Plasma Cutting the Flanges

Dewb, Jacob, and Max all have space at Artisan’s Asylum, the makerspace of all makerspaces, right here in Somerville MA, less than a mile from Surly’s shop.  Surly also seems to have access to  Artisans’ as I think he has placed some of his gear there.  Something about a forklift, too.  In fact, Surly seems to have something on loan to every cool outfit in the greater Boston area, somehow entitling him to VIP status wherever he goes.  And he might have had something to do with the fact that Artisans’ now has a large CNC plasma cutter.
