We normally have 2 or more tours throughout the year. This year we went through the Wood Magazine's shop and the Shopsmith shop and studio also in DesMoines IA. We are planning to tour Kreg tools within the year. To see more, take a look at our web site.
I am glad to see that co-operation in the US, Dick.

Although it is handy to have a shed with all the equipment supplied for people such as myself who cannot build a shed.

The "shed" I have joined has 2 table saws (1 sliding panel saw) , 2 large band saws, 2 router tables, commercial 15" thickness planer, 6" jointer, lathes, scroll saw plus many other metal working and wood working tools.

Some is owned by the "shed" and some is left there by members for other members to use under supervision.

I think the idea of tours to some of the places you mentioned would be appreciated by the club members.

These are not my figures - they are from the web site for the Strathfield Men's Shed...

Good to see that the idea is spreading- I wait to see if the idea will catch on in US... I doubt their responsible bodies are that altruistic...

Are you a member of a "shed"...?


PS I see from your profile that you are.....

The Strathfield Menís Shed is a member of the Menís Sheds Australia, an informal network of over 400 Menís Sheds around Australia.

It is essentially a meeting place for men who have some time to spare and want to find worthwhile and meaningful activity. They may be interested in working on an individual project, fixing up some broken items around the house, working together on some community project or just sitting around for a coffee and a chat.

jw2170 Thanks BJ.

I know of a place nearby that sells offcuts of plastic. may have to pay them a visit.

bobj3 Hi James

It was some 1/4" thick plastic I had around in the shop it can be anything you have that is 1/4" thick ,but plastic works the best for a press in fit.

How about a snapshot after you get it done..

Or try and cut it with a coping saw.

What was the white plastic you used?

Haven't got a scroll saw but know a guy that does and is good at it
