We are Make Hack Void, a Hackerspace* in Canberra, Australia.
Our space (Map) is a community workshop in Downer where members can come to work on their projects, get access to tools and expertise, and meet like-minded people. We have membership options including associate & student membership rates, and casual membership rates.
We also hold Maker Meetups on the 1st, 3rd & 5th Tuesdays of each month where anyone at all can chat, show and tell, get help or advice, and talk about their projects. You don't have to be a member to come to a Meetup.
Our group includes people with extremely diverse interests. Fibreglass moulds to FPGA electronics, Arduinos to DIY pizza ovens. Plus lots more. We're all interested in making things, hacking on projects, and we're not afraid of voiding warranties if we have to.

Setting up the Roland JWX-10
Mill has previously been set up and working with PC and supplied software - so good initial baseline.
However user documentation is not very good past just setting up machine and installing software.

The second MHV Arduino meetup will be happening at MHV on Saturday 2nd March 2013. Tim Suess has again offered to open the space from around 12:30pm until 7pm and maybe later. Thanks Tim!
So bring along your Ardiuno projects for an afternoon of making.
This is open to all MHV members interested in working on Arduino projects, not just the people who attended the MHV Arduino Beginners workshops. You can join MHV on the day if you are not already a member.

To continue the excitement of Linux Conf 2013, we are running a barcamp-style unconference at MHV.
An unconference is a freeform conference, where the content and management is provided by the attendees themselves. That is, everyone (even you) is expected to contribute, be it running a talk, helping set up or organise lunch.
Linux Conf is kindly supporting the event by providing lunch.

To fit better with LCA timing, the third Maker Meeting of January will be moved to Wednesday the 30th instead, at 6:30pm
Everyone is welcome, and encouraged to bring along a project they are currently working on to share with the group.
We also order pizza, if you would like a share in half a large pizza from Crust, please bring along $11. With sufficient interest, we may run a BBQ instead.
Please note that since the space is an active workshop, enclosed footwear is required.
For direction on how to get to our space, see below:

I designed and made an acrylic box to hold our Rep Rap Pro Huxley 3d printer.
