Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

Pledge: Compressor

The item

This compressor would be a great addition to the workshop. They are great for a whole range of tasks:

  • Spray painting : note, needs oil filter
  • Pumping up tires
  • Quickly cleaning swarf from tools (wear eye protection)
  • Surprising Tom Scott on his way out of the toilet
  • Attaching tools like shears, wrenches, nailers etc : note, needs oil added to air
  • Cleaning dust from inside electronics (wear eye protection)
  • Cleaning crap from lasercutter cooling tubes
  • Attach a pressure vessel and you have a cannon!

With the built in chamber it can provide a greater, consistent and variable supply of compressed air over a "put put" style of compressor currently found in the space.
