Well gentlemen, thank you for your frank and thoughtful responses. I purposely moved away from the big city to an isolated area because of the good road and off-road cycling it offers. There is nothing like a communal "maker space" here. The only two framebuilders here are well known (NAHBS winners, etc.), and they're snooty; they politely but firmly turn me away for repair projects. (One of them doesn't even want to initially engage customers directly, but wants customers to first go through a local bike shop!) There is no way in heck that they will let me share their space or tools, and I don't even want to ask.

All of which is a long winded way of saying that regretfully, I won't be joining your club. I do like to make things, though, so there's a kit guitar in my future.....
