Do I really get to use all of this myself?




Have you ever wanted your own pick and place machine? 3D printer? CNC plasma cutter? Are you wasting time and money sending prototypes to be made overseas? Think you could get to market faster by building it yourself?

Gearbox provides access to all of these machines and more for little more than a monthly membership fee. Only pay for what you use, when you use it. We provide the tools and everything you need to use them -- all you have to bring are your materials.


(Note: Machines marked with (*) are subject to an hourly fee, but use of all other machines is included in the cost of membership.)
