Makerspace Open House

Freeside Atlanta is a Nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a space for engineers, programmers, inventors, artists, and lunatics to collaborate. We host this meeting every Tuesday so that people can check out the space, chat with members of the organization, and get together to plan projects, events, and classes.

This is a pretty informal meetup, so don't expect to have to sit through a long, drawn-out meeting. Just be prepared to hang out for a bit with some interesting folks around a bunch of fascinating equipment.

You can get the gate code by emailing [masked] with the subject "gatecode"

You can also get a preview of our space by checking out our photo tour page on Meetup.

 

Directions -

The Space is in the Metropolitan Warehouse complex on Metropolitan Pkwy near Ralph David Abernathy Blvd, and you can do one of two things to get to it after entering the gates of the complex -

1 - Take a right after entering the gate, then your first left, which is the back side of the complex

2 - To get to the front door, take the first right shown on the map. To get to the auto bay doors, take the second right shown and drive around to the back side of the complex.

Overview of the warehouse complex directions found on our wiki.

Street View of the front entrance.

 

If you need any help or have a question, just email us a [masked].

      7 ton pneumatic squeeze press? very compact, very versatile, great for bending shaping and - of course - squeezing - last used for some LIM experiments (sorry, I repurposed the heat controller). Various scales and such. A bazillion mostly sorted screws, nuts, connectors. Random meters. An assortment of polishing things.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
