Hi Andrew. I have some information on Co-op shops. The ones I have heard of typically there is a main person who owns all the machinery, pays the building lease, utilities, etc., and may or may not provide the actual benches. There would be a fee, usually per month you pay to this person for the bench space and use of machines. How consumables ( Blades, sharpening, maintenance etc) are handled would be specific to each shop. This is how all the woodworking co-op shops I am aware of are handled. Sharing of income or any business mingling does not occur except on a case by case basis out of necessity. These shops are very common these days, at least here on the west coast, Machines and building costs being what they are. Good luck, you will find something. SW
