July's Sheet Metal Bending Class!

Kim bending metal!

In July's sheet metal bending class, we walked through using tools in the space to bend and form sheet metal.  The work was based on a template for making cell phone holders!  Thanks Victor for sharing your knowledge!

 

Look for a write up of the class notes in the near future!

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!
