Makerspace Nanaimo

Nanaimo now has a Maker space. I went to a work party on Saturday to check in out. They are just starting but have a few pieces of equipment. They have a nice table saw with a built in router, Band saw, bench grinder, and a bunch of computer equipment and electronic parts. They are going to be bringing some 3D printers, CNC Machine, welding gear, and some soldering stations. The cost is $20 a month for a basic membership that lets you in at certain times and $40 for 24/7 access. They are having a meeting this Tuesday at 7 P.M. if anyone is interested.

They are also looking for equipment if you have anything you don't need let them know.

If you want to stop by people are always there every Saturday between 10 and 2 P.M. and Tuesdays 6:30 to 9 P.M. Or you could P.M. me and I could give you a tour at a different time.
