I Learned To Weld At MakerspaceCT

Notorious Motorsport, Waterbury

My Name is Marvin and I reside here in Connecticut after arriving from Jamaica 20 years ago. I’ve been servicing high-performance vehicles for as long as I can remember. Two years ago, I opened Notorious Motorsport in Waterbury, CT. My staff and I build stock, high-performance, and race engines to the highest tolerances possible. We deliver the best components available with dependable performance to all of our customers.

Building custom intakes and turbo exhaust systems involves complicated bends and fabrication of stainless and aluminum tubing. I signed up for the TIG basics class at MakerspaceCT and then added additional intermediate instruction from their highly qualified instructor. Once I felt confident, we invested in equipment at our shop and are now welding our own custom piping.

There’s really no other place like MakerspaceCT- where you can get solid instruction and hands-on experience in just a few hours. Then, continue to return and build on those skills!
