  • Not sure what's going on with the drawer module or what needs to be added... Not at OSE, not at the meetings. Perhaps an Edit Check-in sheet would help with remote collaboration? Either at the end or the start until the presentation is "stable"?

Thursday, June 12, 2014

  • Updated what I understood needed to be changed for CEB Press Drawer Module.

Thursday, June 5, 2014

  • Created presentation for Pool Deck Swarm Build

  • Updated for CEB Press Drawer Module.

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

  • Inspired by Gundam modelling instructions

Tuesday, June 3, 2014

  • Started the instructions for CEB Press Drawer Module.

Monday, June 2, 2014

  • Finished the instructions for Modular deck construction.

  • Gundam Instructions- Possible for our 50 machines? [[File:]]

Friday, May 24, 2014

  • Planted Sweet Potatoes
  • Drew some possible pool deck setups

Thursday, May 23, 2014

  • Put up panels on the back of the house to prevent rain from getting on to the floor

  • tap and die (thread cutter)
  • Grinded all sharp corners of the arms
  • iron workers- hole puncher, cutter

Saturday, April 27, 2014

  • torching seams and bending with a hammer is faster and energy conserving than cutting off and re-welding, but less accurate
  • wielding warps, but some parts don't need as much quality control for it to matter





Friday, April 26, 2014

  • Breifly learned MIG welding (coper, temprature, feed), torching (oxegen, acetylene), grinding, and cutting
