member is wearing a mask, put yours on and ask them if they would like you to wear a mask. Be AWESOME regardless of vaccine status
    • (4) Trainers will set their own criteria for training sessions.

Be Safe, Stay Healthy, help keep others healthy.
