Update May Week 2

This week was pizza night, but we were pretty distracted by all the action.

DSC_1516First off, DanW very kindly got stuck in with his PAT testing kit. First for the chop was my donated angle grinder, which was great because I actually needed to use it.

Thanks to DanW and his handy PAT checker and some sticky labels we’re now a little bit safer.


Paul, Si and Tom were all getting stuck in to getting Sarah’s 3D printer up and running, which isn’t far off now. Just a case of connecting the hot end and reconfiguring the firmware and we’re ready to go…

What would you print? Let us know in the comments!


Ben and Finn were getting stuck in with their robot project. It looks complicated! I’m glad they know what they are doing! 🙂

Let’s just hope the three laws of robotics are applied!

Keep an eye out here as I’ll be posting it’s progress here.


This looks technical. There’s a multimeter involved and everything.

Turns out it was a software issue. I think they needed to reverse the polarities.

Everyone knows you always reverse the polarities


Thanks for fixing my angle grinder Dan.

This plug dates back to before british standards were actually a thing.

Life saver, possibly literally.


This angle grinder can now go into the log for approval as it passed the PAT check after the plug was swapped for a good one.

Dan managed to do about 30 items before running out of sticky labels.

I’d say it was a thankless job, only I do remember thanking him many times, but another one won’t go amiss, so thanks Dan!


Charlotte was practicing her cup song, she even wrote a little tutorial for it.

Maybe we’ll have a few more tutorials heading our way soon…

Sorry guys, no videos this week, maybe next.

Speaking of next week…

Will we get Sarah’s 3D printer actually printing? Will we get the Raspberry Pi connected to our 3D printer with a screen? Will more people turn up with interesting gadgets? Will there be videos!?

Find out in next weeks post!

PS. Sorry for no pizza photos, we scoffed it all down before I had thought to take any.
