Does anyone know of a place you can pay to use power tools? I've seen a few listings on craigslist that are monthly rentals, and I don't need that much tool access (or to spend $350) - more like 3 hours with a bandsaw every so often. I promise not to cut eoff any appendages.

Yeah, I rented a wallpaper steamer at Home Depot. I should've simply bought one; they sell them for $50 or so. But a more complex thing like a bandsaw might be more worth it. I'd imagine the Lowe's down on Delaware Avenue would also rent tools, though I happen never to have asked.

You could also check the eBay listings restricted to a 60-mile radius of your zip code, or whatever distance you'd be willing to go to pick one up. That shipping cost kills interest and keeps prices low, so if you were in the same area you could get one for cheap.
