We are working with freelance fabricators to provide structured access to workshop equipment on a bulk discounted basis. Freelancers build and service their own client base, and rely on our facilities, expertise and network to help them deliver.

Are you working on side projects that need space, AND equipment availability on your schedule?

Is your business growing? Do you hope to pursue your craft as a full-time business? We can help.


Our in-house equipment includes the list below. Shop and equipment are available for self-service to partners in our Freelancer Platform program, and can be made available to clients for larger production runs. We have relationships with partners who have other equipment which can be available on a per-project basis, and ability to provide flexible space during a project.
