I'll look for them. Perhaps a reader here will have a web address.

TechShop is at http://www.techshop.ws/

 

I am a member, and am very pleased with them.  I'm taking the classes needed to run a number of the interesting CNC machines.  There isn't one close to you yet, but they are growing.  They only add a couple of shops a year, though.

In another life, when I worked around a Semiconductor Wafer Fabrication unit, about 95% of the workers than worked "hands on" with the semiconductor wafers were women.  They have distinct advantages in eye hand coordination and manual dexterity.
