Instructables members with disabilities? Solutions or needs? Answered
Hoping to trigger some interesting discussions... I wonder if those of you with disabilities (physical or otherwise!) would be willing or interested in posting examples of techniques or equipment you use to actually build your projects. A lot of shop equipment is decidedly non-accessible, so how do you get done what you want to do? More broadly, what sorts of custom equipment, tools, procedures, etc., have you come up with to make your lives easier? Even simple things can be very interesting, and/or spark ideas for other people. If there are things you "wish you had" but don't, what are they? How do you think they'd work, for you or for someone else? Disclaimer -- I do not have a disability myself. My wife does, and I've had a lot of fun working with her on small personal projects over the past decade. I have also been interested in access issues, both technical design and the civil rights/IL perspective, since before I met her. I will try very hard to use appropriate, inclusive language in these discussions; please don't take offense if I fall short, but do remind me!
