I have been attending regularly for ten years in spite of having most of the equipment in my own shop. A sizeable portion of each project is completed at home (I call this my homework), but the availability of multiple machines among which I can move quickly makes the milling and prep work for new projects go quickly. I really enjoy the sense of community among the instructors and the other students. And when I hit a point where advice is needed the instructors are knowledgeable.
