Woah! Called in at the Repair Cafe at the Youth Center (JIB, Jugend Informations - und Bildungszentrum) tonight on my way to our English Conversation Round Table and discovered that in the same house there is a complete Metal and Wood working shop!
Unbelievable. How could I not know this? For 3€ you can use all the equipment and there is someone there to help! The welding gear is top notch! And there is someone on hand to prevent you hurting yourself.
The woodshop has a really expensive table saw.
