I have a small machine shop in Saint Louis Park. If anyone has a project that needs some more machining horsepower than you have available at the Hack Factory, I'd be happy to help. No, not for free, but I try to keep my rates reasonable, and my favorite kind of customer is makers and inventors, so I'll work with you as much as I can.
CNC machining on a Fadal VMC with a 40 by 20 by 24 work envelope
Turning on a Hardinge lathe (so small stuff)
TIG welding (Steel, Stainless, Aluminum, Titanium, pretty much anything that will melt)
