Does anybody know somebody we should be looking up in Arizona for mentors? The STEM Center is scheduled to be complete by September. We are more than happy to give tours!


Great opportunity, Fredi! May be worth contacting the FIRST RD for AZ and their Senior Mentor who often handles mentor/team recruitment.

We have already reached out. Thanks Joe! Will work on Senior mentor next! Machines are slowly arriving!


We got our new rotary air compressor, its it only 60DB loud!


“Success Engine” is a very forward and excellent name for any tool.


That looks like a wonderful facility. I am sure that I am not the only one getting a severe case of “shop envy” :wink:

SSPF STEM Center-Mill moved into position for electrical hookup
We used a variation of Archimedes approach to moving things to move the 3000lbs mill
Archimedes said, 'If you give me a lever and a place to stand, I can move the world. … To paraphrase Archimedes, give me a place to stand and a lever strong enough and I can move the world.
We used a floor car jack, blocks of wood and a pallet jack.

…and notice the 1726 alumnus, wearing the 4183 shirt, doing all the work…


Be careful getting that mill down the last few inches. It can find it’s own way down pretty fast if you aren’t careful. A 2 ton shop crane can lift it, barely. You may blow the seals in the ram. Ask me how I know. A Johnson bar is also a nice thing to have for moving heavy stuff around.
