How are things coming?
We are almost finished installing the Electric. A few parts on order, but hopefully those get here Monday. If all goes well, we should get the last inspection within the next week. We don’t think it will take very long after that to get the electric turned on.
When will you be open?
Once that happens, we will be open for business. Right now we are hoping for 1st week of October, fingers crossed.
What does the space look like?
We have most of the functionality worked out, but want the space to have a welcoming and creative feel, and let our membership make the space their own. We have blank walls, plenty of high ceiling, and tape on the floor marking what goes where. We also have some interesting recycled materials that are up for grabs, but either need to find a use, or ride into the sunset. Come unleash your creativity.
To maximize use of space, we aim to keep things modular. Most heavy tools will be moveable using a pallet jacket. This allows rapid reconfiguration to meet needs.
What toys will you have?
- Small welding/metal forming
- Large woodworking area, and a large supply of high quality pallet lumber
- Common area with workbenches, and room to work
- 3D printing
- 3-axis Taig CNC
- Soldering, electronics test equipment TBD
- Vinyl cutter
- Sewing machines
- and more
What times are you open?
For the moment, expect us to resume our Sat/Sun noon to 5 pm, as well as Tuesday Menehune, Wednesday 3D Printing, and Thursday Microelectronics (aka Arduino).
Where are you?
362 Pakana, off of Waiko Rd.
What about a Grand Opening?
We want to get our members making again. Expect a Grand Opening about 2 months after we have our soft opening. Any event organizers want to help?
