What Happened at the November Public Meeting
Membership and a Permanent Home
Maui Makers discussed plans for leasing our own space. We have a strong contender in Wailuku, but are exploring alternatives, in case that falls through. With the space comes extra bills, so we are rolling out a paid membership structure. Once the bank account gets linked to Paypal, you can pay by credit card on the website. You can also pay by check at a meeting, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For a limited time, memberships will be discounted. Lorayne Lipps had the honor of being our first paying member. We anticipate being in St Anthony Thursday evenings through December.
Show and Tell
Sevan brought the 3D Printed Air Brush Nozzle he’s been working on:
Shannon Williams has built a an “oxyhydrogen generator”. It uses electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen gas. This converts electricity into a clean burning fuel, and unlike gasoline the only emission released is—water!
