We're having the first meeting Saturday, March 1st, at 4 pm in the Commons, Virginia Commonwealth University, 907 Floyd Avenue, Richmond, Virginia, United States, North America, Earth, Milky Way, Universe, Reality.
Local framebuilder Ed Jones of Cycles Ed in Ashburn, VA, will be on hand to answer questions and talk about what he does.
All are welcome, especially anybody who can wield a torch.
We're not officially able to teach anything...our future events will probably be "open shop" times, so you'll be able to experiment on your own, use our tools, and exchange ideas with other folks.
Everyone who wants to work will need to at least possess basic basic shop know-how, especially regarding safety. In order to use a tool like a lathe, torch, or mill, you'll need to show that you know how to run the thing.
Also, we're talking about co-sponsoring a lecture series/symposium late this year/early next, possibly on frame design, possibly involving non-local framebuilders. So, basically what I'm saying is that we completely have everything planned out completely.
