For general information about the Makerspace Leiden check our main website.
This Wiki is for members (or deelnemers). We collectively maintain our documentation of tools, processes and what not here.
A list of all the Tools we have documented; or by group:
- Some of the larger Wood making tools
- Some of the larger Metal making tools
- Some of the larger Categorie:CNC tools
- All tools for Categorie:Electronics that we've documented sofar.
We have quite a few more tools. These are just not (yet) documented. Ask on the mailing list to arrange for in-situ instructions and help.
We have some procedures to manage the MakerSpace:
And some general principles:
- Always try to leave the space cleaner than you found it.
- All tools have a place -- so put tools back where you found them.
- If it is a mess; speak up & clean up. If you find a machine in a mess; clean it or do no use it. If you use it - it becomes your sole responsibility to clean things up. No ifs. No buts.
- If things run out - replenish them, reorder them or at the very least report it to the mailing lists. Receipts can go into the jar (with your name on it) or to the Hans.
- Be excellent & try to not be on fire.
Safety and Noise
Safety is not optional. Following the Rules and Instructions are mandatory (and generally a good idea if you value your hands/legs/eyes and what not). We have a few machines that will happily rip your arm off or blast your eye out.
Read this list of all tools that have mandatory safety instructions at least once.
Equipment in the highest Categorie:NoiseCat1 cannot be used after before 07:00 and 19:00 (these are machines which require earprotecting too).
When using Categorie:NoiseCat2 in the evenings - do consider our neighbours. If you need earmuffs - you are probably too loud.
- You can get in contact with the other members of the Makerspace by writing on the list dedicated to the members: email@example.com.
- Read the Safety Rules and the NetworkGuidelines, How to Open, close, and clean the space.← especially for new members!
- (Manuals for) the available tools and machinery at the Space: Man-made list, or Automagically made-list (Might differ. Try both, consider helping merging)
- Woordenlijst, an attempt to explain the MSL-jargon
- Documentation of various projects
About this wiki
This wiki is the result of voluntary work by members, and has grown over the years, often in a non-structured way. Please be patient and offer your help if you find something missing or wrong.
You can do so by asking to be given an account or, at the very least, write on the mailing list: firstname.lastname@example.org.
These pages contain useful information, but they need some work.
