Welcome to the web site of the Metro Detroit Metalworking Club. The MDMC is a diverse group of people interested in metal working of all kinds. Member projects include building machine tooling, miniature engines, experimental aircraft, scratch built cars, scale railroad and metal furniture.
The MDMC also gets booths/tables as a group at some of the local shows such as the NAMES show and the Maker Faire. Members are encouraged to bring out there projects in an effort to promote interest in the hobby. We will be there to answer questions about the projects to try to help like minded people to successfully complete there projects. We also like to show the younger crowd that it is possible to make something and not have to buy everything.
The rotary engine pictured below was built by members of the club. Individual parts were made by many of the members and later assembled into a working engine. This project is the mascot at the shows. Future “Team” builds may happen based on the success of this one.
Anybody who is interested in working with metal is welcome to attend. The meetings are semi formal with an occasional guest speaker who will talk about and discuss a special skill or technique. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month at the Macomb Community Collage South Campus. We are currently in the north lobby of “S” building. Meetings start at 7:00 pm.
Guests are welcome to attend meetings free of charge. If you are interested in joining after a few meetings, there will be a yearly fee of $10.
