One could call our little group a hackerspace. One of the main advantages of a hackerspace is the availability of tools which would otherwise not be feasible to have at home. Currently, we have a few 3D printers, a CNC router for PCB milling and a stitching machine, and after prior arrangement, we sometimes borrow some of the lab kit that our school owns (obviously under the surveillance of a teacher 😉). We are still trying to gather more tools to make available to all members.
