= In General =
 
 
The Sparkle Forge is Noisebridge's new workshop area. It is designed to be a cleaner workshop for plastics and metals; without sawdust, paints, and solvents; although wood and paper sheet goods are cut on the laser cutter. Messy and dusty projects should be worked on in the dirty shop. Due to the Hot Area, storage of flammable items in Sparkle Forge should be avoided. The storing project materials inside the workshop, can limit others access to the tools.
 
 
= Tools Wanted =
 
 
* Gas bottles for MIG welding and 75Ar/25C gas if possible
 
* Welding clamping and work piece holding tools
 
* Welding safety gear
 
* Sheet metal shear/break which can work with moderately thick and large sheet metal
 
* Horizontal band saw for cutting steel sections
 
* Welding Tables
 
* Hand tools: Files, Hammers
 
* an Anvil, these are surprisingly expensive, but people hack together their own anvils as well

We have a [[Laser_Cutter/Kaitian_CM1309]] laser cutter. The [[Laser_Manual]] describes the current informal consensus on how the laser cutter should be used. Please contact a trainer before using it.
