The focus here is to provide a general purpose workshop that is capable of providing what is needed for making things in metal, wood, plastic and that also will permit you to make things with electronics.

The Makerspace or Hackerspace or Fab-Lab is part of a new industrial revolution that promises to place the means of production in the hands of the craftsman. More pragmatically, although the means of production on a large scale remain within the property of large organizations, short-term and small-scale production is now an essential part of current business models. This results in the craftsman having greater production capacity.
