Cambridge Teslathon

Cambridge Teslathon

Tony visited Cambridge on Saturday 25 October 2014 to see what the 'coilers' get up to - and get some ideas for projects for us. There were some seriously powerful Tesla coils there, and tiny ones for starter projects using 3D printed coil formers - designs available on Thingiverse. We also have an offer from the organiser of the Teslathons to talk to us at the Hackspace. Will arrange this over the winter season and arrange a coil building series if there is sufficient interest. I'll post a note on the discussion group for expressions of interest.

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...
