It's the 20th anniversary of the Harry Potter universe and to celebrate Arch Reactor is hosting a series of Wand Making Parties in August!   

Arch Reactor is making wands for an upcoming fundraising event and is Sharing the Fun!      Stop by AR on August 12, 14, 19, 21, and 25 (see calendar for times) to make Wands!   

This class is free and all basic supplies will be available.   Please make several wands if you have time, choose your favorite to keep and give the rest to our fundraiser!    (One wand per person, please, regardless of how many times you attend)

Children are welcome but will require parental supervision.   Parents are warned that we will be using hot glue guns so caution and attention is required!   Acrylic paint is also involved so please dress accordingly.

We are a little short of glue guns this year, so please bring along a glue gun that takes "mini" glue sticks if you have one.

It was a busy night at Arch Reactor Sunday. Some members were programming in java and laser etching in the clean lab. Mean while in the dirty shop. One member was forging a bearded hatchet, another was overhauling our south bend lathe, and a final member was using the Bridgeport to build parts for his battle bot. It was a cool cross section of the knowledge and capabilities at Arch Reactor.

Arch Reactor has new, larger laser!

In many ways the new laser is much like the original.   The materials it will cut are the same, the laser software is the same, and preparing images is the same.   The main differences are the "on switches", the size, and the focus.   

The Laser Guide has been updated with some of the new information.    Check it out here:   https://archreactor.org/project/laser-cutter-guide

About Our Hackerspace

Arch Reactor was founded in 2009 by a group of friends who liked technology, programming, making, and pizza. Now St. Louis' largest hackerspace, Arch Reactor's growing membership continues to bring new skills, projects, equipment, and people to one place.

For a deeper understanding of what we're about, you should check out our explanation of hackerspaces, perhaps read about one of our members' projects, or (best of all) come meet us in person at the next open event!
