I would love to but I'd have to charge more than what I believe
people would pay, else I'd be working for less than a kid
building shoes in Bangladesh.

If you and Swingman are really serious, and not in a huge hurry,
we could probably work something out. I think you're local to me
if I remember right.

There are a couple of other pictures of some stuff I've been
working on posted at http://www.roanokewx.com/cnc.htm and
contact info on my home page.

I was thinking about documenting the build and putting it up as
a how-not-to-do things but time is the problem. It's not one of
my best pieces of work.

Looking from a different perspective though, it was
engineered/built from the ground up by me, an enormous feat.
Even with all warts it's still pretty amazing. Learned a lot
along the way but I think ultimately I'm going to buy one.
Something I can use and actually produce with instead of working
on fine tuning.

No.....I don't want ya to post anything personal, just a price.
Depending on the cost, my buddy who wants it for his wife would need/like it
by july 24th, for his wifes birthday.
Just throw a ballpark out there, i think they would be highly marketable.
The reply from my buddy in Georgetown was "Outstanding sign!!--never seen

I understand that but we are all our own worst critics. I liked the piece
of work.

Sorry, I misunderstood "shoot me a number"...

I think I need to start around $75 to make minimum wage. That
said if I'm going to make any money at this, anything custom
can and will vary dramatically, the artwork is very time
consuming.

If you're interested in something for yourself, and are
willing to build the stand, we can make a deal for a lot less.

In my experience advertising on forums is generally frowned
upon. Especially a new guy joining and the first post is selling
something. I've got a couple of places that pictures are
floating around and getting good feedback from most everyone.
Just don't know if I can make enough money at it to make it
worthwhile.

Sure, from a user, but many web based forums have provisions, along with
separate sections for sponsors and advertisers, and IME it is usually
quite inexpensive for advertising. One of the ways they stay in business.

If you decide to start making them for sale to the public, don't
discount such a targeted audience (no pun intended).

Send him my way. Depending on what he wants and the artwork

time consuming.

If you're interested in something for yourself, and are
willing to build the stand, we can make a deal for a lot
less.


well, just so you know, the buddy that wanted one for his
wife said he'd pay $125-150.
Is that more inticing?



Send him my way. Depending on what he wants and the artwork
provided I'm pretty sure I can work within those confines. ;o)


He wants one just like you already made or maybe the one on the website

Ya takin any orders?
I forwarded your pic to a couple of buddies and
they all want to know where they can get one


I would love to but I'd have to charge more than
what I
believe people would pay, else I'd be working for
less than a kid building shoes in Bangladesh.

If you and Swingman are really serious, and not in a
huge hurry, we could probably work something out. I
think you're local to me if I remember right.

There are a couple of other pictures of some stuff
I've
been working on posted at
http://www.roanokewx.com/cnc.htm and contact info on
my home page.

Larry

shoot me a numberpardon the pun and I'll let them
know. Ya might be surprised, plus the more ya make,
the
cheaper they getg Are you in Roanoke? I'm N
Dallas/
Plano. Couple buddies here, one in Georgetown.
One buddy here wants one for his wife



Yea... I don't think I'm going to put my # on Usenet.
On my homepage is a link to email me. Let's start off
that way then we can talk.

Larry

No.....I don't want ya to post anything personal, just
a price. Depending on the cost, my buddy who wants it
for his wife would need/like it by july 24th, for his
wifes birthday. Just throw a ballpark out there, i
think they would be highly marketable. The reply from
my buddy in Georgetown was "Outstanding sign!!--never
seen anything like it.....Is this made with a
commercial process or just good old American
creativity? " And he knows a bunch of guys in his
T-Bird club and so on and so on



Sorry, I misunderstood "shoot me a number"...

I think I need to start around $75 to make minimum wage.
That
said if I'm going to make any money at this, anything
custom can and will vary dramatically, the artwork is
very time consuming.

I don't know if anyone noticed but the 1911 sign is reversed.
It shows the left side features on the right side. I have
corrected the drawing but that reverses the sign. Also
changing the text is not a problem. I can add/remove text as
desired.

Either way there's an email link on my home page where he can
contact me.

All this time I thought you were simply not discriminating against left
handed people... ;~)

BTW, you are in good company... that famous photo of Billy the Kid that had
people thinking he was left handed turned out to be a transposed negative...

If you actually noticed it on your own, you're the first. Many
people have seen the photo and nobody has mentioned it. Maybe
they're just being nice...

I did notice... there was something "off" about it the first time I looked
at it and then I got to wondering if I was seeing it from the wrong side
(transparent)... but the "1911" read correctly so I wasn't sure what to make
of it. Figured it was me... I'm the kind of guy who notices white line
spacers on butt plates in cowboy movies... and the Ruger revolver used in
photos for the TV show The Americans that was not produced until years after
the time frame in which the show is set. It's an annoying habit. ;~)

Don't make Minimum wage, you'll regret it.
And you'll bail.

Include a nice profit so you can purchase new bits and stuff.
Pricing too tight is a lose lose situation.

Yes, and be careful you don't turn a fun hobby into another JOB with
deadlines and customers looking for fast delivery dates.

No better way to ruin something you enjoy doing.

I intend on turning this into a part time job, however, on my
schedule not theirs.

At this point I don't even know what one cost to build. I have
assembled a list of the components so I can figure out exactly
what it costs. Some of the material I had laying aroung and
didn't include. It'll probably be an eye opener when I
actually have real numbers. Also building them one at a time
is far slower. It takes probably 1.5 hours total to build a
single base but I could probably build 20 of them with an
additional hour.

I originally thought that starting around $75 was a reasonable
price but the general concensus is that I'm cheating myself. I
still don't think they'll fetch much more than that unless
it's a custom design. I believe custom is where the money is
at. It's also about finding a market that has the money to
spend.

Thanks for the input.

Larry
