And here we go with a new project, the Garage!

We’ve been wanting to do some welding for a while. You ask us. But metal and wood don’t mix. And we didn’t have a welder in our happy team of Sharpeners. So we waited, waiting for the right time, the right person and the right place.

And so did the mechanics and bodywork. We tried to organise it outside our premises, but this proved complicated (insurance, type of premises, subletting, etc.). And we had the same problem of not having many people with expertise in these areas.


But things have changed in recent months. Firstly with the arrival of Morgane, a mechanic by training, who has started to give workshops and courses on vans, and knows everything about mechanics. And then with the arrival of Bruno, a young retiree with a great experience in welding, who offered to help us build the welding activity together.

When you have such a great team around the table, it makes you want to do things, so we looked for a place to test these new manual subjects! And we quickly found a place, perfectly adapted and available for 2 to 3 years, to test these new manual worlds.

The place is located at 7211 Alexandra Street, at the intersection of Jean-Talon and Alexandra, near the Parc and Castelnau metro stations.

The first workshops are scheduled to start on August 29th! You’ll find them here: https://www.les-affutes.ca/en/workshops/garage/


Finally, a word to thank you: all this is possible thanks to you. Thanks to your ideas, because you have given us your desires in these new fields. Thanks to your presence, pandemic or not, inflation or not, heat stroke or not. You are there, the Affûtés live thanks to you, and we can thus dare new ideas like this garage. Long live you, sharp friends!
