Steps for Access

  • Note: you must have a woodworking 1 upgrade to use the table saw, compound sliding miter saw, benchtop router and the panel saw.

[2] Go to the Makerspace check-out window and ring the bell. The Makerspace staff will swipe your ID every time to verify [1] and then grant you access and support for using the Machine Shop.

*College of Engineering faculty and staff are not required to pay the materials fee, however, they must have the appropriate CoE permit.
