Watching Monster Garage the other day (does anyone else here watch it?), it made me wonder about the regulars on the forums, since there seems to be much enthusiasm in making stuff.
Since I'm just another PChem troll, I've had to learn how to fabricate a variety of things on and off for a few years now. I know how to machine most things but my welding skills are awful especially since I have such little experience. I also dabble in putting together some electronic circuits. By no means do I even consider myself at an intermediate level at any of these things.
What kind of experience/skills does everybody else have? Any little garage/machine shops out there?
