Bob from TECO Pneumatics (an 8020 distributor) will be giving a short presentation of 8020 extrusions and components and answering questions in Room 101 at the Olympia Community Center. Come one, come all! If you don't know what 8020 components are (aluminum t-slot extrusions and fasteners) the parent company's web site is: www.8020.net
I can't think of much that could not be made with it. It's great for prototyping because you generally do not have to drill holes, braze or weld and you can make changes with an allen wrench. You don't have to break welds and redrill holes to get the spacing just right (1/32" off with your drilled hole? Have fun...) .
Let's get a bunch of people to this because almost everyone, regardless of their areas of interest, could use it -and it can be a real time saver and allow more flexibility.
Bob will be giving us information about how and why to use it!
Remaining time will be used for our regular mish mash of show and tell and discussion including, but not limited to: is a pendulum a regulator or an escapment? Nicholas and I know the answer, but it's not the same answer...
