Construction Update


MakerspaceCT Is Coming To Connecticut

Grand Opening is Saturday, April 13, 2019! For details, please click here!


The recent load-in of our Bridgeport milling machines was quite a task. We will have three of these available for members to use, more than any other community makerspace in the area. And by the way, we have a Haas CNC mill as well (you can see it in the background of this video).

Date: March 27, 2019


Our machine shop is coming together. Much of the equipment has been delivered over the past two weeks. Here’s are pictures of the Haas Automation, Inc. CNC mill, close-up views of the South Bend lathe and a few shots of the Bridgeports as they were being loaded in.

We are continuing to outfit our woodshop with high-end equipment. This is our crew unboxing the Powermatic planer.

The future is bright at MakerspaceCT, especially now that the new lighting is getting installed.

We are very excited to unveil one of the first of many high-end machines for our woodshop. Say “hello” to the Sawstop Industrial Cabinet Saw!

Everywhere you go on our job site, you see DEWALT tools. Thanks Stanley Black & Decker for your generous support of our makerspace and Downtown Hartford.

We are excited to be getting deliveries of tools for the woodshop by JET Woodworking, SawStop and Powermatic.

Our shiny new air handling units arrived today. As you can see, we had to cut a 12×9 hole in the side of the building to get these in. Didn’t get a chance to document the actual lift up into the hole but these are before and after shots.
