Meeting Other Makers

Started this discussion. Last reply by Bryan Paul Sullo May 15, 2013. 4 Replies

I use the term "other" loosely, as I don't deem myself skilled enough to be called a "maker", but. . .One can only learn so much on the Internet. How can I find local people who like to make stuff…Continue

Ninth Annual "What the Fluff?" Marshmallow Fluff Festival at Union Square

September 27, 2014 from 3pm to 7pm
It's the lighter (and Fluff-ier) side of steampunk!“What the Fluff?: A Tribute to Union Square Invention” honors the illustrious Fluff creator, Archibald Query, who concocted the gooey sticky spread right here in Union Square in 1917. On Saturday, September 27, 2014 local artists, musicians, theatrical performers, inventors, and humorists pay madcap tribute to the creation of this great American foodstuff on two stages. For the ninth annual “What the Fluff?” festival we’re thinking of the early…See More

"Thank you, captain, for your reply. What I'm talking about is the inner structure. There will not be a real hand inside, so something needs to provide structural integrity. I think I've hit upon the solution by using a small, squarish…"

Working with PVC

Greetings, all, and thanks to you in advance for whatever assistance you can provide.I am currently working on a life-sized, articulated brass hand, to be controlled by cables and springs. I have the design for the fingers worked out, and I've got one put together, which seems to be working. I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out what to attach all the fingers to, and I finally came up with the idea for using a PVC structure for the hand/palm.This structure doesn't need to move or…See More
