This week we will be working on getting some Makerspace tech equipment tested and working. We will be using for the first time a brother Innovis 4500D Duetta computerized embroidery sewing machine and a 3034D Brother serger. We received this equipment quite a while ago but, we were waiting on the laser cutter to arrive to cut the fabric to be used with other projects. Since we never receive the laser cutter we ordered, we think it's about time to take these machines out of the box for members to use. Other makerspaces have had success with using this type of equipment and family members whom are not interested in the typical microcomputers and programming, etc.
I also would like to thank members and Makerspace supporters for last week's help request. Our listing on the national makerspace list was taken off line due to hacking and is now up and running again. As for the laser cutter we ordered almost half a year ago, our lawyers have finally had contact with the company we purchased our laser cutter from, and they sent our lawyers an e-mail starting that the refund check is being mailed out we us. To date we have not received the check, but we hope it will be here soon. They for some reason did not give us a tracking number or any information on the refund payment method. It's still a good start in getting our laser cutter purchased from another company.
Equipment list for this meeting:
Other projects we are working on include:
Fixing the UltaMaker.
Working the ShapeOko CNC and getting a first good test print with a wood sample.
Getting a working print and settings with our DLP light 3D printer called B9Creator

Other members who may need help on their projects.
If you have any projects you are working on, feel free to bring it to Reverse Space! We have locked storage space, hundred of tools and electronics, and the largest sections of free to use 3D printers for any Makerspace (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hackerspace) on the east coast of the US. At this time membership is free.
