A buddy of mine and myself were planning on opening up a shop kind of like that. We had both been in the military and had loved the automotive repair shops on base, where you could go use the tools, lifts, jacks, etc..... We wanted to do the same kind of thing as a "club" with memberships kind of like that place. Unfortunately both of us wound up with many marital/financial issues, and it never materialized. That's really cool. I appreciate you posting that.
