Hey foam-pushing volunteers!  Thanks for the help.

Things to know about doing this:
0.) VERY IMPORTANT: close the red plastic curtain and work directly under the large and loud room vent in the Sparkle Forge. Wear a mask (I suggest bringing your own), make sure the vent switch is turned on, and courteously tell others in the room that you will be working with a potentially hazardous substance and they may want to put a mask on themselves.
1.) Start with one of the blocks that have already been cut in half. This is about 10 by 10 by 5 inch give or take.
2.) Keep the pattern pusher straight and parallel to the backboard, keeping your right hand firmly pushing foam against it at all times.
3.) The slower the better. Even slower than I did in this video!
4.) Check the resulting inverted pattern on the foam block as you push, and make sure it doesn't get too close to the edge.
5.) Switch focus between the pusher alignment, the pusher needlehead weaving the pattern, and the resulting inverted pattern on the foam. You'll get the hang of this flow.
6.) It doesn't have to be perfect, but the more of the pattern you can fit onto the block, the better.
7.) VERY IMPORTANT LAST STEP: Switch off the machine after every single block to let the nichrome wire cool back down. Otherwise, it will snap and need to be replaced.

Last Wednesday at #noisebridgehackerspace #noisebridge #noisebridgesf . 
Powering forward on an old project that will help other projects as well!  I've clocked in a lot of hours hauling the high quality sound foam, helping make the hot knife foam cutter in the background, and slaying these little blocks to eventually mount in the #dorkroom , and maybe other places. 
For reducing #reverb in a small room, #fractalfoam #shape should funnel in and trap a wider variety of #soundwaves than a regular zig-zag shape when mounted to a wall or towel panels. #hackit

Scene from this morning's rest stop, including this door from my past. (Still pretty sure that A is really an O.) #darkroom #dorkroom #men #007a #sign #signs #lettering #gothicA #gothicO #gothicletters #arrow #wayfinding
