Tool Training: CNC Plasma Cutter APRIL Second Session

Description:

Learn how to use a computer-controlled, water-cooled plasma cutter to cut any shape you want out of a 4'x8' sheet of metal! In this class, we'll show you how to translate your hand sketches and CAD drawings into patterns cut out of any metal sheet up to an inch thick, at rates of up to 200 inches per minute.

This class will introduce you to the new Torchmate CNC plasma cutter at Artisan's Asylum. Students will learn how to use the custom Torchmate CAD and CAM software to generate files and toolpaths, learn how to use all of the supporting equipment and infrastructure surrounding the machine, and learn how to perform basic maintenance tasks on the plasma torch.

Students will be introduced to the tool scheduling system during the class, which they will use to schedule a 30-minute private testing session to demonstrate competent usage of the machine. After successful demonstration of competency students will be free to use the plasma cutter independently as members.

Class Goals:

After taking both the training and testing sessions, students will be able to operate the Torchmate CNC plasma cutter independently as members at Artisan's Asylum.

Prerequisites:

No experience required, though previous experience with CNC machines and generating DXF files will help significantly.

Materials Provided:

The Asylum will provide practice steel sheets and necessary safety equipment for those students who need. The cost of materials is included in the registration fee.

What to Bring:

Bring personal welding helmets if you have them, though having one is not required. Students should wear non-flammable materials, i.e. non-synthetics: cotton, flannel, and leather are ideal.

Instructor Biography:

Artisan's Asylum Facilities Manager Rob Masek is an engineer, technician, and educator with a passion for fighting robots and clean aisles. He owns and operates Black Swan Robotics, LLC, and teaches several types of fabrication and digital design. Rob also competed on Comedy Central's BattleBots three times, and has produced and run several robotics competitions (including several US FIRST Robotics competitions and a home-brewed robot combat event called Pound of Pain).


Event Time:

Sunday, April 19, 11am-1pm

Testing to be scheduled with the instructor on the day of class.

REFUNDS:We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, pleasefill out this form.

CANCELLATIONS:Your class may be cancelled if too few people register. A decision will be made a few days before the class is scheduled to run, and you will be notified of the cancellation and your registration refunded in full.

Bicycle Maintenance I: MAY

Description:

Learn how to maintain your bicycle! The four classes in this course will cover the following topics: changing a flat tire, introduction to drive systems and rear derailleurs, brake systems overhaul, and introduction to bearings systems and front hub overhaul. Students will be performing the maintenance themselves, on their own bicycles, after a short instruction and demonstration. This is a basic course, and some bicycle types may be outside of the scope of the course. However, the course does reach a level of detail at which students who are intending to expand their knowledge of bicycles find it helpful to do some light note-taking during lecture time.

Class Goals:

Students will come out of this course with the ability to tend to the most common maintenance requirements of their bicycle.

Prerequisites:

Students must be at least 18 years of age -- otherwise, all you need is the desire to learn!

Materials Provided:

All relevant tools and equipment will be provided, as well as lubricants and rags etc.

What to Bring:

Your bike, replacement parts if necessary (check with instructor), and clothes you don't mind getting black bike grease on.

Instructor Biography:

Seven as shes commonly known, has learned her bicycle maintenance skills through a combination of Broadway Bicycle School training, and spending inordinate amounts of time around SCUL headquarters (a positive bicycle chopper gang). Seven maintains a small fleet of normal bicycles, has built and maintained her own modified bicycles, and she likes to read bicycle repair manuals for kicks. Seven enjoys maintenance best when her SCUL comrades get together and ask her two or three how do I questions at once. Shes also keen on hot yoga, meditation, making electronics go, and treasures playtime with friends.

Pared down to a performance with no PA, this presents a rare opportunity to see the electronic duo play in a setting as intimately chilling as their music. Following the release of Violet, follow up EP to their debut Contour Lines, Claire Brentnal and Richard Knox have distilled their dark pop into an altogether different beast - stark, hypnotic, human and spell-binding.

