Note:  Eclipse Glasses will be available at Arch Reactor at the following dates/times:

Tuesday, August 15, from 6:30pm - close

Saturday, August 19, from 12:30pm - 4:30PM

Suggested price is $1/pair

Eclipse Glasses are sold-out at most of the NASA-Approved Vendors, so this sight is all too common.

One of our AR Members purchased glasses last fall and still has many available.  

Please be safe watching the eclipse!    All glasses at AR are from NASA-Approved Vendors!

Arch Reactor's newest tool, a 16" swing South Bend metal lathe, has now been positioned and powered. With its addition Arch Reactor's metal shop is mostly complete. Between the lathe, mill, and welding equipment we now have all the machinery needed to repair and build upgrades for all of our equipment, as well as bring our projects to the next level. Between the machines we can now cut threads, gears, bushings, and precision pieces

Please do not use it if you have not been trained. This machine is dangerous... like remove your arm dangerous. If you have been trained on a metal lathe it is operational and available for use. Please note the chuck tool DOES NOT have a self-ejecting feature. My first project will be to lighten it and add a spring so it can't be left in the chuck, but for now if you use the machine, TRIPLE check you did not leave it there. Classes for its operation will begin soon; keep an eye on the calendar and meetup.com for them to be posted.

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!
