"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 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

  • Welding clamping and work piece holding tools
  • Welding safety gear
  • Sheet metal shear/break with can work with moderately thick and large sheet metal
  • Horizontal band saw for cutting steel sections
  • Welding Tables

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

(our current set of tools will be added soon)
