Adric MenningAs a lifelong(sofar) tinkerer on so many things(photo, electronic, chemistry, carpentry…), Even without Quelab in my life or other makerspaces I would still be making, building, taking things apart… inventing and other things.

But with Quelab, the scope size and ability to do said things is always ever expanding. And what I love best is is as a community it gives me an opportunity to share and learn from, and share some of the odd bits of knowledge I have in my head.

Back in 2009, when we first Started working to build Quelab, I had a dream that it would eventually have “Better than your average garage full of all sorts of great making tools.”. It has met and exceeded that so many times, and i expect it will keep it up as we go!

I was one of the first 4 founders, and have served as an officer since our founding, and have served on the board since we switched from being a llc into being a non-profit (roughly Quelab's second year)

As a Board member, I have pretty literally seen it all, through the thick and thin. I have always attempted to put Quelab and the community of its members first. I strive to give all matters the most fairness i can, and try really hard to hear both what people say and what they mean to say. and always use that to help weigh my decisions.


I am interested in being on the Board because dealing I’m interested in seeing the organization grow and become a place more folks can call “my home away from home hobby place”. I am new to QueLab – been here since November. I’m running because I think I have things to offer that can help without being a newbie that wants to change everything.

I‘ve been interested in sparktrickery ever since I stuck a knife from a silver flatware set into the control panel of my grandmother’s electric stove and burned the blade in two at the ripe old age of 3 years. I’ve dabbled in the field in some fashion or another since.

My experience includes doing tool and die work and general maintenance at a place that made electronic components for Western Electric, owned and operated an electric motor rewinding business, worked for Colo DOT in the traffic signal/electrical maint. part of traffic division – 6 ½ years as a supervisor. During my time at CDOT I was the AFSCME Council 76 board president for 4 years and a board member for 10 years.

I ran my own business as an electrical contractor and have been a Colorado Licensed master electrician for 27 years.

I retired and moved to New Mexico 6 years ago to be with my high school sweetie and will be firmly anchored here for quite a while.

My interests are varied and among them is electronic tinkering and model railroading. One of the ways I used to relax is building single and dual gauge track by hand.
