The Portland Machinist Guild is a group of folks interested in metalworking who used to get together once a month with like-minded members from the mid-Michigan area. We have been featured in The Home Shop Machinist (July/Aug 2003) and at the Michigan Historical Museum (May 13 – June 25, 2006. From the Mind of the Machinist: Gadgets from the Portland Machinist Guild).
We haven’t met in a few years. I would be happy to pass the torch if you’d like to take over.
