Howdy guys, you may have seen a couple of my projects in these pages but today I want to talk about my latest one. I am volunteering to go to a local Care facility to talk with a group of residents about building a model of some kind. I was asked to do this by a person close to the care facility who despaired of the few things to do for older men.
I propose to offer them something from the Make CNC extensive list of projects. The problem is that the men are not allowed to use sharp tools like knives etc, so I have to come up with something where the cutting is already done. Obviously a laser cut project would be excellent. Commercial products although outstanding often involve complex assembly, small parts and are expensive. These blokes don’t have a lot of money although I believe the care facility will try to come up with a way to cover material costs.
I have a laser but cutting parts for ten projects will be very time hungry so I’m here today to ask if any of you people would be interesting in taking one of these old fellows under your wing and cutting out some parts for him.
I expect to build whatever they choose over several weeks, once a week for an hour or so. That means the parts don’t have to be all cut at once. The parts could then be mailed to the men, a nice surprise for them, as they are cut.
I would stay in touch with any person who is willing to help and orchestrate parts required etc.
Please post any interest here.
