Zen Woodworking Club’s Inaugural Meeting 02/13/2016

Welcome all woodworkers and would-be woodworkers to PS:One’s woodworking club, currently meeting Mondays at 6:00 p.m. and hosted by Wood Shop Authorizer, Andy L.

Thanks to all who attended the first meeting of the Zen Woodworking Club!
Many diverse woodworking interests represented, from furniture design, to carving, to antique tool restoration to tool making. We did a little tool sharpening and cut some dovetails and only lost 2 pints of blood (total)…

Here’s a guy I once met, who’s method I loosely copy for introducing dovetails.  You can also see a lot of stuff for our equipment wish list in his shop!  ~ Andy L.

Next week 2/20/16: Tool tune up and steam bending demo!
Sharpening of chisels, planes, wits. Letter carving in wood AND Joe’s steam bending box debut

Transmediale 17 (18.2.2017) – The Telekommunist International

Digital worker cat smashes a cloudIn commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Putilov Strike of 1917 and the ensuing Russian revolution, telekommunisten is organizing a day of political workshops, culminating with a delegates’ assembly on Saturday February 18th at the ver.di labour union headquarters in Berlin.

This will be followed by a commemorative celebration at c-base Space Station.

Leadership Workshop

Join us for a leadership workshop focusing on Counterpolitics, Technological Disobedience and Queering Communism.

The Workshop will be hosted by Dmytri Kleiner and Baruch Gottlieb, with presentations and facilitation by Ewa Majewska, Zeljko Blace, Daniel B. Tirado, Gavin Mendel Gleeson, Seda Gurses, and Diana McCarty.

Workshop participants will develop political vision and prepare for delivering rousing speeches at the delegate assembly.

Delegate Assembly

100 years after Russian Revolution, we find ourselves at a critical political crossroads. After decades of neoliberal, austerity politics, perpetual war and economic crisis, people are ready for a contemporary political vision for this century. Come and share your vision! We want to hear from you!

Pumping Station: One needs Makers for Maker Faire Chicago!

Maker Faire Chicago BadgeDo you make things at Pumping Station: One? Do you want to volunteer and help us show the awesomeness of PS:One at Maker Faire? We need you! Pumping Station: One will have a Makerspace booth at Maker Faire Chicago, April 22nd-23rd 2017, and we want to help you exhibit your stuff! Click HERE for our volunteer and exhibition form and let us know when you want to show your work, or when you’re free to help us set up and run our booth.

Call to MakersIf you have a larger project, or a demo, or something that you just want to show independently, you can go HERE to fill out an independent Maker Exhibit application, and make sure you let them know you want to be set up near the Pumping Station: One booth. We want a HUGE PS:One presence at this Chicago Maker Faire, so please, sign up, tell your friends, and let them know we need Makers!

NERP Next: Up to Speed on Motors (Jan 30th)

If you’re a maker, hacker or DIY person, you don’t need to understand how a motor works “under the hood” to use it. However, a bit of theory will help you make the best design choices for your thing that runs in circles. At the next NERP, Jerry Morrow will bring us up to speed on motor technology.

 

Jerry’s presentation is a full overview of DC and Brushless DC (BLDC) motors and their associated drive circutriy.  Topics include the physics of electric motors, DC motor operation, motor bridges/inverters, control topologies, motor terminology, brushless DC motor operation, hall effect and encoder position feedback, current and velocity control, Park/Clarke transformations, and Space Vector Modulation (oooh..).

People need to make things go ’round. Car wheels, train wheels, drone propellers, compressors and fans in HVAC and refrigeration, hard drives (at least for the moment), reclining seats, robots, power tools, and on and on. Motors are everywhere. The variety of sizes, shapes, and internal structures is bewildering. About the only functional elements that the different types have in common is a moving part and a stationary part joined by a changing magnetic field. Whether or how you can controll the speed, direction, torque, or power consumption depends on the type of motor. Electric motors have been around for about 150 years. Most of the older classes of motor types are still in use, still useful, and still suited to new design.

We are seeing a revolution in motor technology. Software is eating the world, and it’s finding electric motors pretty tasty. The new generation of motors depends on embedded processors to the extent that the software is as much a part of the motor as the shaft. Sophisticated driver algorithms (and in some cases new materials) are making motors smaller, stronger, and more efficient. In addition to making better citizens of existing applications, the improvements open doors to new classes of applications.

Jerry Morrow is, or has been, a bass player, electrical and computer engineering student, home rehabber, sound technician, electro-mechanical actuation software engineer, Japanese student, father, and maker, and member of Pumping Station One,  He prefers the command line, VI editor, and makefiles over IDEs, and wont hold it against you if you don’t.

NERP is not exclusively Raspberry Pi, the small computer and embedded systems interest group at Pumping Station:One in Chicago. NERP meets every other Monday at 7pm at Pumping Station:One, 3519 N. Elston Ave. in Chicago. Find NERP and Pumping Station:One at
