Workshop Care Night

July 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free – $12.00
Two people changing blade on Table Saw

The Ace Workshop is a community space which means that we all have a role to play beyond simply working on our projects and cleaning up after ourselves. This social evening is all about working together to care for our tools, make repairs, and practice concepts covered in our Shop Basics class like logging assets and finding information on the wiki. Masks are required for this event.

Class Type: Exposure
Level:
Beginner
Timing: 2 hours
Location: Suite #214 Workshop
Prequisite: Shop Basics
Certifications: None
Age: 18+

Our expert host, Howard Cohen, will help guide the group through a variety of repairs as we work in teams of two to tackle a checklist of current workshop maintenance and repair needs. This beginner-accessible volunteer event is a great entrypoint into both Ace shop culture and tool repair concepts + an easy way to make your monthly contribution of effort.

Each event is unique! One month we may align the Table Saw blade, repair a vacuum duct and re-home new tools; the next we may wax the tool tabletops and replace the cyclone filter.

Bonus: Try signing up with a friend or a date! At Ace we use the buddy system for all repairs.

What to bring: A notebook or well-charged phone for accessing slack and the wiki.
What to wear: Closed-toe shoes, short sleeves, and work clothes. Long hair must be tied back.
Safety Gear: Eye protection, ear protection, and all the hand sanitizer will be provided. You can also bring your own.

New Guests must sign up for a FREE Guest Account and sign their liability waiver before this event starts.
