Ben (Myers Woodshop) and Coty (Arganic Woodwork), two makers from central Arkansas, discuss their recent trip to Workbenchcon 2020, the conference for makers and content creators. They guys break it down by price, food, hotel, sponsorship's, vendors, classes, and meet ups. Ben gives his thoughts as a content creator and Coty as a full time production shop. Should you attend Workbenchcon next year? Listen as the guys discuss their thoughts and find out if you'll see them next year or not. After, we talk to Brian (Fiery Squirrel Art) about his thoughts on if he missed out or he goes in the future.
Also, Ben's wife Molly pulls an epic prank on him during the trip and also starts a book blog at https://www.leggingsandliterature.com/
Ortur 15 watt Laser Master. While this is listed as a 15 watt, that is the total power. The laser actually functions at a 4.5ish watt power, similar to my J Tech 4.2 Watt Laser. This laser is perfect for a beginner and expert. It's open frame allows it to be used almost anywhere! Ortur Laser Master is a portable laser engraving machine, which is easy to install and safe to operate. It has a built-in G-sensor. When the machine tilts, it will automatically stop laser work and protect against laser damage. Support for GRBL open source software for operating fun. It supports dynamic control laser module, and PWM power regulation, low brightness regulation.
It's the first episode of the new year! The guys finally catch up after a nearly 3 month hiatus. They visit with Allen Horn. Allen is a pest control technician (he works with Ben) and a handy man. While Allen isn't full time or part time, he does several jobs throughout the year. From Decks to Fences to a fake baby grand piano, he does it all. He's learned from YouTube and HGTV. Yes, you really can learn from TV.
