  1. THS does not accept material donations. We do not want your old laptops, computer parts, broken electronics, tools, etc. We do not want to fix your stuff. We do not want to become a waste center.
  2. Be excellent to each other.
  3. Members may keep one large container in the garage for their own tools, parts, and projects. In the event you need additional space, just communicate with us via Slack.
  4. Be certain to double check that you have powered everything off and locked all windows before locking the space and closing the garage door.


Generally, members are responsible for their own safety. It is assumed that you have proper medical insurance in Japan to cover any injuries incurred while at the space.

  1. Safety glasses are strongly encouraged for all machines and soldering equipment
  2. For all machinery, if you have not used it before, ask for training first. When in doubt, ASK FOR HELP!
