This machine uses a vacuum to form heated sheets of plastic into complex shapes. It can do a lot more than create packaging and protective covers, it can make  detailed molds, armor, masks and tons of other neat things! Come check it out, learn how to use it, and get working on your project!

SawStop Table Saw

This is a regular table saw but with a very special feature! It has a patented automatic braking system that drops (stops) the saw blade within milliseconds of the blade coming in contact with the operator’s finger, body part or anything with electrical conductivity (say, a hot dog for example). Got project ideas but are afraid of fast spinning blades? Well you can ease your fears knowing that this stop saw has got your back! Get trained and get started!
