Exposing the Tool Brands Inside the Make48 Trailer

This past week, Badger Nation was fluxxed with makers from around the country. Make48 was in Madison, Wisconsin for the second stop on our city series tour with Midwest Prototyping and we were pumped to see all the teams work with these amazing products.


To create prototypes you need tools, and do we have some of the best brands for the teams and our tool techs! We’re giving you a look at the tools in the Make48 trailer for The Bodgery event. Guess what, we’ve got more than hammers in there! Take a look at some of our sponsors for the Madison-Bodgery event.



One of Make48 longtime supporters, ShopBot Tools has always been the standard when it comes to CNC routing. At each Make48 event, ShopBot sends one of their Road-Warriors to be a Tool Tech. In this series, Chris Burns was our Wichita tech and also joined the team in Madison!

ShopBot is one of the largest producers of digital fabrication equipment for small-to-mid sized manufacturing, DIY, and education markets. All of their ShopBot tools are designed, built in, and supported from their Durham, NC headquarters.
