CT Hackerspace welcomes the Connecticut area Home Shop Machinist group on April14th at 2pm. The Connecticut area Home Shop Machinist group is a local community of Hobbyist machinists and enthusiasts. This is an excellent opportunity to meet other hobbyists and learn new techniques or share your projects with others.
Home shop machining is often a solitary hobby, as are most hobbies now according to “Bowling Alone”. The the Connecticut area Home Shop Machinist group (CTHSM) is an attempt to get area Home Shop Machinists’s to know one another, and thus make our hobby a little less solitary and more fun for everyone. The Connecticut HSM Group usually meets on the Sunday each month at local member’s shops. We are honored and excited to host the CTHSM meeting at our space. Please join us for an interesting afternoon.
CT Hackerspace wishes the best of luck to our friend Jack G. as he is moving south. Jack wishes to GIVE back to our cause by donating some items, including a 60Watt Co2 Laser!! We are meeting at CT Hackerspace and carpooling to the Vernon area to pickup items, and then returning to unload at the hackerspace. We need volunteers to help . ( A truck is already secured for the day)
Recent changes have put the future of our 4′ x 8′ CNC Machine on notice! One of our members last year had become the 100% CNC investor for CT Hackerspace CNC, and had purchased the unit and kept in on site with an agreement of permanent loan. Unfortunately, circumstances have changed and the owner is moving away. We again are in a position to return to fundraising. We DO have the funds already given in the past but we are still falling short of the total.
YOU can help carve out a permanent home for our 4’x8′ CNC Machine before it goes! Your immediate action can change this outcome.
An agreement has been made that the hackerspace can buy back the machine permanently.. If our users and supporters feel strong enough to make this permanent purchase for the space, now is the time. Replacement machinery would go for at least twice as much as well as coordinating efforts to build a new one from scratch. Keeping this unit is a far more attractive option – if the community acts now!
