Jim writes in with a cool event for Bay area makers…

TechShop invites all Bay Area Makers to the TechShop Hands-On Open House Friday June 29 and Saturday June 30 from 9 AM to 9 PM. You’ll get a chance to experience some of the many the tools and machines that TechShop provides for its members.

Just like TechShop did at the Maker Faire, TechShop will give everyone the opportunity to actually try out some of TechShop’s many cool tools and machines with the guidance of TechShop staff. You’ll be able to participate in hands-on sessions on the Epilog laser cutters, Bridgeport milling machines, MIG welders, CNC plasma cutter, and the FlashCut desktop CNC milling machine. You’ll get to see first-hand how easy it is to use these machines for your own projects.

Tours of the TechShop facilities will be conducted throughout the day Friday and Saturday.

TechShop is an open workshop space that provides its members with access to many tools and machines, and a place that they can just hang out and work on their projects. TechShop also offers lots of short, inexpensive classes on all the tools and equipment to members and non-members.

The TechShop Hands-On Open House is free, and you don’t need to sign up. Just come to TechShop any time between 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM Friday or Saturday.

    This is killing me. Would they pretty please open a TechShop Los Angeles!

    I think TechShop would also quench a THIRSTY need here in Austin, too! (And likely rake in some fat margins, too!)

    How about one in Phoenix too?

  4. Austringer says:

    How about one in my basement?

    In all seriousness, given the number of people I’ve encountered saying thing that start out, “I’d like to learn to make/do/fix/build….” I’d like to understand why every city with a population greater than a million or so hasn’t had an operation like this for years.
