Free Fudge (Monday, Jan 2nd - Mike )

    DMS Fundraising is so close. We've raised $1385.00 of our $1500.00 goal. Let's finish this up!

We're raising money for a helical head for the 20" planer in the Wood Shop. Anyone who donates $25.00 or more gets a pound of fudge (1/2 lb chocolate & 1/2 lb of mint). Message me (mikeolson@duluthmakerspace.com) after making your donation and I'll get you the fudge.

The reason we need this for the 20” planer is the knives have been sharpened beyond their life span. New knives are $200 - $500. They require regular sharpening, and we no longer have someone to sharpen them locally.

Helical heads have 80-150+ carbide inserts that each have four sharpened sides. If the helical head gets damaged at all it often damages only a couple of these inserts. They are inexpensive and easy to change or rotate. It is a smart replacement that we will get many years of good service from.

We take cash, checks, PayPal (donate button on our homepage), make a pledge (mikeolson@duluthmakerspace.com) and we will email you a bill.

Who We Are And Our Mission Statement (Thursday, Aug 4th - Board )

    Who we are:
    Duluth Makerspace is a 501c3 nonprofit providing an 11,000 sq foot community multi-discipline industrial, arts, and technology space where members get access to tools and equipment for a small monthly fee. We have acted as an incubator for small business, a workplace for artists, a creative outlet, and a location where ideas can become reality.
   
    Some of our members have been able to find employment, start full or part time businesses, help other small local businesses with creative solutions, as well as build and improve personal “do it yourself” skills due to their learning and experience at our MakerSpace.
   
    Our Mission:
    Promote life skills, sustainability, creativity and inspiration by providing access to tools, technical equipment, work space and education to the community at an affordable price.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is a MakerSpace?
A: A Cooperative Workshop, run like a fitness gym, where a monthly membership pays for shared access to tech tools, electronics, woodshop, metalshop, techshop, crafts, classrooms, fabrics, etc! Similar places have been sprouting up across the country. They are a real community asset driving innovation, education and cooperation. Our biggest asset is the other members.
Q: Who is running this?
A: A loose knit group of about 30 very enthusiastic member-volunteers who aspire to endlessly improve and creatively use our 11,000sqft building. Over half of the equipment is on loan or donated from members! The remainder is currently privately funded to keep us well stocked.
Q: How long have you been running?
A: We bought the building end of 2014, and volunteers have been tirelessly working on improving the space since then. We had our grand opening September 17th, 2016.
Q: Who is the place for?
A: All ages (18+ for non-class-based solo access), Women and Men, Anyone who is curious, who wants to learn new things from enthusiastic people.

Anyone wanting to take or teach classes on a wide range of subject matters.
Q: Do you have tool X or can you support hobby X at the shop?
A: If we do not already have the tools we will look into finding a way to integrate it into our offerings. We encourage you to help us gear up and teach the equipment! Our equipment list is helpful.
