There is also now a public facebook page for the group here:
(There are currently far more people in the organizing group, than the public page, but of course the organizing group is much older)
I have gotten increasing interest from students and others on and around campus. We will soon begin duplicating 3D printers.
I do not claim to be the 'leader' in any sense. any person with good ideas and initiative is welcome to any resources I can provide.
I would be very happy if there were so much constructive activity going on that I cannot keep up, but for as long as my assistance is beneficial, I will try.
I am currently in negotiations for a very promising location with an impressive retro CNC machine, lathes, saws, drills, welding equipment, and more. The owner of the equipment shares our vision, and so he is willing to allow conditional, responsible access to his equipment.
We are currently discussing reasonable (non-profit) membership dues. I expect the final numbers will be something like:
Month-to-month Maker membership: $18 per month
Ulti-maker membership (contributor deductions): $12 per month
Multi-month membership deductions available
Archon Status: $50+ per month
Monthly rent for the whole Makerspace is looking like up to $230 with electrical costs. Any amount in dues, in excess to the upkeep costs will go toward good equipment, and/or other exciting contributor determined investments.
