Bodgery opens at former Oscar Mayer site

A 14,000-square-foot maker space has relocated to at 740 Oscar Ave. in a portion of the former Oscar Mayer plant.

The Bodgery — a membership community workshop that allows people to be creative with tools and machines they might not normally have at home or be able to afford — is open for business. In a Wisconsin State Journal story, Bodgery president John Eich described the nonprofit as offering tools ranging from sewing machines to 3D printers.

Members pay $50 a month for key-fob access to the space and interest has grown, with about 200 members currently.
