We held a bicycle clinic on May 1st and helped several community member fix and tune their bicycles for a spring/summer of fun riding!
Bryan Jenson upgraded the electronic key system to the space. As a result of Bryan’s efforts, the space was able to retire an old server that consumed $5-$10 of electric each month. Bryan hopes to increase functionality and usability of future versions of the system. If you see Bryan be sure to thank him in person of his great work. Awesome job Bryan!
This Saturday’s repair cafe will be focused on games and gaming. Have a board game that is missing pieces, an old game system that isn’t working right, or want to get into the world of retro game emulation? We will be there to help find answers, replacements, solutions, and suggestions. We are of course still available to help with other items that you might need help fixing too.
Repair cafes are set up for the community to bring in things that you want to learn how to fix or would like help diagnosing. We are not experts, but we are problem solvers, and will do our best to help you learn and empower you to try diagnosing and repairing yourself.
The space recently purchased a second 3D printer for member and community use. This printer will help to relieve the waiting time for folks to use a 3D printer during high usage times. Come and check out the new tools we have.
Saturday, March 16th at 1pm we will be giving anyone interested a introduction to 3D design and Tinker CAD.

If you plan on taking this class, bringing your own laptop would be encouraged, but we have extra if needed. A free Autodesk account will also be needed to access Tinker CAD.
