mz machanics 600x80 Introducing the Mechanics Skill Set

This month, we’re thrilled to announce our Mechanics Skill Set. Over the course of March, we’ll explore the wonderful world of simple machines, mechanical forces, motors and motion. We’ll have guest authors, including our friend and MAKE contributor Dustyn Roberts, author of Making Things Move, features on the basic tools, materials, and techniques of mechanical engineering that every maker should know, giveaways, relevant Make: Projects, best-of roundups of existing content from the site and the magazine, and lots more. And this month, we’d also like to welcome Craftsman as our Mechanics Skill Set sponsor.

BTW: We hope you enjoyed the February Woodworking Skill Set. We had so much fun with it, we’re extending it by a couple of weeks. We figured February was a short month, so why not?

And, as always, we’d love to hear what you’d like to get out of a month of mechanics education. Please leave your ideas in the comments below.
