HIVE13 Brew Crew Brewout this Saturday, July 13 from 12:00 noon to 5:00pm

July 11th, 2013 Comments off
This Saturday, July 13th, married members Michael and (recent Bock Fest Moerlein Special Release award-winning brewer) Tiffany Bell-Horwath will host an all-grain brewout at the HIVE! Plans include brewing a 10 gallon batch of a brown ale (a clone of the beer moosedrool if anyone has had it).
You are invited to join the Brew Crew at HIVE13 to learn and share brewing skills.  The event will get started around noon, and it will likely go till around 5:00pm.  Feel free to stop in at any point.
Active brewers are encouraged to bring some homebrew for folks to sample and enjoy.  So far, this will include a  bourbon barrel aged vanilla been Russian imperial stout and a cream ale.  With some interest, a root beer could be made and available on tap as well.  At some point we may all chip-in to order a pizza or something of that nature.  Bonus points will be awarded to those who bring some pot-luck munchies to share.
All who are interested in brewing are welcome.  Consider to bring your setup and equipment for the show-and-tell.  Bring your dreams and schemes and make plans to implement the makers’ beer garden show-and-tell at the upcoming Cincinnati mini-maker faire to be in Washington Park on October 19.
We are looking forward to this brewday and hope to see you there!  (Find Us)

HIVE13 has procured a brand-new MIG welder

July 10th, 2013 Comments off

It’s like Christmas in July!  The HIVE’s new MIG welder has arrived.  DaveB trucked it over and set it up on the cart just today.

HIVE13 is the proud owner of  a brand-new Millermatic 211 Auto-Set w/MVP (link) with the M-100 Gun (link).

This is serious equipment.  Electric shock can kill.  Hot parts can burn.  Fumes and gases can be hazardous.  Arc rays can burn eyes and skin.  Welding can cause fire or explosion.  Flying metal or dirt can injure eyes.  Build-up of gas can injure or kill.  Electric and magnetic fields (EMF) can affect implanted medical devices.  Noise can damage hearing.  Cylinders can explode if damaged, etc.   Only qualified persons should install, operate, maintain, and repair this unit.

Does this new tool sound like as much fun to you as it does to us?

Stay tuned and drop by to see developments progress as the experienced HIVE welders and prudently cautious implementers make preparations to enable eager newbies to learn to weld safely with appropriate precautions.

HIVE13 is the place to join to learn new skills and use new equipment to make things.

Tuesday May 14, 2013 at Hive13 – DIY CSI Forensics

April 28th, 2013 Comments off

Join us at Hive13 this Tuesday, May 14, at the 7:30 pm meeting for an informative look into Do-It-Yourself Crime-Scene-Investigation Forensics.

Member Brian Cochran (who is a Detective in the Boone County Sheriff’s Department assigned to crime scene investigation) will use material from the 40-hour course he teaches at the University of Tennessee’s National Forensic Academy.  Brian will perform live demonstrations of some of the coolest latent print development techniques; making finger prints appear on paper,  making them glow, and fun stuff like that.  The presentation will include a brief overview with slides showing real CSI jobs and case studies.  The case studies focus on the processes that are used and where the “maker” attitude was applied to bring the case to a successful conclusion.  The two case studies that will be presented are homicides.  Real crime scene photography and a limited number of postmortem examination photos will be shown.  It will not be anything different from what you would see on an episode of CSI or Dexter but these ARE real.  Both of these case study presentations have been shown to high school groups before, but this is an UP FRONT WARNING for those inclined to be squeamish.

Members, guests, first-time-walk-ins, and those interested in law enforcement and criminal investigations are welcome to come to hear this presentation.  Come to learn about this different kind of  (“making” the case) skill.  (Find Us)

Bitcoin Lazer Payments

June 14th, 2012 Comments off

Do to yet another members recent issue with paypal we have enabled bitcoin payments.  Now once you login to lazer.hive13.org you have an option to pay through Mt. Gox with bitcoin.  This works similar to the paypal button but the prices are dynamically set to equal the $30/hr charge we use for paypal.  After a payment it may take a while for the laser minutes to show up, at least until we can have the callbacks fully tested.

With paypal locking accounts and Dwolla’s new crazy terms of service, we would love to offer bitcoin for membership subscriptions as well but unfortunately I don’t believe there is any good way to do this without paying an escrow upfront.  Until then we will use the laser site as our first official testbed.
