Major Update: TechShop Went Bankrupt

Steven Mosbrucker

44 views

  • Techshop went bankrupt yesterday and all locations are now permanently closed
  • Thus i have lost my office location for storage close to my machines
  • Also my access to heavy duty tools is now lost
  • Now i have next to 0 tools available to me
  • That put a major strain on this project. As the only way i was able to economically fabricate the shredder was on techshops redwood city plasma cnc which is now have no access
  • So i am not sure if i will be able to complete the project. i have maybe 4-5 shredders cut however one of the integral pieces were not cut due to needing to be finalized.
  • so i can try to source getting those last few parts cut
  • then my only option to get the project done quickly is to source a cheap place to cut the parts and just take the loss or build my own machine
  • but building my own machine would take forever
  • I will keep you guys posted on the finishing of the parts for my machines.

This sucks beyond belief. I was hoping that actually I could get one of those finally, have been collecting plastic for 2 years. What parts are you missing ? Can I get some of the made parts to try to finish a shredder on my own ?

Thanks,

Looking at new location on monday which should have some equipment to help me with shredder. 

I am missing the front and back plate only as i need to decide what bearings i am going to be using. But all others are cut and ready to go for finishing. i am thinking that i am probably just going to buy a broach for speed of making.
