Intro to MITERS Answered

That's great! If at all possible, someone should contact them and let them know about Instructables. They would LOVE it! (And they would be contributing members!)

We are indeed active on Instructables and many of our members have accounts.

Our group is: https://www.instructables.com/group/miters/ and our club website is http://miters.mit.edu
