In hosting a Hackaday World Create Day in our town it is our goal to meet with our friends and members of our small local community to develop big ideas.

If you have a one day project that you have been putting off for so long, this is the day to finish it. We can assist you in making your creation by providing our normal services at no charge. Using our wide selection of specialized tools that you may not have access to anywhere else. The available tools are listed below.

  • 40 Watt Laser Cutter/Engraver
  • 36” x 36” CNC Router
  • CNC Duplicator Wood Lathe
  • Large Spray Finishing Booth
  • 3D Printer
  • Electronic prototyping and soldering equipment
  • Several woodworking and metalworking tools

Our long term goal is to develop new friendships and creations. We would also like to come together with local talent and enter a project for the 2017 Hackaday Prize on behalf of our community. We hope to get as many people involved as we can. Everyone has a different skill set that will help us to build something that matters and can make our world a better place. All while having a great experience!
