TechShop Tool Heaven Opens in San Francisco

Look what $100 a month can buy you membership to in San Franscisco – Techshop Tool Heaven. I’m definitely jealous. Of course, most of my pieces are too big to take there and then take home.

TechShop Tool Heaven  has everything a maker could ever need, including CNC machines and 3D rendering software. Adam Savage of MythBusters explains how you can even make the machines that make the machines there.
