Club Machine Tool Camp (MTC) is hosting an open house on January 23, 2016 from 9am-5pm. During this event Club MTC will provide tours of their maker space, live demos of machines, and an opportunity to learn more about the tools and technology they offer.
This is the first maker space in the area and aims to allow local inventors, crafters, entrepreneurs, and those who enjoy creating an opportunity to bring their projects to fruition. Members of Club MTC receive access to expensive equipment and machines, project assistance, creative consulting, discounts on their informative classes, storage, WiFi, and more. The available machines include a CNC router, a CNC mill, a laser engraver, a large laser cutter, 3D printers, a large format printer, a MIG welder, a press brake, design software, and much more.
Owner, Scott Kauphusman was Chippewa County Economic Development Corporation’s entrepreneur of the year for 2015 and has brought a very new and unique concept to the Chippewa Valley with Club MTC maker space. The low cost access to expensive machines and an open work space could provide local residents the opportunity to turn a fun hobby into a budding small business without the huge upfront costs.
Plan to attend their upcoming makerspace open house on January 23rd from 9am to 5pm at MTC located at 128 W River Street in Chippewa Falls.
We hope you can make it!
