Financial Outlook

At >$1.4k, we have a sufficient reserve to make major repairs (~$300) to 3D printer, CNC mill, and laser cutter simultaneously. Supplies funding should now be reduced to a trickle in favor of EXPANSION.

Recent Purchases

Spare Prusa Mendel hot-end ($87.00). Laser cutter upgrade materials ($18.19). Small plastic containers. Useful as storage for small parts, solder paste tools, or laser cutter stock ($13.72).

Prusa Mendel

Ordered waterjet laser cut custom glass bed. Unfortunately, it cracked on installation, so I have eaten the >$68 cost :'(. Continuing attempts to laser cut, or manually cut, a new sheet of glass. Alternatively, an overlay may be used, see the red plastic mounted over glass on the printer.


Member Reports

Martin - HARC Technician License prep class 11/13 and FCC License exam session 11/23. David and I are wrapping up installation of a donated asterisk server and VOIP phones at St. Stephan's.
