New Leather Sewing Machine

Do you want to put together a pack, build a dog harness, add some straps to your armor, or just sew something really heavy duty?

With YuKonstruct’s new Tippmann Boss Hand Stitcher you can!

From the manufacturer……

“Sew through Leather, up to 3/4 Thick. This machine will also sew nylon, canvas, urethane, plastic, sheepskin, etc. No need to worry about cords, outlets or mechanical hook-ups because this machine is designed to be completely self sufficient. A Simple pull of the handle is all it takes to start stitching. The Tippmann Boss Leather Sewing Machine completes a precise lock stitch with every pull of the handle.”

New Makerspace Equipment!

We’ve got some exciting new additions at the makerspace thanks in part to funding from CanNor!

In the wood shop there’s two new King Industrial sanders:an oscillating spindle sander and a belt and disc sander.

The sewing room also features two brand new machines: a Janome serger and a Singer industrial sewing machine. A serger, also known as an overlock machine, is a tool that allows you to quickly finish edges on your sewing projects and the second industrial sewing machine promises to be easier to maintain and use than our existing vintage machine.

In the digital fabrication room, between the laser cutters, you’ll find the newly installed Pocket NC 5-axis CNC mill. This machine is part of YuKonstruct’s Instructables Makerspace Contest winnings.

While not exactly equipment, you’ll likely notice that seating in the computer lab is much more comfortable these days with the bonus addition of new-to-us office chairs for all the computer stations.
