...but I'd like to.

I do not belong to one but would very much like to start one. I would like to form a consortium of sorts where the membership donates, or conspires to buy, decent stationary tools. The big liability, as I see it, is "liability". Can one get an insurer to write that policy in our litigious age? The other item in the minus column is space. If one cannot do it in his own shop, it seems that rental or buying an existing and cheap building would be necessary. Any ideas on overcoming these obstacles?

There are places around here that rent shop space to people who don't have a shop. Also one club which at present is closed to new members has its own shop. It owns its own land and building and has its own nice collection of power and hand tools plus space to store your project while building it.

There is another that has has an old industrial building in the city that they rent out space to individuals and small start-ups to work in,they furnish all the large power tools and workspace,and finish room,plus room to store your projects while in progress. They rent by the hour, day ,week month, year.
Another one just rents space partitioned off you furnish the bench and hand tools ,they have the big tools and Dust collection.
There is also an industrial art school that furnishes all the tools except for some hand tools and has an instructor on duty that helps if needed, you work on your own projects.

Just some ideas to pursue.
