Maker Saturday Webcasts – Tools for Making Things with Jim Newton – 7/21/2007 1:00 PM PDT –
Ever had an idea for something you’d like to make–but you had no idea what tools you might need for the task? While demonstrating how to build an electromechanical digital clock, Jim Newton will talk about different kinds of tools–low-tech, such as a drill press or a welder, and others more high-tech, such as laser and plasma cutters. Jim will also talk about TechShop, a community-based machine shop based in Menlo Park, California.
Jim is a lifetime maker, veteran BattleBots builder, and former MythBuster. In 2006, he co-founded TechShop with the goal of giving anyone interested in technology access to the necessary tools and a creative environment for creating individual projects.

I wish there was something like this in NYC.
Not to take anything away from the efforts of techshop’s owner, the concept isn’t exactly new. I recall reading of garages for the DIY car owner or hot rodder in California decades ago. Space to work and access to tools not practical for a FYI to own.
