so weird, I just had my first lathe class on this very day at TechShop in Menlo Park… check it out if there’s one in your area—it’s a great alternative to buying 500k worth of shop equipment! http://techshop.ws/take_classes.html
Thanks for the shout out man.. I work at TechShop MP and love the fact that there are bike builders utilizing the shop. I’m getting ready to start a CB750 Cafe Racer and am planing to take the sketch-up class so I can machine a set of custom rear-sets myself on the Tormach. Great to know there are others riders in the area that are aware of what we offer!
