"In the year 09NB the Sparkle Forge was aligned to the dimension of the flesh forms and from the remains of the luminous heavens they would produce... many trinkets." - apocryphal Noisebridge repository commit comment

In General

The Sparkle Forge is Noisebridge's new workshop area. It is designed to be a cleaner workshop without sawdust, paints, and solvents. 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.

Laser Cutter

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.

Metal work

For Metal work videos Kevin Caron is a good choice.


We have a Lincoln Electric PRO-MIG 180 WELDER Model: K2481-1

We have some safety gear on hand for one person for Flux-Core welding.

Here is the product:

Here is the user manual:

For How To welding videos ChuckE2009 has a good assortment of beginner videos for different types of welding.
