Crafts room with tools - one time entry

Hi all, I was wondering if you happen to know of a crafts room/repair shop/garage equipped with some basic/intermediate tools, machinery that one could use for DIY projects. I'm not looking for any long term membership but rather somewhere to crash with my occasional mini projects for which I don't have the tools.

Currently, I'm in a need of a facility with a vice/clamp bench, mini circular saw and a small angle grinder (the bench itself is needed the most) preferably around Nidwalden/Luzern area but can travel reasonable distances.

Many thanks for your ideas.

Cheers,
Ondrej

Re: Crafts room with tools - one time entry

It's actually to make some minor adjustments to a carbon pushbike frame (tailor made for my kid) to fit wheels, a fork and a seatpost. I need to shorten a seatpost (below a clamp) and an inner fork headset tube and also to grind off some material from the aluminium caps to fit wheels. The tools are really not an issue as I could use the mechanical ones that I have but the robust vice/clamp bench to fit parts before machining is the critical part.

Maybe one of those suits your needs (websites in german only):
http://www.tueftelwerk.ch/
http://www.raumboerse-luzern.ch/miet...tatt-holz-sieb
http://fablab-luzern.ch/themen/angeb...ebote_aktuell/

I don't know which tools they have, but the first one could be just what you're looking for.
