I think it depends on what kind of notary you are.  Most places that you'd take something to for notarization charge.


I'm in Austin.  

I brew beer.  I build AR's.  I'm happy to show you how to do either one.

I can frequently diagnose computer problems.  

I'm an Appleseed Rifle instructor, and would be happy to help anyone out who wants to work on position rifle marksmanship (though we'd need to find a range that would allow you to shoot from prone/sitting/standing).  With enough time, I think I can teach anyone with corrected vision to consistently shoot silhouette targets out to 500 yards with iron sights and a stock AR.

ETA:  I can also help people who want to design diets and exercise programs that they can stick with.  While I'm not a licensed nutritionist or personal trainer, I've helped a lot of people get in shape.

I alternate between living at University of Houston and a place about 2 miles west of the tollway, a stone's throw from Westheimer. I don't have any motorized transportation but I can take a bus to many places and ride the hell out of a bike. In the past I've exclusively shot at American Shooting Center but after I get my next gun I'm gonna see about branching out.

I'll assemble a computer and setup any software you like, within reason. I can advise you well on what to buy for your requirements and budget if you're unsure. If you have trouble with it later, I'll fix it for free, within reason, and if you give me necessary contact information I'll arrange warranty returns if you don't have time.

I can teach you the art of wetshaving and the proper use and maintenance of a straight razor, and a shaving brush. If you're an arfcommer I'll hone your razors to a nice edge for free if you don't have a hone or aren't good at using it yet, and I can point you to professionals who will do a dazzling job for relatively low cost. I can also help you get set up and even build up your equipment in phases to minimze cost if you're unsure whether you ultimately want to go that way.

I'm not finished with my setup yet, but if you're constrained by budget, portability, or space requirements, I might be able to help you get started down the right path of safe, accurate, low-cost reloading, if somewhat unconventional and trading low cost for low output. Particularly college students.

If you're a beginner to Garry's Mod or Wiremod, or even an experienced user trying something new or stuck on a stubborn problem, I'm a longtime Wiremod official tutor and you can contact me here or on the Wiremod forums for any kind of help with it or GMod in general.

I will do MINOR repair & restoration of manual typewriters pro gratis for arfcommers so long as it's interesting.

I've got guns if you need a shooting buddy, an ear if you need to talk about anything, spare 360 controllers and unused 360 ports if you need someone to game with, and if I can't help you with something I'll do my damnedest to find someone who can.

Even if you don't live nearby, shoot me a PM (don't bother with the arfcom "e-mail this user" function) and I can still help you with a lot of what I've mentioned.

P.S. Sticky, please?

I see you are in DFW (I'm north too) and have done AK kits.  Any chance you have done an MP5 flat to reciever build?  Any chance you have a shop, and the curiosity to help make one?  I can't weld but would trust myself with just about anything else in the process.
