    Is there free parking at this venue?

    • Max A

      Subway is a reasonable option for this location .... TTC route 106 and 196 stops right in front of the building. Route 196 takes 10-15 minutes from Downsview Station.

    I will probably demo a high performance stepper motor system. It is what I use to drive my cnc machine's 100lb mechanism.

    Don't see why not. How much does one cost and when are they shipping?

      Just got tracking info so should be here this week. I got it for around 180 with shipping, from their kickstarter project. Just started reading up on raspberry pi tho...those are probably better to start off with...less hit on the wallet if you fry one.
