We will be designing and making the pattern for our steampunk mask. The type of mask is like a dust mask. It will fit over the nose and mouth.
Kansas City: See Yourself as Never Before
Maker Faire Preparation
Make:KC - Where Kansas City's Maker Faire's Began...
The Maker Faire in Kansas City is less than eight weeks away. If you haven't looked at the MakerFaire.com web site, Kansas City has been elevated from its mini maker faire status last year to one of the top four in the country this year, alongside Detroit. Remember the BTC Fab Lab is here with equipment and space to work on your projects. It's accessible to the community and at a discount for Make:KC members. This month we have presentations about getting your Power Wheels Racer in tip top shape for another series of exciting racing. The Fab Lab has a new metal fabricator that makes easy work of bending metals for a customized chassis to support your souped up Power Wheels.
Many of our Make:KC members are exhibiting in the Maker Faire. This two day event presents challenges for each exhibitor and your help is needed. If you aren't exhibiting but would like to become involved with this exciting event please use our contact form or email us at MakersMail@MakeKC.org
We had a great start with room for new people to join.
We need to add tops and bottoms and a hinge.
Okay, I have a van load of electric radiator fans that need to be scrapped. I am asking for help to disassemble them and harvest the motors. The motors are powerful enough for power sports racing so this would be a good start for some of you. The plastics have to be trashed unfortunately and anything else that can be recycled we will do so with.
I also have a load of rear view mirrors with electric positioners in them. These would be good for small robotics and such.
The welding helmet contains video display eyepieces that allow you to see the workpiece plus visual cues to assist in showing you proper weld angle, weld speed, proper distance to work piece and more.
