In January I joined a new makerspace in Toronto called Steamlabs. It is located in the new CSI building on Spadina Avenue.
I am participating in their membership exchange program where in exchange for a few volunteer shifts a month I get a free membership.
So far it has been fantastic. I have learned how to use the laser cutter, learned a little bit of arduino, have met lots of people and have accumulated endless ideas of things I can make. I have made use of a few screwdrivers taking apart my magic bullet in order to fix the base gear.
It is still in pieces as I have yet to buy super glue to fix the broken plastic part.
I have laser cut a few things already:
And I am working on some new laser cut projects.
I am really excited to be making use of the space and the tools and joining this new community.
