At Arch Reactor we were disappointed to hear that TechShop is seeking bankruptcy protection and has closed all their locations, including their St Louis location in Cortex. We know how important being able to use TechShop's workspace and equipment was to their members, many of whom relied on those facilities to do work for their small businesses.

 

If you are a member of TechShop who is now looking for a new workshop, we'd like to welcome you into the Arch Reactor community! We don't have all of the equipment that TechShop had, but we do have a laser cutter, 3D printers, and a variety of woodworking and metalworking tools.

 

 

Please see our calendar for times when our space will be open and feel free to come get a tour and meet members at any event. We'll be having an Open House on Sunday, November 19 at 7:00pm, which would be a fine time for TechShop members to visit and learn more about Arch Reactor. The space is also opened at other times unscheduled. See "Space Status" on the right side of our home page to see whether the space is open at the current time.

Note:  Eclipse Glasses will be available at Arch Reactor at the following dates/times:

Tuesday, August 15, from 6:30pm - close

Saturday, August 19, from 12:30pm - 4:30PM

Suggested price is $1/pair

Eclipse Glasses are sold-out at most of the NASA-Approved Vendors, so this sight is all too common.

One of our AR Members purchased glasses last fall and still has many available.  

Please be safe watching the eclipse!    All glasses at AR are from NASA-Approved Vendors!

About Our Hackerspace

Arch Reactor was founded in 2009 by a group of friends who liked technology, programming, making, and pizza. Now St. Louis' largest hackerspace, Arch Reactor's growing membership continues to bring new skills, projects, equipment, and people to one place.

For a deeper understanding of what we're about, you should check out our explanation of hackerspaces, perhaps read about one of our members' projects, or (best of all) come meet us in person at the next open event!
