Metalwork @ Makespace
Makespace is a community workshop in Cambridge, filled with different equipment from 3D printers, Laser Cutters, CNC Routers and Lathes to sewing, crafting and electronics tools. Members get 24/7 access to the space for £40/month - see

This survey is to help understand the interest and volunteer effort available for bringing proper metalworking capabilities to Makespace assuming suitable space could be secured. Please feel free to share this with anyone in the Cambridge area that would be interested in Metalworking facilities if Makespace had them, whether they are currently a member or not.

It takes a lot of initial volunteer effort to plan, meet h&s requirements, choose machines, prepare a space, install equipment and get it ready for use. It ranges from physical DIY (building partition walls/supporting infrastructure, painting, installing etc) to operational work (planning, working with suppliers, risk assessments, writing training etc). Could you help with getting the metalwork capabilities in place? *
It then takes significant ongoing volunteer effort to train members and maintain machines. Without this, it is not worth investing in the capabilities as it is important they are accessible to members if we do get them. Could you help support the ongoing training requirements?
