Become a Member

For an annual subscription of £15, you can support our Fellowship, and take part in workshop visits and other events, in addition to attending our regular meetings. Members are always happy to help out and share their expertise whether you are an absolute beginner, or more experienced. If there is a tool you need for a particular task, there is sure to me a member who has one. If you want advice on techniques, you will find a member who has done it. Skills range from using hand tools, power tools and workshop tools to CAD, Sketchup and CNC. When we hold a tool sale, you will receive early notice of tools available.
