    I recently relocated to Jacksonville, and I'm interested finding local groups and/or events related to home metal shop, machining, or welding.

    Anyone out there familiar with this area?

      Hello - Well, I am not a machinist although I do own a few along with an assortment of welders.. I am a retired automotive engineering manager who still likes to tinker. Don't know of any groups.

      I have my man cave in Yulee. PM me if you are close or need anything.

        Thanks for the replies, guys. My name is Buck by the way. I'm a former pipe welder turned welding inspector. I've been putting together a small welding and machining home shop for a few years.

        Any local-ish sources for equipment and/or materials?

          Hi Buck,
          What sort of material & equipment are you looking for?
          I see a few of Bridgeports on craigslist, ranging from a $500 basket case to a $4k supposedly very good machine.
          Best,
          David

            Nothing in particular. I have a lathe, welding equipment, and other general shop tools. I was thinking more along the lines of a local place that sells used and/or salvage machines, tooling, or machining stock that could be useful for future projects. I keep my eye on CL a lot, but sometimes more commercial type brick and mortar businesses can offer interesting finds and surprising deals.

            Alro Metals off Lane Ave has a decent selection of drop materials they sell by the pound. Any other local sources like this that you know of?

              I'm in Pensacola. Not as close to you as others but not as far as some either.

                I'm in Savannah. When looking on craigslist, I see more machines in Brandenton area than other areas.
                I got my little mill out of brandenton.
