  • Not feeling so well today.
  • The Shapeoko was put to work cutting out foam mount backers for Amphitheater Concession TV mounts. The mounts are being hung on a split-faced block wall, which is rough and uneven. The foam backer is to “even” out the mounting surface.
  • The Stacker 3D Printer was working on printing out some more spray can rack mounts, to get MakerCave better organized.
  • I worked on setting up operating systems on SD cards for two new Raspberry Pi Security Camera.
  • I flipped on the Muse Laser Cutter nd Engraver for a pushed software update. It hasn’t come through yet.
  • The MakerCave iMac is also undergoing updates.

  • While cleaning MakerCave, I made an assessment of the scrap materials available and made this wire spool holder for the electronics workspace.

  • I grabbed some measurements of the water flow sensor and sketched out a mount.

  • I installed the tee on the water cooling inlet for the K40 Laser Engraver and Cutter. I turned on the water pump to check for leaks and heard the activation of the switch in the sensor, a good sign.

  • In preparation of updating the firmware on my Deltaprintr, I installed Arduino IDE 1.0.6 and the other necessary libraries on the electronics workspace laptop. I was able to successfully able to compile the stock firmware.

  • While at it, I also installed QtDMM on the electronics workspace laptop, which allows me to read and record the readings from my TekPower DT9602R Multimeter.

  • I managed to clean off one work surface.

  • I managed to gather several dust piles around the shop.
