Mostly I can use my own workshop and equipment, but I don't have room for everything I'd like to have available – or the wherewithall to buy it! Plus some things are very expensive when compared to the low lever of use I'll need from them.So I've therefore (finally!) decided to join the London Hackspace where I'll be able to use their equipment for those 'occasional needs'. ps. They are currently planning to move to new, larger premises and hope to increase membership numbers once the move is complete, so if you are interested in hacking-of-all-types search them out.

Odd that whilst the Brexit camp said they would not accept 52-48 to remain they are so unhappy that anyone complains about the reverse. :O
