Jan 6, 2018 - Saturday Cleanup, Potluck, and Game Night All rolled into one!

By Brad Walsh on

Not this coming Saturday, but the sixth of January, we'll have a Clean-up in the afternoon - let's say at 2 - and then that evening, we'll do a potluck and game night. This'll give members who can't show up on Tuesday nights a chance to attend a potluck.

The theme for the potluck will be "Foods with Vowels in their Names". Greg is bringing Skyline Chili Dip, which qualifies with several vowels. He might also bring a pistachio cake.
The theme for the clean-up will be organization. Try and get stuff in its proper place, creating one if one doesn't exist.
The theme for game night will be decided later. Bring any game you want. Even two- or three-person games are fine. Don't bring Monopoly. Monopoly destroys friendships.

Non-members lurking on here? Show up for the game night/potluck. Meet Hive people.

Thanks to Mike, Tim and Nancy for helping with the learn to solder table at the 2017 Books by the Banks event.

I think we did over 200 boards! I don't think we made any children cry this time. :)

Vacuum Former is Alive!

By Brad Walsh on

Just in time for Halloween, the vacuum former created its first parts today for member Bill.

Bill was making a case for an old TI computer. It turned out awesome and Bill showed us some of the tricks for making a good vacuum formed part.

We survived CinMaker Faire 2017

By Brad Walsh on

Thanks to everyone that helped at the Cincinnati MiniMaker Faire 2017.
We tossed some basketballs on Saturday and did many Learn to Solder lessons Saturday and Sunday.

Because of the rain on Sunday we did not setup the Trebuchets outside, we setup one to be balanced with a watermelon by the LTS booth. :)
The teardown was interesting but we were able to disassemble both Trebuchets and fit them (and the LTS stuff) in our minivan. Since it was raining we elected to do the unload on Tuesday before the meeting.

Thanks again to everyone that helped out! I think it was a good time and we made some kids day a bit more special. (Especially the one that we made cry). ;)

Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire 2017

Hive13 will be part of the upcoming Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire October 7th and 8th at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds.

https://cincinnati.makerfaire.com/

We will be demonstrating Will's Trebuchet (currently launching basketballs over 80ft) and a Learn to Solder station to make blinky badges.
It would be nice to have some touchy projects that we can show off at the LTR booth. Maybe some cool 3D prints.
Feel free to come down and volunteer to man the basketball chucker or the LTS booth (you can get free admission). :)
