Give me ideas!! I want to help bring sustainable living into the mainstream!! Anything I can do that makes permaculture, or sustainable building construction easier, cheaper or less labor intensive!! I'm not looking to get rich, I just want to contribute and need practical advise from someone who has been there and said "man I wish I had a machine to do __blank__."
I use Solidworks, Inventor and AutoCAD. I have machine design experience, firearms design experience and robotics experience.
Somebody SLAP ME!!
