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.

Arch Reactor will be hosting several Pysanky (Ukrainian Egg) workshops in April.   Stop by and decorate your own beautiful egg.

April 2:  2pm - 9pm

April 4 - 7pm - 10pm (with break for the business meeting)

April 9 - 2pm - 9pm

April 11 - 7pm - 10pm

<!--break-->

Supplies will also be available for independent work between April 2 - 11 whenever the space is open

 

 

More information including a detailed powerpoint on the process at:  https://archreactor.org/project/pysanky-eggs

 

Please plan on a minimum of 3 hours to make an egg.  There's a lot of "waiting time" in this craft, thus it's easy to complete two eggs in nearly the same amount of time as making one.  

 

Not suitable for younger children.

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!
