A few months ago I received this Decaker Micro Laser Engraver from GearBest and finally I’ve had some time to do the review. This will be a short overview, since you can read my full review here. Starting with the basics, this has a 1000mW laser head and a engraving area of just 38×38 mm. It works on paper, card, wood, plastic and leather, as long as it’s not a reflective material.
A few months ago we got the amazing news that our project 3D Printed DNA Lamp was one of the winners of the instructables 3D printing contest! As a reward we received the Kossel Mini Kit 3D printer, so here’s the unboxing, review and … upgrade? (I’ll explain later :P)
We recently got our hands on the Dangerous Prototypes Logic Pirate, which is an inexpensive open source logic analyzer. While it’s cool to see the PCB and the entire circuitry, this is the kind of thing that you’re gonna end up carrying it with you a lot, since it’s a useful tool, therefore our first thought was that it needed a proper enclosure to protect it from the rough environment that is the tool kit! And, since we have a LulzBot 3D printer, why not design a cool looking case that we can use.
We were all here pretty excited when we got the terrific news that our Hackerspace had been one of the winners! So, obviously everybody in eLab wanted to be here for the grand unraveling and “test drive” of our new 3D printer, after all it felt like an amazing Christmas morning 😛
Here are the new tools on eLab Hackerspace 😀
- Power drill 500 W
- 5 Power extension cord
- Dexter saw
- 204 Piece mini-drill accessories toolset
- Toolset – 17 hand tools + 20 bits (Slotted, Philips, Torx, Hex)
We finally had a chance to acquire some tools and materials that were missing in eLab, so that everyone can have better conditions to develop projects, workshops and other events.
