Making it Happen
Note From Founder kelley Roy
Hello ADX Community,
Who else is digging that fall is here? Nothing beats flannel weather, a cup of hot coffee and the smell of freshly cut lumber! Here at ADX we have all of the above. I hope you can come by, join in the good vibes and make the project of your dreams!
At ADX we are not just a building with tools but building a strong and resilient community of incredibly talented and creative individuals. We want to thank our current members and welcome our new members by hosting a happy hour that transitions into a nerd night with Natalie (one of our amazing members) on September 18th! Read below to get more details. If you are interested in hosting your own night I would love to hear your ideas!
I can’t wait to see you at ADX for a class, working on your project or for happy hour with me and fellow members to get to know each other and nerd out.
Here’s to lifelong learning and working together!

TIG welding basics
september 24, 6-10pm
Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding produces the cleanest welds, provides the welder the greatest amount of control, but is the most technically advanced and takes the most practice to master. This class will give you the fundamental skills and build the confidence needed to take your welding to the next level. Learn how to properly set up the machine, clean and maintain your tools, and the properties of a good weld. Special attention will be given to the safety of the welder and those working around them.
Router table basics
september 26, 6-10
Perhaps the most versatile power tool in the Wood Shop, a tabletop router is essentially a big electric motor fitted with a collet that holds a cutting head (bit), a router runs uni-directionally and (often) at variable speed (the router is the machine, the bit is the tool). Learn how to safely use the machine and tools in this 4-hour workshop, including properly setting up the table and exchanging bits. Gain lots of hands-on experience and build a sweet box in the process!
***Looking for a class on how to use a CNC Router? This is a very different tool! We offer a CNC Router Basics class as well, check out our class catalog for a list of all the current postings.
