The featured image is a picture I took while machining some copper parts I made for a scientific rocket payload. I programmed the Prototrak CNC in the Idea Forge Shop to produce the parts.
I’ve had a lot of experience building and manufacturing things over the years. I’m pretty confident in my manufacturing and crafting skills. This list consists of things I’ve had a lot of experience with and am comfortable doing. I’ll admit there’s always more I can learn on these subjects, and I’m more than willing to do so. I can provide help with any of the following:
- Machine shop skills – Mill (manual and Prototrak), Lathe, Drill Press, Saws, Routing, Sanding, Grinding, Polishing
- Software skills – CAD (SolidWorks, OnShape), Matlab, EES, Altium, Arduino, Photoshop
- Craft skills – Woodwork, Sewing (by hand and machine: quilting, clothing, accessories, general), Laser Cutting, 3D Printing, Melting Aluminum, Bead Work/Jewelry, Tinkering, Knitting, Gluing
- Other skills – Soldering, Gardening, Cooking, Fish Keeping, Organization, Planning
I’m sure there’s a few things I’m missing here, so I’ll add them as I think of them. Just for fun, I added a few images of some of my projects.
