We are finally ready to open

We are moved in to our new shop in Building 141, at 16722 Roper Street on the Mojave Air and Space Port. There is still a lot to do, but the shop is ready for use. We are planning an open house on Saturday, June 4th, where you can see what we have to offer.

This is no April Fool’s joke!

IMG_6480We have building 141 as of April 1, and will be ready to start moving in this weekend. We will be meeting at building 141 this Friday at 5 pm to start planning. In addition, I have an agreement from my former employer to put some equipment on loan indefinitely, which could end up as a donation. This includes a milling machine, lathe, welding equipment and much more. He is coming to Mojave next week to make a plan for that equipment so some time next week we can start setting that up.

For anyone who is interested in getting involved with MM who is not already on our email list, here is a map of the airport showing the location of building 141.

Building 141 Available

IMG_6480We have found another building available on the airport that better suits our needs. It is Building 141, and it would be much cheaper and is already in usable condition. One of our prospective members is working on the lease, and we might be able to move in within a week or two. We will be having a meeting there tomorrow at 11:30. If you are interested in joining then you are welcome to join us, or you can download the membership agreement from this site.

There is an office and restroom, as well as a fenced in area outside. The airport is still doing some work on it but it will be complete by the time we are ready to move in.

Meeting at Building 35 Tomorrow at 5:30 pm

Sorry for the late notice for anyone not already on our mailing list. We will be having a meeting at Building 35 tomorrow at 5:30 to look at the building and discuss plans for renovation. Anyone interested in joining is welcome. I have the keys so we can look inside and see what needs to be done. I will also try to get a ladder to reach the roof.

Building 35

I have verified that Building 35 on the Spaceport is available. It will take a lot of work to get it usable but with enough volunteers we could get it done. If anyone is interested in joining the Mojave Makers and had experience with any building trades or wants to learn, we can use your help. Here are some pictures so you have an idea of what we are dealing with.

The inside is mostly gutted, but but has all necessary utility hookups including sewage and gas. We are planning to have a meeting to look at the building and discuss plans going forward. Anyone interested in getting involved is welcome, and details will be posted soon.
