You asked for it, and we got it! One of most requested items in our events poll was welding, and our very own member Kit has graciously offered to demonstrate the basics this Saturday at noon at the Space. Please be aware that this is a hands-on demonstration only – it is not a replacement for any actual welding training, and can be very dangerous.
We will be covering the three types of arc welding as well as plasma cutting, starting with a safety lecture, a group how-to, then a short one-on-one section. After everyone has been shown the basics and demonstrates a thorough understanding of the concepts and inherent dangers, we will offer participants the chance to try it themselves.
If you wish to participate, please sign up at http://www.midsouthmakers.org/events so that we can know how many people to expect.
What: A demonstration of basic welding and techniques as well as important safety guidelines that you must follow, with a brief hands-on opportunity for those interested at the end.
When: This Saturday, December 3rd at Noon.
Cost: $10 (to cover the cost of the welding fuel and materials involved)
What to Bring: Make sure that you wear long-sleeves, and preferably nothing loose or flammable.
Hello to all you atoms out there!
Are you ready to get this laser going?!
You call that a response? It sounds like you’re in a ground state out there, and I’m going to need you at least two or three levels above that! That’s right, I’m going to need you to get excited tonight! Come, on let’s get this population inverted!
Hey, that’s better! It looks like some atoms in the back have a nice wavelength going – let’s all join in for a cascading effect!
If you’re digging this gain medium, let me see you get amplified!
Yeah, now you’re getting your photons in step!
What: The Midsouth Makers are hosting a laser class and demonstration! The goal is to demystify lasers and how they operate. For the demonstration, we will be etching some aluminum business cards with your designs, which you will then be able to take home with you!
When: November 19th at Noon
Where: The Space
Cost: $10 for Midsouth Makers Members, $20 for Non-Members. (The price covers both the business cards and the cost to run the laser)
What to Bring: Please bring a laptop on which you can design your business card. The cards themselves are 3.5” by 2”, and we ask that you try to come with your design ready to go, but open to changes if necessary.
