    Been Over a Year!!!!

    Just looking at some dates on the board and this Thread has been stagnet for over a year!!!

    What do ya all say about doing a work shop ????

    Lets get some input .

    Lets post up some ideas. Once we get ideas and pin it down to a specific item, I will head up the workshop, I will provide the space (if enough are interested, maybe I can swindle OBD into opening their back door)

    We should probably set it up for mid to late Jan. So the holidays are behind us. This will also give some time to get the word out.

    OK Lets see some of your thoughts.

    dont know if this has been done, but I would like (from acrylic):

    1. probe holders
    2. lookdown box (possible deep enough to take pics from top)

    Adding to this, maybe an Acrylic Work 101. Simple projects like probe hoilders, lookdown box, frag rack, Sock holders, fish trap, (Hey Dave I still have your fish trap) maybe a simple reactor.. If we got people to commit we could order a 5 gallon bucket of Weld On 3 and a bunch of squeeze bottles with needles and everyone who registered for the workshop would get a bottle of solvent to take home and play with. You could show how to make a basic scraper for cleaning up edges of acrylic after cutting, I can bring my Band Saw, it would be fun and educational.

    Glass, water, and fish..
    all else is extraneous

    Acrylic accessories sounds great!

    I'd be happy to bring something 'warm', as long as participants are over 21! Then again, maybe save that for afterwards!

    Are you talking about hands on or a tutorial here in the diy forums?

    What about plumbing an overflow, different types and how each one works

    Now that is getting much better!!

    Choices, we all like choices. And I may add some damn good ones.

    Lorie, I think we can do both. We can choose a hands on (everyone builds one) We can also do an in-depth presentation of a topic, such as the overflow styles.

    Keep the ideas coming

    The more we have to choose from the better chance we have of getting some items that people will actually show up to make and learn about.

    Thanks for the responses to date. All suggestions are noted.

    We may have a winner here folks.
    Doing some research as you read.

    Need someone to come up with a DSLR lens so we can make a couple of protos.
    Want to keep the price down as low as possible.
