I have a large length woodworking (may be plastics/polymers?) lathe, can that be loaned and used for turning and winding >transformers/inductors, etc.?
I am sure that this would be an asset to VHS. Are you proposing to site the lathe on premises as member owned equipment for general >use by the membership?
Yes, similar to the Taig CNC.
(1) Since it is homemade, it can be adapted for Transformer, Inductor and Electromagnetic Interference (EM) choke winding. Benefits are no need to buy inductors and transformers; all we do is stock magnetic cores, bobbins and enamelled copper wire.
(2) The sturdy base is detachable and can be used for mounting variety of CNC and lathe like tool frames.
(3) Making Cotton Candy
(4) Can the new VHS space be equipped with overhead cranes (allowed and expense permitting)?
