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.
