The Workshop is the center of the Baum Family Maker Space. Encompassing approximately 2,500 square feet, the Workshop has over 20 workbenches for use by any Viterbi undergraduate student. A wide variety of tools and parts are available for students to use. A limited amount of storage space is available for students to store their work in the Maker Space.

Hand Tools

The Workshop has six storage cabinets, identified on the drawing above by the letters A through F.  These contain tools available for student use.  Students can only use tools for which they have taken the associated training for using the tool.  See the page on Maker Space Training Levels for more information.

The chart below shows where various tools are stored in the cabinets.  Other tools may be aviable in the Machine Shop and the Maker Space staff can assist in locating them.
