We had an excellent weekend at MakerFaire and it was great to see so many members throughout the weekend. We brought the 5-axis Pocket NC and the Piranha Ironworker to MakerFaire. As part of MakerFaire we are offering $200 in free classes with an annual membership purchase, which may be used towards an SBU package, and in addition, STEAM classes are $399. The MakerFaire special expires Friday, May 25th, 2018.
On Friday and Saturday we will be hosting an Act in Space event and members can register to participate at https://actinspace.org/register. The event will start at noon on Friday, May 25th and again at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 26th. The event will wrap up with a winner selection at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. The winner will receive a trip to Washington, D.C. to present the winning idea. Individuals and teams may participate.
Please note that we will be closed on Sunday and Monday for Memorial Day.
Instructors have been submitting their class proposals and we are looking through them and will be adding to our class offerings. If you have an idea for a class that you would like to teach, please submit your proposal. The classes don’t have to use machines, but any machine can be used for a class.
We will now be offering a safety and basic use class pack of $750 for members. Members who choose this package will receive an SBU class voucher for all machines we have regardless of your main shop location. Many of the machines offered in San Jose will not be available in San Francisco.
Going forward, we will be accepting certifications from other organizations such as American Welding Society instead of requiring a separate SBU. We will require a quick checkoff when we do not require an SBU class to be taken by the member.
TheShop is now offering production services using our machines. Give us a call or email for your next project!
We will now be accepting Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and LiteCoin for payment of services and annual memberships.
