Regina maker space, Crash Bang Labs celebrates it’s first Annual General Meeting with commemorative laser-cut tokens.
I highjacked Bill Wales original idea of a black acrylic coin, and suggested pushing the frivolous envelope with a toonie-ish design.
Our finished project is a token made with a laser cut 3mm thick black acrylic outer ring with “Crash Bang Labs Annual General Meeting” engraved on both sides. The 3mm thick baltic-birch plywood insert has “1st” on one side & the CBL logo on the reverse.
It was a labor-intensive endeavor to produce 40 tokens, Bill & I spent over four hours creating these gems. The next batch will go much quicker as we also created jigs to help align the engraving of the tail-side of the parts. About half of the time was spent on design and rest on actually cutting and engraving the tokens.
The AGM takes place today at 2 PM, at 2431 8th Ave (East side of The Exchange, North-most door). Everyone is welcome to attend. Immediately following the meeting we’ll move the festivities over to The Exchange for fizzy pops and grub.
The Frivolous Engineering Company Inc. is proud to announce that our flagship product: The Ultimate Useless Kit is now available at Maker Shed. This is a huge achievement for us, something we’ve been working towards for almost a year.
Maker Shed is the brick-and-mortar & on-line store for Make Magazine, one of the best sources for Do-It-Yourself information there is:
Because Frivolous Engineering is located in Canada, orders going to the States are usually charged additional customs and duties. So if you live in the United States you’ll save time and money by ordering from the Maker Shed!
Currently, the Shed is only stocking the black version of the kit. If you would like the clear case version, or a Parts Only Kit, or our Fully Soldered Machine you will still have to order directly from us.
The Frivolous Engineering Company Inc. will be attending Maker Faire NYC this weekend so we won’t be shipping any orders until we get back.
All orders placed between Tuesday, September 25th through Monday, October 1st will not be shipped out until Tuesday, October 2nd. You are welcome to place an order during this time. All orders will be shipped out in the order they were received. Any orders we receive today (Monday, September 24th) will be shipped out without delay, and the cut-off time is midnight, tonight.
We hope that everyone attending Maker Faire will stop by and say hello. Our table will be located inside the Maker Shed.
