Vintage tractor shows have people that can can and do make their own parts, it's pretty much the only way to keep the old machines going. It's a different tech level than you're probably thinking of for a hacker space, but maybe there's flexibility both ways. If you're willing to reach out to the more Craft crowd, there's quilting and knitting clubs all over. Different skill sets, but they still think that hand's on is important. For both, you'd have a pass-along possibility to spouses that might be more into what you have in mind (I'm guessing electronics).
