Hi Gerald, hi all.
A newly developing site, shopbot meets ponoko:

Looks interesting. Comments?

I think it is great, but kind of leaves out non-ShopBotters.

It would be great if we could come up with something that would allow
'makes' and 'fabbers' (like MechMaters, ShopBotters, and smaller format
routers, even the CNC plasma cutters, laser cutters,etc) to all do something
similar.

With a 'standard format' like

posted on a free forum like CraigsList since it seems to be
geographically based, but could be posted anywhere

... Just a thought.

That's a great idea Ralph.

I've got a buddy with lots of ideas and he doesn't mind paying a fair price but he complains that he can't find anyone to do the stuff for him. Most of it is either carbon fiber related or CNC on aluminum stuff - bicycle parts. This is the kind of site he needs.

Good luck with it.
