What ? You mean that owning the mean of production of something gives you more power and freedom ? No way !

But having a whole worshop for every person would be ineffective… We could own together the things used to make other thing ! What an original idea. I’m so proud. I will name it… Togetherism. Thank me later.

If you’re lucky have a makerspace or hackerspace in your city, that’s literally what they do! Everyone contributes to buy tools (sometimes extremely high grade professional tools like like lab supplies, CNC mills, pick and place machines, etc that you could literally never afford on your own) that everyone can use! There’s also a huge community aspect with respect to socialising and sharing expertise.

There is also a lower step than a makerspace called a tool library. There is no space provided to work, but you can check out all kinds of tools. If folks are looking to start something in thier area but have limited space/money a tool library can be a move in that direction.

Here in my city there’s actually a place that is pretty much that. They have a table saw and other woodworking tools that you pay a small fee to use per month and if you want your own space you can join the collective and you get a reserved space big enough for a workbench or two.

I wanted to see one time how difficult it would be to make a DIY smokeless fireplace. It only required:

  • An entire garage full of equipment.
  • A $200 fire ring

Would you happen to still have the link? I’m in need of some lols.

Wow, you weren’t kidding. That man is in possession of some very specialized tools. As in, ones you wouldn’t ever find in an average garage.

Men only want one thing and its fucking expensive

Not wasting any timber here! Folding table crafted out of a single block of wood.

This is a master of the craft. Others just know how to use tools and jig. Most of anglosaxon video on youtube use one tool per task.

The usual DIY videos are clearly just propaganda for some tool brand. It is clear that anyone with a workshop with a CNC machine can make his furniture, but the old man does not need any of this, because he knows what he does, better than anyone. He does fancy stuff with the simplest tools, which these so-called experts can’t do with all the paraphernalia of tools and machinery. The Grandpa Amu channel is a must see for all DIY fans.

I would love to have a garage like that.

@sexy_peach correction: For $2500 and $50.

Seems more as $25.000 and $50

Rules:

  1. Be civil and nice.
  2. Try not to excessively repost, as a rule of thumb, wait at least 2 months to do it if you have to.
