Hey @Joey_Staunton - great to hear you’re interested in VHS!
I agree with Yeung. There are more hours now for non-keyholders. Also with the limited numbers in the space due to Covid…and the ability to book access and equipment like the laser online, you’ll find you have more space to work and more tool access because there’s never more than 10 folks in the space. I was in the space a few weeks back and had it almost all to myself on a Thursday night.
We’ve also bought some excellent new equipment during Covid including a new tablesaw with a sawstop, new mitre saw, new airbrushing equipment, plus other goodies…all made possible by our awesome members.
Just a heads up that right now it is difficult to do any training on specialized equipment in the machine shop (metal lathe,etc) as only one person at a time can be in there. In the meantime laser training is continuing (thanks Tristan/Jon/LCC) as well as tablesaw certification. And…we have a bunch of 3d printers that we’ve made available for members to borrow. It’s great to do those long prints at home!
Our slack community is very active also so that is a great place to ask questions and get to know people (for vouching) while we’re all having to social distance. It’s also been a great community during this crazy time!
No pressure from us to join up if you’d like to hold off, but know the space is active and people are working away on projects even with Covid. It’d be great to have you get involved.
Let us know if you have other questions.
Cheers and hope to see you soon at the space.
