Members PAT Course

A Big Thank You to Roger for coming to our Hackspace on a Sunday to show us how to do Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) allowing us to check all the electrical items that we us in the space to make sure we are all operating safely. It was a great opportunity for our members to get themselves PAT certified, allowing them to ask lots of questions (sorry Roger if we asked too many) and get a chance to test a few items working out what the results actually mean.

Next up, testing the hundreds of appliances we have in the space...

Sugru Build Night

Sugru Build Night

Thanks to Instructables and Sugru we received a batch of free Sugru to use on our built nights in the space. With some of our members being either very silly or very scientific, we ended up building a whole range of things from a rubber attack duck (thanks to Dan) all the way to a test rig to determine the holding strength of the Sugru (thanks to Tony).

We still have about 6 packs of Sugru left, in a variety of different colours, so we have decided to run another Sugru build night on the 18th September. If you want to build something silly, fix something with this highly versatile material, want to see the result's from our test rig, or just want a chance to play with Sugru then feel free to come along. It is open to everyone of all ages so feel free to bring the family (just let us know so we know how many to expect).
