Next week I'll be moving to Omaha and starting a new job as a Maker Corps Mentor for the Omaha Children's Museum! Here is some basic information about what that all means: http://jason-webb.info/2014/05/joining-the-omaha-childrens-museum-as-a-maker-corps-mentor/

Went to the Denver Mini Maker Faire today. Lots of great stuff, and amazing people. Here is a small selection of the cool stuff I saw. #makerfaire    #DenMakerFaire

+James Harr had a bunch of keys to dispose of, so we thought we'd see if it would be reasonable to cast something out of them. At the +Omaha Maker Group I used our 3D printer to make some ABS Teddy Roosevelt busts (thanks Thingiverse!) to use for plaster investment casting (going to try melting out the ABS with  acetone before casting), and last night we threw the keys into a makeshift furnace and cast a tiny ingot with them. It worked out well enough that I think we can go ahead and scale up. We'll probably cast the keys to ingots just to clean it up (it makes a fair amount of slag, we suppose from the oxidation on the surface of the keys), and then we'll try casting some Teddy Roosevelt busts.

This looks very interesting.  Have you ever considered getting a table at Nuke-Con to show off your projects?  If I'm impressed by this, I'm sure others will be.  I'm not a maker myself, but I can appreciate the talents of others. 

Are you all in any way related to the R2-Builders?  You remind me of a friend of mine.

"Quick swap" front wheels with disk brakes. Can't really see them well, but the disks were made with an angle grinder out of a sheet of steel. Despite what you might think, they work really well.

We got the Omaha Maker Group PowerWheels electric race car running on the new battery pack last night. It's running pretty well, we're looking forward to lots of tweaking and tuning before the race.

Today I went to the +Omaha Maker Group to melt down a big lot of brass keys into ingots. The ingots will be melted down again to cast some Teddy Roosevelt busts that I 3D printed.
