July 19, 2019 Shop Log

I finally was able to spend some time at the shop, using the X-Carve to create a battery pack storage tray for all my USB battery packs.

I also fired up the Stacker 3D Printer to print a lid for the Ender 3 Universal Rear Electronics Enclosure.

A couple of days ago, I finished making another Solar Charging Station.

I haven’t used the Millermatic 211 MIG Welder in a long time. The last few days ago I started welding together new Solar Charging Station Frames to replace the wooden weather-worn ones I had made a couple of years ago. I created Solar Charging Stations and placed them around the Amphitheater to power time lapse cameras and work lights.
I used SketchUp 2019 to design the replacements, using 1″ steel tube, 1-1/2″ angle steels and 2″ flat steel. I’ll use 2″ muffler clamps to mount some of the stations onto 2″ diameter poles.
My welding and assembly got better with practice.
