A machinist? I can imagine how one might be useful, but hardly seems necessary for a bike store or co-op. Do you mean a mechanic?
Good luck. I wish there were more bike co-ops in the world. I wish my town had one. I wish I helped run it.
Is a whole lot of money required to start one? Seems like in many towns it would not be too hard to rent a cheap garage off the beaten track. Tools are expensive, but I would think that the bare bones requirements for tools might only be several thousand dollars. One could wait to get a spoke threader and such.
