Gadgets & Widgets
The fabrication of gadgets and widgets is one of our most popular services. These items are tough to describe, as they vary greatly. These items typically aid the researcher by providing a bracket, housing, holder or some other item to enhance the performance of their scientific equipment. These range from solar panel stands to floating pump holders, open top chambers to sensor housings.
For some of these smaller "one-of" projects, we can usually find suitable parts and materials in camp. If you anticipate fabrication of anything requiring specialized or larger quantities of material, please contact us prior to your arrival. We can work with you in the planning stage to help determine what your crew needs to bring, versus what we can provide. In fact, contacting us prior to your arrival is a good idea anyway, and helps ensure all possible angles are covered in relation to what your project will require.
With "one-of" projects, we can typically build them for you, either before or after your arrival. If you need multiple quantities of items, such as 12 open top chambers, or 6 solar panel stands, we typically offer assistance with design and planning, and training on required tools to get you and your crew a safe and productive assembly line, then offer assistance and insight as needed while you perform the assembly.
