Since we are a non-profit organization (501c3), anything purchased by and for the makerspace is exempt from Texas sales tax. Typically a Texas Sales and Use Tax Exemption Certification (2nd page) is used, but some retailers have a registration process to speed up the checkout process. The following is a list of retailers we have registered with, and how to make use of the tax free process:

Store Details
Wal-Mart We have been assigned a "customer ID number", stored in the admin wiki "Vendors" page.
Home Depot File:Home depot card.pdf or can find the Makerspace by searching by organization name and zip code.
Microcenter Customer ID#: 52953676 (Call 800-743-7537 or let rep at store know you are tax exempt and give customer ID)

Snacks and Drinks

Through the generous donations of our members and guests, we are able to stock the kitchen with snack food and drinks. Currently we are in need of volunteers to help us keep the kitchen stocked.

Stan Simmons has the makerspace (tax exempt status) attached to his Costco card.

Paul Brown has the makerspace Sam's Club card.


  • Bulbs: F32T8 - 4 ft. T8 32-Watt Cool White (4100K)
  • Ballasts: Standard F32T8 ballasts
  • Most bulbs at the space are Cool White (model# ending in CW). Purchasing Cool White is recommended so they match the existing bulbs. (They also seem to be the cheapest)
