The 23b Shop is open for everyone to use when a key holder is present. Core (key holder) members chip in for the rent and expenses at US$100-200/mo. Donations are always welcome but not required.
General Layout of the Shop


Founded in 2006, the 23B Shop came into being after we found ourselves always gravitating towards the garage to work on robots, cars, rockets, electronics, melee weapons, and other projects whenever we had a party. We put a plan together, then spent 3 months looking for a good site that was affordable.
The result was the 23B shop, located near the Fullerton Metrolink station near downtown. We are active with lots of ongoing projects and offer a wide range of tools and equipment for the mad scientist within our modest space. Also, pudding.
