I am casting a new tv show for a major production company.

We are searching nationwide for Inventors, entrepreneurs, or everyday people who after experiencing a natural disaster were inspired to create a new product, gadget, or device. Whether it was the current virus, hurricane, earthquake, flood, fire, blizzard, pandemic, or other natural disasters we are looking to find inventions, products, or gadgets created due to that experience.

We want to tell their stories and show their inventions to the world! We are looking to showcase people whose ideas have already gone to market, are in production, or at a minimum have a working prototype.

Please feel free to share this information and the casting flyer with anyone you think might be interested.

To be considered for the project please complete our casting application using the website on the flyer.

We are only casting for a couple of weeks so get those applications in soon.
FYI.
With parts form Lowes/Home Depot and open source software, we can DIY much needed ventilators.

Hi, when is the next opportunity to learn how to use the wood working tools? (Planer, table saw, band sander). Thanks!
Hey guys, are you still active and in operation? I haven't been by to see the new space and have some middle school students interested in what you have going on. Please let me know what is up
Question for the group. Looking for a good resolution 3d printer with larger print bed. Its been awhile since I've looked or messed around in that arena. Do you have a few suggestions of what to look at? Thanks.
Hey you guys. You could do this at Reforge and make your own 3D printing filament.

Introduction to TIG/GTAW welding

https://buff.ly/2Zejt2Q Into to TIG/GTAW welding. New class with limited space, June 20th 6:30PM. Focus of class will be on the DC TIG process which works extremely well on steel (taught by Aaron Vanguard). Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), also known as tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, is an arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld. The weld area and electrode is protected from oxidation or other atmospheric contamination by an inert shielding gas (argon or helium), and a filler metal is normally used, though some welds, known as autogenous welds, do not require it.

There will be about 45 minutes of basic theory with hands-on 'tips & tricks' followed by 45 minutes of shop time.

Suggested class fee $20 donation with members receiving $10 off. Payments can be made in person or ahead of time at https://buff.ly/2UpqhMr (enter class name in the notes section).

Error! - Reforge Charleston (Charleston, SC) | Meetup

https://buff.ly/2Wda4vt Last chance to sign up for the second part in a series of DIY Robotics tonight at 6:30pm.

In the second class of our DIY robotics series, students will learn how to make their bot interact with the world around it using buttons, sonar, piezo buzzers, and LEDs. Topics include programming loops and if/else statements that will allow your bot to process sensor data, installing the buttons and sensors themselves, using the data you collect to control a piezo buzzer, and how to combine this knowledge to make everything from a motion detector to a music box.

Students attending this class will be invited to attend an upcoming robotics work-session at no additional charge.

An upcoming class will delve deeper motor control, mobile power supplies, and chassis assembly, culminating in the construction of a small but functional robot.

* Please bring a laptop if you have one. We will have some computers available.
