• S.E. Michigan CNC Enthusiast Group

    Maker Works

    For folks who want to get started with CNC as well as veterans to share information. Focus of the group is anything CNC-related: projects, additive machines like the Makerbot or subtractive mills, CAD, CAM, and the holy war of issues like Servos vs. Steppers, NURBS vs. Meshes, and EMC2 vs. Mach3. Meetings are normally on the first Wednesday of the month (except when they land on a holiday and Maker Works is closed), free and open to everyone and you don't have to be a member of Maker Works to attend. With the approach of winter, if the weather is too inclement for safe travel, the meeting may be cancelled if conditions warrant it. Any CNC-related topic is game and if you have something to show off, please bring it. For more info, visit: SEMICNC Yahoo! Group (https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/semicnc/info)

    Maker Works

    The mission of The Open Organization Of Lockpickers is to advance the general public knowledge about locks and lockpicking. By examining locks, safes, and other such hardware and publicly discussing our findings, we hope to strip away the mystery with which so many of these products are imbued. All are welcome. If you have any locks or tools, feel free to bring them. If not, there is plenty to go around. Meetings generally consist of people picking locks while we talk about physical or cyber security, or just about anything else.

  • Fix-It Friday - FREE!

    Maker Works

    Bring your well-worn or broken items that could use a tune up, and we'll take a look at them! Or, make someone else's day by volunteering at Fix-It Friday and repairing their items. (Yes, you can come help fix and watch things get fixed, just for the fun of it!) Fix-It Friday: Think of this as the last chance before you get rid of something; Free, but no Guarantee. We will: - try to diagnose what is wrong - tell you if we think we may be able to fix it today - tell you if you'll need a part, and where you might be able to get it - try to fix it to the best of our ability, but in the limited time we have However, we may not be able to fix it. Many products are not designed to be fixed, and just opening them up may damage them. Furthermore, we may not have someone on hand with the expertise to do a proper repair. Also, it may require a special part, tools, information, or materials to repair, or it may just require more time than we have. We may end up damaging your item even more. Please let the repairer know how comfortable you are at each stage of diagnosis and repair. Items that are often easier to repair: lamps, types of toys, broken wires, things that need epoxy/wood glue Items that are often very difficult to repair: consumer electronics such as CD/Cassette boom boxes, TVs, radios, CD players, VCRs, and DVD players. Wizards of electronics are often present, though, so it's worth a shot!
