What a Night!

dog togWell we set out to make our Grand Opening Bash on Saturday our best party ever. It didn’t disappoint. The turnout was amazing.  Thanks to everyone for coming. We hope that you got a tour of the space and a chance to see some of the things and projects we get up to. We even had a 4-legged visitor checking out our new common room and space.

Our new kitchen was a hive of activity. Thanks to everyone who brought in food and helped with the catering. We had so many visitors that we ran out of Pizza dough by 9PM. That never happens. Our very own Dr Tri came to the rescue with her secret quick dough recipe (patent and patents pending :-) ). In the end, we think that everyone was fed and watered. Our TOG beer and wine went down a treat. Some snaps are on our gallery.

We’ll be working away on the construction of our new rooms and sorting our stuff over the next few weeks. Be sure to stay in touch with us on our various social media, web and email outlets. If you like us so much that you want to join up as a member, sign up the form here and we’ll be in touch. Hope to see you again soon.

Group Project: Making Toolboxes

20160121_232528Last Monday, NegativeK got the funny idea that he wanted to do a project to practice his sheetmetal work.  20ga mild steel sheet was ordered, and we collected in cold metals to make some very expensive tool trays.


Making a project like this, is a bit of a puzzle.  Before we get to the tough stuff, we first do layout.  20160121_213737 Here’s Toba wishing we had a printer that would do the layout for him.

Once we all finished drawing lines all over our sheetmetal we had to come up with how we were going to make all the cuts.
20160121_201027That’s an 8″ shear.  It makes cutting sheemetal a magical experience.  It’s quiet, smooth, and pretty easy to control.  The only thing to remember, is it’s like working with the tip of a pair of scissors.  It cuts a long way in front of where you “see” it cutting, and if you reach the end of the cut, it makes a punch mark.  Just… it’s steel instead of paper.

That does mean making inside cuts is a bit of a challenge.  We all had unique approaches to dealing with the inside corners.  Now that we have three and a half toolboxes, I think that the “best” method, would have been drilling holes at each inside corner.  Instead, I twisted and wiggled out the metal, and used a file to clean up the corner.
20160121_213731Here’s my tool tray blank.  All of the fold lines are marked, and it’s sitting on top of my tool tray handle.  I didn’t get good shots of how we did the handles.  They were definitely easier than the body of the tool tray.  To go from that flat sheet of metal, to a three dimensional tool tray, requires a sheet metal brake.

20160121_221810Here’s Toba setting up to do his bends.  NegativeK found that our brake won’t do seams well.  As if that would stop us.  We all ended up using a hammer to finish those folds.

Those folds were simple in description, but not so simple in practice.  None of ours look machine made.  But they do hide the sharp edges, and make the tool trays safe to use.

20160121_231527The handles, and sides were affixed to each other with the space’s spot welder.

Spot welding is a very quick method for joining metal.  I’m glad we’ve got that tool in the space.  I had suggested that we might rivet the parts together, but between drilling and attempting to rivet, we’d have spent two or three times longer affixing the parts together.

The welds also have the air of “professionally made.”  Or at least “not in a garage” made.

20160121_232535At the end of the night, Here’s what we had.  TachoKnight, Toba, NegativeK, and My boxes.
20160121_232418In the future, we won’t put the short guy furthest from the camera.

Grand Opening Party

balloonsCome along on Saturday 30th January at 7PM to TOG’s Birthday party, January Open Social and Grand Opening Bash…… all rolled into one. We want to to make it our best party ever.

We moved from our old place in Chancery Lane in November. Now we’re up and running in our new space at 22 Blackpitts. Come in and catch up with us. We’ll give you a tour of our fantastic new space. Our very own brewers are promising TOG beer and other samples for you to try. Weather permitting, you might get to cook your own pizza on TOG’s very own pizza oven. Try your hand at some lock picking, but be warned…. it’s addictive. There’s some great project ideas in the works by some of our members….. making guitars, a dedicated brew room and another Art show to name but a few.

The space stays open until the last member is left……usually the small hours of Sunday morning. The open social is free to attend for members and visitors alike. Our doors will be open from 7pm. Drop in for 10 minutes, or stay the whole night. We have parking available. Bring beer, food, gadgets! Hope to see you there.
