A brief tour of the Winnipeg hackerspace "Skullspace" and its neighboring makerspace "AssentWorks." I'm not a member, I don't even live in the province, so all comments are going off of memory from my visit. Skullspace is currently $40/month for membership and AssentWorks is $75-125/month. Both are non-profits, but AssentWorks is geared towards being a "Business and Innovation Entrepreneurial Incubator & Prototyping Facility." They are separate but friendly organizations with some overlapping membership.

Things I forgot: The first yellow thing is a wood planar. There's a metal cutting bandsaw in there. The blue machine beside the drill press is a sandblaster, and the large boxes right before the laser/3d print room are vacuum formers. The room marked ??? on the map is the AssentWorks meeting room with whiteboard walls (unfilmed).

AssentWorks Tools: Shopbot CNC router, large cyclone vacuum, wood bandsaw, metal bandsaw, chop saw, scroll saw, table saw, belt and disc sander, router, planer, welder, drill press, sandblaster, vacuum former (2), Plasma Cutter CNC, CNC mill, bench grinder, 75W CNC lasercutter, 3d printer (2), vinyl cutter, vinyl printer, incubator (2), and tens of thousands of dollars of hand tools and accessories donated by Princess Auto.

Skullspace Tools: Projector, oscilloscope (several), power supplies, function generator (2), soldering irons, digital multimeters, welder, shop vacuum, drill press, buffer, table saw, drum sander, and many hand tools and many others I forgot.
