Gears of Resistance:

The Bits, Bolts and Volts of Design, Engineering, and Business

Howdy GearHead! Thanks for jacking into the Gears of Resistance — the community for the curious maker! I’m Mike and this is the home of the GearHead Guild; a community of friendly makers, DIYers, engineers, technicians, scientists, craftspeople, coders, artists, cooks, and anyone else who tries to make a living by creating with their minds and hands.  The only rule here is that you treat others with the respect that you would show your grandmother. Some of the topics we love to explore:

  • Maker Movement
  • Digital Fabrication
  • Art+Design
  • Ethical Hacking
  • Open Source Hardware and Software
  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)
  • Citizen Science
  • Digital Citizenship
  • Running Small Creative Businesses
  • Embedded Electronics
  • Traditional Craftsmanship (Woodworking, Metalworking)

Whether you are a weekend warrior DIYer or an aspiring professional maker, we’re sure you’ll find something to enjoy in our eclectic mix of how-to’s, reviews, tips and tricks. Find us on your favorite podcast app and join the discussion on Discord
