This CNC tool can be used to engrave into metals.
Announcing a New Professional Development Program for Teachers
MakeHaven is for
The perfect place to create and get feedback on your early prototype or just engage with a community of people working on the frontiers of technology.
Connect with others who share your passion. Share the skills you have developed expand your horizons.
Experiment with new medium and challenge your ideas to create something unique. Hone woodworking, sewing or printmaking skills.
Multiple Fused deposition modeling printers which lay down plastic layer by layer to build your designs.
CNC Wood Mill
A large platform which an attached router which can be controlled by a computer to cut out intricate custom designs.
Several systems for harnessing the power of a CO2 laser to cut into or engrave wood. These can be used to make incredibly precise works of art.
Full workshop with all the equipment needed for most personal projects including: table saw, band-saw planer and hand tools.
A place to work on electronics platforms like Beaglebone, Raspberry Pi or Arduino. Or to solder a basic circuit board together.
The basic equipment for standard home brewing as well as a custom built computer controlled home brewing machine for the advanced home brewer.
A three axis fully enclosed metal mill, capable of cutting aluminum or steel with precision.
Sewing and Craft
Sewing machines, crafting equipment and a computer controlled embroidery machine.
Machine that heats and allows you to form plastic sheets into specific shapes. Great for making costumes, molds or a housing for your drone.
We will email you about upcoming events and workshops.
It would be great to designate an area of the cutter for smaller pieces and install a catching system like this. Recommended by Joel Greenwood
With MH's excellent lending library, I have /almost/ all the tools I need to remove my Prius hybrid battery; the one exception seems to be a torque wrench that works in the low ft-lb range (20-30 ft-lb), which is required for re-tightening certain bolts when re-installing the battery. This would fill a gap in the current torque wrench options (have: 40-200 in-lb and 50-250 ft-lb; missing: 200-600 in-lb aka 17-49 ft-lb range), and would be helpful to me & perhaps other future Prius DIYers :-)

Spiral mixers are efficient and effective dough mixers. They differ from the planetary (or KitchenAid) style in two very important ways.
First, there is an agitator arm in the center of the bowl that prevents the dough "riding" up the hook, getting stuck, forcing you to stop the machine and slide it back down.
Second, and most importantly, they are specialized; designed with one purpose in mind, kneading dough. To achieve that, the bowl rotates around a rotating, and fixed, dough hook.
I'd like to propose a few more workshop/classes on some of the textile tools available at the space. The rug tufting class has to be one of the most successful operations at MakeHaven - why not have some special training available for CNC Embroidery and the knitting machine?
