We’ve got some exciting new additions at the makerspace thanks in part to funding from CanNor!
In the wood shop there’s two new King Industrial sanders:an oscillating spindle sander and a belt and disc sander.
The sewing room also features two brand new machines: a Janome serger and a Singer industrial sewing machine. A serger, also known as an overlock machine, is a tool that allows you to quickly finish edges on your sewing projects and the second industrial sewing machine promises to be easier to maintain and use than our existing vintage machine.
In the digital fabrication room, between the laser cutters, you’ll find the newly installed Pocket NC 5-axis CNC mill. This machine is part of YuKonstruct’s Instructables Makerspace Contest winnings.
Finally, the hackerspace now has an EinScan-S desktop 3D scanner, so you can easily make 3D digital models of real objects!
See the makerspace’s full list of tools on the Equipment page.
While not exactly equipment, you’ll likely notice that seating in the computer lab is much more comfortable these days with the bonus addition of new-to-us office chairs for all the computer stations.
