Our New Space!

Well, this post is late, but finally you can see our new space. It’s on Loma Rica Drive on the left just up from the ReStore which is on the right.


Rebar Rita is there to greet you to the location.



Inside you will find a real office space with a display area for member art.



Head left you will find a room for electronics or other cleaner arts.


And next to that is our sewing room!


And all three of these room have air conditioning, woo hoo!

Head right from the office and you’ll come into the open ceiling (for now) clay space, so nice it takes two images to do it justice.

On top of those rooms is storage for bike parts, the Soap Box Derby vehicle, and other potentially useful stuff.


Here is our metal working area.


We have space for a woodworking area as well, just not a picture at the moment.

The Shamancycle is in the space and work is proceeding! (Jeff)






Kathy Cutting Out a Clapper

Kathy is finishing up her doorbell and needed to cut off the remnants of the clapper chain on the inside. Difficult to access hard to see, and hard to cut off even with the small pneumatic cut-off saw. She persisted and got it cut out!

Steering Wheel is Set on the Shamancycle!

Steve and I spent some (lots actually) quality time mucking about with the Shamancycle this weekend. The bench seat from the London double decker bus has supports and is in place. Adjustments can be made on the seating location!. The steering wheel is now mounted to a crank from a donor bicycle, and a support is now in place for the brake pedal! Some minor corrections are needed now that the Shamancycle has been lowered to the ground as the suspension settled. The steering wheel looks great and feels great and is awesome in place. (Jeff)
