Maker Saturday Webcasts – Tools for Making Things with Jim Newton – 7/21/2007 1:00 PM PDT –
Ever had an idea for something you’d like to make–but you had no idea what tools you might need for the task? While demonstrating how to build an electromechanical digital clock, Jim Newton will talk about different kinds of tools–low-tech, such as a drill press or a welder, and others more high-tech, such as laser and plasma cutters. Jim will also talk about TechShop, a community-based machine shop based in Menlo Park, California.
Jim is a lifetime maker, veteran BattleBots builder, and former MythBuster. In 2006, he co-founded TechShop with the goal of giving anyone interested in technology access to the necessary tools and a creative environment for creating individual projects.
