FabLab first

By | May 2, 2014

After some cautious first steps my first laser cut parts have been made. The case for the clubs upcoming WSPR kit build prototype has been, well, lasered.

There’s a couple of minor points to address but for a first effort I’m pretty pleased.

The idea was to cut for a single sheet a ‘desktop’ case for the U3 WSPR transmitter that could display a callsign or something similar on the front as a customisation as well as being simple and space efficient. Yep, you can buy a case but its quite nice to be able to make one in Cumbria rather than China. I should be able to get 4 and a half of them out of a single 300mmx600mm sheet.

All I have to do now is fix the faults and make it right next time.