BargainDating's $10 Speed Dating Events in May. Ages 21 - 63.

Welcome to BargainDating, Boston's firstaffordablespeed dating events. We'renow in Porter Sq, at a sushi-shabu restaurant with a bar and a parking garage, right next to the Red Line!

EachBargainDateround will last between three and six minutes, depending on the number of participants.Each overall event will take less than an hour, so be prepared to meet new people in a short time! You'll fill out a form and pass it in at the end of the event. Then you'll receive an email with all your mutual matches within 48 hours!

There will be different time slots and tables for different age ranges. Make sure you get the proper ticket!

Okay, so what are the age ranges? They're as follows:

From 5:00 - 6:00 pm:
(A)Ages 21 - 33
(B)Ages 32 - 45
(C)Ages 43 - 57

From 6:30 - 7:30 pm:
(D)Ages 26 - 39
(E)Ages 37 - 51
(F)Ages 48 - 63

VENUE:

The Akai Ryu Shabu & Sushi Restaurant(http://www.akairyuma.com) is located in the Porter Square Galleria, right next to the Porter Square Red Line station. Behind the venue, there is a small parking garage. The venue has a full bar and will be offering each person half-price appetizers with any drink (alcoholic or soda) purchase.

TICKETS:

Please sign up in advance to get the $10 price. Walk-ins will be allowed as long as the ratio of men to women is right but will pay $20 each per event. Why do walk-ins pay more? Because they make a lot more work for me! So sign up in advance and get the darn-cheap $10 price. Note: no more "buddies."

Lastly, please note that tickets stop selling at 2:30 pm on the day of the events. If you don't get a ticket online, you can try your luck as a walk-in...

REFUNDS:

The official policy is no refunds, unless an event gets cancelled. But you can always ask...

GUARANTEE:
I would love to guarantee that you'll meet a minimum number of people, and I do my best to keep the numbers balanced, but at the end of the day, it's really tough. I can only guarantee that there will be at least four people of each sex registered before an event happens, otherwise it will get cancelled before event day. But there are things outside my controI, like no-shows and people who sign up as the wrong sex or for the wrong age event and then want to change once they've arrived. And did I mention no-shows? :)

WHY REGISTER IN ADVANCE:
When you register in advance, you pay less and you are much more likely to connect with your mutual matches. When you register online, all your contact info (name, email, cell) is in the system and ready to be used to match you up. When you show up as a walk-in, you have to hand-write all your info, and if I can't read it, I can't match you up.
Also, when you register in advance, you're guaranteed to get in. Once the events sell out, there are no guarantees. It would be a shame to get there only to get turned away. We'll always try to accommodate people who show up, but there are no guarantees of admission.

FAQ:

(1) Do I need to print and bring my ticket on event day?
Nope. There will be a guest list and preprinted dating scorecards for the participants who have preregistered. You won't need your emailed ticket. But you SHOULD bring something to write with!

(2) I RSVP'ed on Meetup. Am I registered for this event?
Nope! Meetup RSVP's mean nothing. You need to get tickets on Eventbrite to be registered.

(3) When should I register for these events?
Sooner is better than later, but definitely don't wait till the last minute. You should absolutely sign up NO LATER THAN TWO DAYS before the events. Why? Because if there aren't enough people registered the day before event day, I'll be cancelling the smaller events. If I cancel after you've signed up, you get refunded. But once I cancel, the event is gone. If you had signed up earlier, the event might have happened. Capisce?

(4) Do you offer refunds?
Nope. The official policy is no refunds, especially on or after event day. But you can always ask...

(5) I only see six people signed up for this event. Are you still going to hold it?
Yes. You are looking at one Meetup group. This event is posted in multiple Meetup groups (usually 20 or so), as well as other external sites. There will be many people there!

