#redirect [[Hackerspace Infos]]
Noisebridge is, amongst other things, a provider of infrastructure for technical and creative projects, and a community of like-minded individuals. There are other spaces in San Francisco and the greater bay area that also have similar intentions and alignments to goals.
 
 
 
In order to help members of both organizations locate resources at either place, we've started to put together this resource listing. We encourage people to get off their butts and do cool projects, and use this list to expedite the process of doing so, by finding the tools you need, at the location that is most convenient for you.
 
 
 
'''This list isn't always up to date! Please help populate this list to the best of your knowledge, that will make it more useful.'''
 
 
 
===[http://techshop.ws/ TechShop]===
 
Location: San Francisco and Redwood City
 
 
 
Has stronger focus on providing professional grade tools, such as laser cutters, CNC mills and Shopbots. Members of Noisebridge and Techshop frequently have overlapping interests and requirements.
 
 
 
Apparently, Noisebridge members can get a 1/2 price membership to TechShop. And the other way around.  Awesome!
