Crowdfund a Rotary Tool for the Epilog!
« on: February 01, 2016, 01:59:17 PM »
Acquiring a rotary tool has come up in discussion a few times since I have been a lab member, most recently by @digitalman2112 on Slack. Epilog has quoted us $800 for the rotary tool, which would enable us to engrave round things such as wine glasses, flashlights, mugs, etc using the laser. I think that is a very achievable goal based on the interest expressed so far.
I'm creating this thread based on @darkmoonsinger's advice so we can formally track donations towards the rotary tool.


Please send whatever amount you would like to contribute to treasurer@familab.org via Paypal (Edit: please put that it's for the rotary tool crowdfunding! -J) and we will keep track of our progress in this thread.




Rotary tool manual: https://www.epiloglaser.com/downloads/pdf/fusion_rotary_attachment.pdf


Total Received So Far: $800 (as of 2/9)
100% there!

Thanks!
Nick Polanosky

I was given the green light to donate the excess $30 from the Simplify3D crowdfunding to the laser, so $30 more.

Sent my $50 over and I'll even donate an old 3D maglight to be our first victim.  I've already pulled down the files from Epilog for it.

Skycraft sells anodized aluminum flashlights for $7, excellent for use with the rotary tool :)

I emailed them and asked nicely - they are quite awesome :)
