Alright! We’ve covered The Pallets, The Library and The Woodshop, so here’s The Shop.
It’s a lot more empty since the reorganization, but there’s still a lot going on. Over on the left you’ll see that it’s Safety First! with goggles, masks, gloves, hearing protection, and even the first aid kit. Past that are a variety of hand tools, the pinball machine, the BADASS, and then the bandsaw, and drill presses, and the mill, and the laser cutter, and a chair, and some secret project that isn’t done yet and…
There’s a lot more, but you should probably see it yourself, in person, with your own eyes… and luckily, you can! We have our weekly meeting every Tuesday night at 7pm, and our “Builder’s Night Out” every Thursday night at 7pm. Come on down either of these nights to get a tour, meet the members, and find out if you’d like to join us.
We hope to see you at Milwaukee Makerspace soon, making something awesome!
We’ve already seen the Library, so here’s a shot of the Woodshop.
On the left you’ll see Ron and Brant working on the CNC Router, and in the middle you might notice the “Old Milwaukee Makerspace” graphic from last year’s Beer Can Parade Float and the giant Arduinos from our other parade float.
Oh yeah! There’s also a lot of woodworking equipment! Someone said “Hey, those seem to be really close to each other!” and we said “No worries! They’re all on wheels!” So what you see here are the various pieces of woodworking equipment in their resting state. When it use, they will probably be a lot more haphazardly arranged in the space.
If you’ve seen this area of the Makerspace before, you’ll know this is a big improvement. The next step should include building a number of workbenches so we have some solid spots to work on things. We were just using tables, but we’re a makerspace… we can do better!