(6) I didn't receive my matches within 48 hours like you promised! What should I do???
First, check your SPAM/junk mail folder. If you don't find your matches, send me a message via Meetup or via text message, not via regular email. If you attended, I sent you your matches via regular email. If you didn't get them the first time, then you probably won't get them no matter how many times I resend them via email. So try Meetup messaging, and I'll reply with your matches there.

(7) It's been fifteen minutes since the event ended and I haven't received my matches yet!!! What should I do???
Wait another 47 hours and 45 minutes. Then see the previous question.

(8) How many people are signed up for the XYZ event?
Sorry, but if I answer every person who asks that question, I will waste a lot of time doing so. In general, there tend to be more women than men signed up, but that is not always the case.

(9) Will there be an even number of men and women? I don't want to attend otherwise.
Then you should not attend. :) There's never a perfect balance between men and women. First off, women are much more willing to sign up than men. Then, there are no-shows, and people who sign up for the wrong event. In short, it's impossible to have a perfect balance unless I've got 5 extra men and women for each individual event ready to hop in if needed. Of course, that's where having many volunteers helps a lot.

(10) Why did you do away with the free BUDDY offer?
I had implemented the BUDDY system as a way to keep balance between men and women, but not enough people were using it, and often those that did use it made mistakes while registering which made it even HARDER to keep the balance between men and women. So it's gone. Now, everyone registers himself, and that's it.

(11) If I am attending only one event but decide while I'm there to attend a second, do I have to pay the walk-in rate?
No. If you've already signed up for one event, you're in the system, so you'll just pay the extra $10 for the second event. It's people that aren't preregistered and aren't in the system that pay the walk-in rate.

(12) If I ask a question which you answer in this post, will you answer my email anyway?
Heh heh heh.... Don't hold your breath! If you couldn't take the time to read the FAQ, why should I take the time to reply to your message?

Any other questions? Just ask... after you've read the FAQ, of course!

Mental Health Awareness Month Book Talk with Scott & Sage Stossel (Sponsored by the Walker Trieschman Institute)

Join us a book reading with Scott Stossel, editor of the Atlantic and the author of theNew York TimesbestsellerMy Age of Anxiety: Fear, Hope, Dread, and the Search for Peace of Mind, and Sage Stossel, contributing editor atThe Atlanticand cartoonist for weekly editorial cartoon"Sage, Ink, graphic novelStarling,and the On the Loose series of the children's books. A reading will be followed by a Question & Answer session and light refreshments.


Two years ago, President Obama signed a proclamation declaring May as National Mental Health Awareness Month. In the proclamation, he stated: As a Nation, it is up to all of us to know the signs of mental health issues and lend a hand to those who are struggling. Shame and stigma too often leave people feeling like there is no place to turn. We need to make sure they know that asking for help is not a sign of weakness -- it is a sign of strength.


Standing up against stigma, Scott and Sage have both publicly shared their experiences with anxiety, with Scott even appearing on The Colbert Report to talk about his book, the various phobias that he describes and his current coping method of choice.


More than a few people, some of whom think they know me quite well, have remarked that they are struck that I, who can seem so even-keeled and imperturbable, would choose to write a book about anxiety. I smile gently while churning inside and thinking about what Ive learned is a signature characteristic of the phobic personality: the need and abilityas described in the self-help book Your Phobiato present a relatively placid, untroubled appearance to others, while suffering extreme distress on the inside. ~ Scott Stossel,My Age of Anxiety: Fear, Hope, Dread, and the Search for Peace of Mind.


About 40 million adults in the US have diagnosed anxiety disorders; as Scott points out in his book, that's "nearly one in seven of us." This event, held on May 9th as part of National Mental Health Awareness Month, is in support of those 40 million and millions of others suffering from other mental health issues. Together, we can stand up against stigma, learn a few things about our authors, and undoubtedly share a few laughs maybe even the laughter of recognition.


Scott Stossel andSage Stossel, Belmost-raised and Harvard-educated siblings, both have diagnosed anxiety disorders and have drawn on their creative talents to not just manage their anxiety, but also to share with others their experiences with anxiety the good, the bad, and the hysterically funny.
