    Attention to the DIYode Makers Club, Guelph

    Dear fellow Diyodeheads

    This winter I have been helping with the flooding of the ice at Sunny Acres Park. I have discovered a problem with how the ice crew packs up the hoses at the end of the evening and I think this is a problem that DIYode could solve. After the ice has been flooded, the ice crew will drag each section of hose over the fence at the north end of the rink before coiling them into a storage locker. Lately the crew has gotten into the habit of using the lower limb of the large pine next to the bar-b-q. I am concerned that over time this will kill the tree’s limb. I have been asking the crew not to use the tree limb but people complain that using the fence is too difficult. This is true, it is easier to stand on a picnic table and toss the hose end over the limb. Yet the whole procedure, whether one uses the fence or the tree, is awkward and time consuming. I challenge the DIYode makers club to come up with a solution to this problem.
    The fix could be quite simple. Some kind of improvised bearing or pulley that would mount onto the fence over the locker would improve things immensely. It could also make the coiling of the hoses easier as well. Please feel free to contact me regarding this matter.

    Hi Diyodes! I’ve taken the liberty of adding your events to the Watcamp calendar:

    Do your events have scheduled times, like the Friday Night Five Dollar Fixit or the Saturday workshops? Right now they look like all-day events on the Watcamp calendar.


  3. The email addresses don’t seem to be working?

  4. Simon Clark says:

    Fixed. Thanks David.

    Missed the Electronics Workshop.

    I have an 8 year old who is bugging daddy to teach him to solder and wants to try and build a robot. I’m just looking you up and see that we missed the electronics workshop.

    Could you contact me when you have another electronics workshop planned?

    I’m going to e-mail your info to our school science teachers, in case they didn’t know about you guys. I’d love for them to pass info on these opportunities on to interested kids.


  6. Monica Chamberlain says:

    $5 Fix-it Fridays?

    Do we have to be members to bring things to Fix-it Friday?

    Can my 8.5 year old help (with me there to help supervise of course)? And if so, do we have to pay the $25 month membership fee for him?


  7. Simon Clark says:

    Nope, fixit fridays are open to anyone. Also, the membership means you can bring family with you.

  8. Lynette Segal says:

    Hello Simon,

    Wondering if a Tinkering summer camp might be in the cards for the future? Our son Eden would be thrilled to both partake as a, well, 12 year old kid, and also mentor other children about basic arduino, electronics, soldering… basic hacking and tinkering. How can I help make this happen?


  9. Simon Clark says:

    Lynette, we’d love to do something like that, but would probably need to partner with another camp for it to be feasible. (or lee quit our day jobs). If you want to talk possibilities, come by on a Monday around 8pm, bring Eden if you can, and we can bash some ideas around.

  10. Cindy Hartwell says:


    Such a great opportunity your group has created for people. Congrats.
    My question is: Do I have to become a Monthly Member to be able to participate in any of your events?
    In particular your ‘Fix-it Fridays’.

    Also, what time on Fridays! What’s the cost? What’s the address?

    Hope you find time to reply. I’d like to attend tomorrow (friday June 22nd).

  11. Simon Clark says:

    Nope, all our events are open to anyone. As for FixIt, Mark will be around from 6pm to 8pm tonight. 71B Wyndham St. S.

  12. John Craig says:

    I would appreciate hearing from someone who would be willing to train me on the table saw and the 3 in 1 metal roll, break and shear machine.



  13. Heidi Breier says:

    Hi! Just stumbled on this through the Guelph Arts Platform. Would you guys have a way to replace rivets on a pair of my snowshoes at your next Fix-it Friday? I’d love to come by and visit your workshop.
