The Ace Makerspace Metal shop is set up for basic and CNC Machining. In the Ace Makerspace Metal shop, you can use our metalworking tools to make things of various metals and plastics. Use the milling machine to cut steel, aluminum, or other materials to precise size and shape. The lathe can cut the same materials into round or threaded shapes. You can bend, grind, cut, solder to create a great variety of things. Need a custom bracket to hold something to your bike? How about mold casting? Replacement parts for whatever? The machines and techniques of the Metal Shop make it possible at Ace Makerspace!

Certification and learning how to use Metal Shop tools

The CNC milling machine, like several other tools at Ace Makerspace, requires that you take training to use it. We are currently re-designing our class offerings in order to accommodate COVID Safe offerings. Please contact us for the latest offering or to express interest.

Unfortunately at this time, Ace Makerspace does not offer a hot shop (welding, casting, etc.) but we look forward to growing in the future into a location that can accommodate hot work.
