  • Ownership of ones own tools has much to do with how well they are cared for. That should be obvious. The idea of “sharing” my CNC milling machine’s is almost ridiculous to the extreme. First, they cost me a huge personal sacrifice to own, and secondly; many hundreds of hours time learning to effectively write programs to make hi-tech parts, and the requisite tooling. I wouldn’t let some bozo start punching buttons and play around with my machines any more than I’d let some homeless bum pushing his cart past my shop take my truck for a drive. This ‘pie in the sky" dribble smacks of hippies on drugs, or Communism at it’s best. What happened to personal responsibility? Groups and committee’s produce nothing but delusions and public debt. It has always been the individual, creative mind that made a difference.

No public wish lists :(
