Project: Laser Cut Signs



Our friends over in Dublin Maker were in need of some signs for their upcoming event. We are makers so we gave it a go. They wanted road sign styled signage. We started off by finding the just right font. We need something that would work well as a stencil. We ended up choosing Unconform Round.

New Gates

IMG_20160709_202133We have a lovey new electric gate installed in out space over the last week. It will make it easier for our members to come and go from the space. Check out all the photos from the install in our gallery.


Lasersaur Realignment



We have been without our much loved laser cutter since our move to our new space. A host of work had to be carried out to get the laser up and running. A new extraction system had to be installed in our electronics. The tube had to be reinstalled in the laser which was taken out for its trip to Blackpitts. The final bit of work was a whole realignment. Each of the 3 lens had to be calibration which takes hours.

Check out the photos from our first few cuts in our gallery.




July Open Social


This months Open Social takes place on Saturday 16th July at 7pm. That date will see us just one week away from Dublin Maker. You’ll find TOG members in a state of terror, that their projects and things are not ready. You’ll find them hunched over laptops and soldering irons. Drop in, pat them on the head, and tell them that everything will be ok.


Our Open Social makes a great alternative Saturday evening in town. If you’ve never been in before, we’ll give you the grand tour.  The space stays open until the last member is left……usually the small hours of Sunday morning. The evening is free to attend for members and visitors alike. Our doors will be open from 7pm. No booking is required…. just turn up. You can drop in for 10 minutes, or stay the whole night. We have parking available. Bring beer, food, gadgets! Hope to see you there.
