This is turning into a great thread that with sources that will likely help new members in the future. I’ve made this a “wiki” topic on talk so that we can collate the good stuff.
What a wiki topic means is that now anyone can edit the original post, wiki style, and collate the good stuff at the top of the thread.
We’ve also been discussing creating a MI Maker Resources directory where we can collate all the great shops, yards, etc that folks know about in the area for everything making. Discourse has a location plugin that we’re experimenting with, but I’m not sure that’s the best solution. If anyone knows of a system we could use that’s suited to creating a directory like this, I’d love to know about it.
