    We are getting two Techshops - one in Beaverton and the other in Portland. I don't know if I will be able to afford to join though. I'd like to take some of their classes and maybe learn some fabricating skills.

    I'm a member in the SF Bay Area. A lot of iLush parts were fabricated there. It's invaluable to have access to tools I could never afford -- like giant milling machines and the CNC laser cutter -- and the classes to get started with them. Their classes are uneven though. Not all the classes are available all the time, and I'd like to have some things more remedial and others more advanced. Also sometimes their selection of smaller tool is incomplete. Overall though it's a great resource.
