Soldering Wednesday!

Soldering Wednesday is the perfect open event if you don't have a project - drop by, pick up a kit, and make something cool with our members at your side.

No obligation to buy a kit - bring your own soldering project or just hang with the MakerBar crew and watch the creativity.

Current kit menu:

  • The TV-B-Gone - A universal remote that turns off any television. ANY TV. Reduce distractions at the bar, cause havoc at Best Buy, and feel like a superhero. - $25 - 2 Hours - Medium Difficulty
  • LED Mini-Flashlight - A simple squeeze-to-light flashlight that's surprisingly bright. - $5 - 15 Minutes - Super Easy
  • Der Blinkenlights - Interesting little circuit that alternates two flashing lights. The cool part? It's just transistors, capacitors, and old-school components. - $10 - 1 Hour - Medium Difficulty
  • BristleBot - Zippy little robot that buzzes around at top speed on its toothbrush body. Like HexBugs, but you build it from the ground up. - $10 - 30 Minutes - Easy

This event is open to the public.   It is an ideal time to stop in and see what the MakerBar is all about.

    My monitor stopped working. It won't turn on when its plugged in. Anybody have any ideas about how to fix it?

    Darn... turns out I can't make it Wed. Any chance there is another day next week you have a similar event, or you might know of a place in the Bay Area that has a drop by night? I have one of those TV-B-Gones and have been dying to put it together for months!

      You're in luck! We run free open house events EVERY Wednesday and Friday at 7! I'd love to show you how to solder the TV-B-Gone - I redesigned this version!
