Note: While we will do our best to update this as things change you may be best suited to ask on the Google Groups message board if something is functional. Keep in mind Milwaukee Makerspace is volunteer run, if you are interested in helping speak to an area champion, there are always projects to be built for the wood shop, training to be done, cleaning, and other items to help out.
