Cool Links Wednesday: Tumblr Edition

This may be our second ever post for Cool Link Wednesday, but that won’t stop us from having a special theme edition! This week we opened up our very own Solarbotics Tumblr account, where we’ll be posting some behind-the-scenes stuff with an R’n’D flavour. What kind of stuff, exactly? Today we had the second session of a machining workshop, where our resident expert handyman, Reg, showed us how to grind our own lathe toolings out of steel, and basic operations of putting it to work in the lathe itself. We’ve also covered some kit modifications and prototypes/tests, and will continue to keep some new content coming out fairly regularly.

What else? More Tumblr! Here are some of the other accounts that have been keeping us occupied for the last little while:
