Meeting of the Mad Scientists Union, West Hartford CT

Postby Pixel » Mon May 05, 2008 12:51 pm UTC

Saturday May 10th I will be hosting a monthly "Meetings Of the Mad Scientists Union" At my place in West Hartford. I'll opening my garage and encouraging everyone to come work on whatever projects they have, help others there with their project, or just hang out and BS with the other Mad Scientists.

What's going to happen? Well one person is hoping to bring his blacksmithing rig. I'll either be working on my '62 Comet, or my xB. Leaf will probably be continuing to restore her antique bicycles. And another friend is goign to be working on getting his BMW bike back on the road. Anything and everyone is welcome.

I've got a compressor, small drill press, a variety of mechanics hand tools, some carpentry power tools, etc. that people are welcome to use.

The usual meeting interval is the 1st Saturday of the month for as long as the weather is warm enough. It was shifted this month due to a schedule conflict.

What is the Mad Scientists union?

The concept for the Mad Scientists Union is to encourage people to "Do Things With Stuff", and get others to help them. Basically it is a place to talk about or work on whatever it is you want to work on. And have other people there to lend a hand, bounce ideas off or just come up with the next bad idea. Cars, motorcycles, bicycles, woodworking, electronics, trebuchets, sculpture, or anything else that you're into is welcome.

You are welcome to join where ever you live and whatever you are into. If you want to host your own "meetings" you are also welcome. The only requirements to join are that you're generous with your knowledge and skills, and welcoming of others no matter their interests or skill levels. Remember, there was a time you were new at things, and there are still things you know nothing about.

Good, if a tad bit quiet. There were three of us this month, as even with the rescheduling there was still a lot of schedule conflicts. But we got Leaf's Nottingham bike back up and running, I worked on the exhaust for my Comet, and a friends parts bike is in the garage ready to get stripped down.

Next one is currently planned for June 14th, as I'll be away on the 7th so I won't be there to open the garage.
