I posted this in another thread, but thought I'd repost here also.

 

Jared and I discovered this awesome place called Pit-Row in Santa Clara that is a DIY Lift and Tool Rental place.  You book your time and use the space.  It has 5 stars on Yelp so I'm curious in checking it out.  It would be great place for those of us in the South Bay who need a place to wrench and either don't have the space or equipment.  I don't know how much it costs to rent the space, but it's a great idea.

There was s similar thing in Fremont, but they seem to have stopped the DIY stuff.  http://liftedworkshop.com

According to some reviews I read on Yelp, the place in Fremont still does DIY. But maybe they don't advertise it anymore or something?

when I was in the Army the Bases had something like this. It was very nice since the military doesn't pay well.

Same on the navy bases. I used it frequently when. I lived in the barracs. But never used it after that once I had a place out in town. Always thought it was a good idea but was never able to make my idea pencil out cost wise once you consider the insurance you would need to carry. Hope they make it work as its a good idea and awesome if you don't have a garage or a place to work.
