About Us

The Shop is the new Rapid City makerspace - a community workshop where members can come to use tools and equipment. Why spend hundreds of dollars on a tool that you will only use for one project? For less than the price of that one tool, you have access to an entire workshop full of industrial-level equipment and tools, a knowledgeable staff with decades of experience, and other members that are here for the same purpose as you: Learn, Create, and Connect. The Shop has a wide variety of industrial and commercial tools and equipment - everything you need to start and finish your personal and professional projects. Scroll down to see the equipment that will be available to you.
