[FREE] Vinyl floor covering about 10' x 10' of it. See pic. Respond ASAP if interested. I'm not going to clean it, but should clean very easily with a hose or power wash if you have that available. It's just got dirt and dust from Asylum. Pick up only.



   

Thanks.

  Metal cuts needed for sustainability startup
Posted by: diana_cWL - 07-24-2021, 12:57 AM - Forum: Have it Made - No Replies

Hi!

My team is new to the AA community. We are a mission-driven startup developing low-cost sustainable waste-shrinking toilets for poor communities that lack sewerage infrastructure. We’re on a tight timeline to get a new design of our toilets ready and tested ahead of a pilot trial with indigenous communities in Central America this Fall. 

We’re looking for some help to get some metal pieces fabricated for our in-house testing unit. We actually have many of the raw materials, just need help to get them cut, holes drilled and tapped quickly. 

We have three main pieces we are looking to get parts made for:

  • Two frames made of T-slot extrusions (8020) - Material: 6063 Al.

  • Base plate - Material: Stainless Steel 316L.
Attached are drawings for these. We just need the machining for the extrusions. The T-slot extrusions with the detailed cut-lengths, holes, and taps are also attached.  Regarding the base plate, we're looking for a square hole to be cut out in the middle and two lips folded up on the edges. 


For anyone interested, we’d welcome quotes and timelines. 

Thanks!
Best

I'm posting my original email here since the email threads got messed up and there is a ton of great ideas and good discussion happening. Hopefully everyone can continue the dialogue here! Generally useful information being shared, good to have for posterity 

##########

Howdy Ye Clever Folk - 

Got a question I think this group would be well poised to answer. What is harder to cut through?

A) braided encased wire a la kryptonite (like this, near top of photo) 
B) or big chain link 

[Image: 0?ui=2&ik=3ceb5775ae&attid=0.1&permmsgid..._krcfmigt0]

I'm trying to secure my bikes outside on my porch. The porch is fairly removed from the street. I had two bikes locked together all winter, not anchored to anything, and it was fine. Lately there have been some bike thefts but to my knowledge all stolen bikes were unlocked entirely. 

Anywho just curious what is the harder to cut through, a vs b above. 

Thanks! 
Spencer

  THE LAST CRUFT SWAP 7/26 - 8/1
Posted by: Chris Duval - 07-20-2021, 02:47 PM - Forum: Cruft For Free and Stuff For Sale - No Replies

Presenting: The Last Cruft Swap at 10 Tyler Street!

Dates: July 26 @10:00 AM - August 1 at 5:00PM
We’re all moving on to new places, and we all have a lot of cruft we’d like to pass on or dispose of Smile  We’re going to set up the social area into a 7-day cruft area. Anything placed in this area will be cruft. Anything left in this area after August 1st  will be tossed into the dumpster.


Previous cruft swaps included laptops, scooter wheels and bearings, high voltage AC servos and controllers, large LED matrix displays, hand tools, roombas, bicycles, light fixtures, a desktop lathe/mill, a key copier, LCD monitors, toolboxes, lasers, wicker mannequin busts, musical instruments, fabrics, spray paint, puzzles, chain, sheets of material, wire, PDAs, furniture, footballs, and so much more.


 We’ll be placing out large tables and marking areas where you can place larger items. There will be a dumpster parked at the loading dock for non-cruftable items as well.


If you have questions about if something can be crufted or general questions, please reach out to Jason, Andrew, or Mike.


AA is helping make this Cruft Swap happen, let's make sure, we can keep doing this at the new home!


Rules are below.


Location(s):
Social Area for cruft items
Studio space 108 for unwanted wood
Studio space 101 for E-waste/ fluorescent bulbs
Loading dock for Dumpster access for trash


The Rules

  • The moment you take ownership of cruft, it is now fully your responsibility. That means if you take that 70lb mechanical calculator from someone, and they leave conscience free, then it's your object to give away/trash.
  • AA has the discretion to dumpsterize, return or reject items at any time. Members are encouraged to scrutinize cruft candidates to make sure they may have value, and use the dumpster if they don't
  • The Dumpster is a one way trip. No one is to climb in and root around, for safety's sake.
  • Cruft takers MUST store items in their studios, pallets, shelves or outside the Asylum. No items taken as cruft may be stored in hallways or common areas, no exceptions.
  • Cruft donations must come only from within the Asylum - no outside contributions from members, no outside contributors.
  • Large items can be taken if they can be dumpsterized (see restrictions) or picked up by our metal recycler.


Restricted Items

  Batteries:
  • Batteries will not be accepted as cruft. 

  • Batteries cannot be disposed of in the Dumpster. 

  • You can recycle batteries at most hardware stores and specialty battery stores (Ex, Batteries and Bulbs)
  Chemicals
  • Chemicals will be accepted as cruft  ONLY IF if the crufter provides name and contact info. These items will be returned to the crufter for proper disposal if not taken by August 1 at 5:00

  • With the easing of COVID restrictions, towns offer free hazardous waste pickup days. Consult the rules for your town to dispose of unwanted chemicals
  E-Waste
  • The following items will be accepted as E-Waste  ONLY IF if the crufter provides name and contact info, and pays the disposal fee listed. Fees can be paid by venmo to @ArtisansAsylum. Enter “Ewaste” under “What’s it for?”

  • TVs of any size: $25 each

  • CRT equipment $20 each

  School project help needed
Posted by: walkinglumo@gmail.com - 07-13-2021, 02:49 AM - Forum: Have it Made - Replies (1)

Good day

I hope you're well.
My name is Val, 

I am currently a college student looking for some help with a project i messed up quite badly on. 

I wanted to design a stool I thought could connect with screws but order the wrong steel which is non-refundable, and now I need to weld together a few 1/2" x 1/2" steel tubes (24" long each) to create 48" ling tubes but i don't have any welding experience. This mistake was largely due to me being an international student with slight confusion about the imperial system. I would really appreciate any help or guidance possible

Heart Heart Heart
Best
Val
