I have submitted requests to have new laser cutter (link)
There are a lot of other classes that should be taught, but maybe the system has become too insular to use? A soldering class would be nice, maybe in conjunction with how to etch circuit boards. I would really like to take the class on using that Milling machine, myself. I did take the welding class, which I thought was well done.
My understanding is that classes create additional revenue for the space. In addition, taking classes makes members more involved in the space. Also it is my understanding that classes help bring in as students, people who are not yet members of the space. For these reasons I think classes is an aspect of the space that should be promoted more. I think the website Classes page should be updated more often. Maybe we need a communications officer or something?
