7 Ladies of Maker Faire

My buddy Denise H. just texted me about the 7 Ladies of Maker Faire! Apparently I'm one of them.
Thanks Maker Faire!

Gigantic gears!

Corey and I have been using the Tormach CNC mill at Techshop SF to mill out some very big gears. These gears take about eight hours to mill and we need at least four (but we're probably going to make six). We've taken lots of time in figuring out a better (and maybe a little faster) way to make them. Did I mention there're big?

The square blanks at the top of the last image are for some internal gears we are also going to mill.


Bones! In Nov. and Dec. we milled out all of the bones (linkages) we need using the Tormach CNC mill at Techshop SF. What a fabulous tool!
