If you filmed your unbelievable productivity and just threw it up on YouTube, you would be able to leverage your efforts and possibly double your revenue streams. It feels like you’re already doing this full-time
Wait. Phil doesn’t do this full time?!
Exactly. Last week I was complaining about slow buisness. And this week. I have to turn buisness away. Or at least let them down and say I wont be able to get it done by x mas. This next 2 weeks. I will be producing more things than I have ever done in that same 2 week time period.
I would agree that if I was buying. I would go for the carve. But as long as you are giving both options and probably pricing more for carving. Then it is as they say.
I just got an order. It says 1-2 weeks on the product page…
“Do you have an estimated ship date?”…
I told him I would try for the lower end of the spectrum.
This is why I hate dealing with customers…they are generally stupid.
I am going to take my profits and put it back in my machine (if I don’t pay myself back for v-carve). Am I better off getting a cnc4newbies z-axis to replace the finicky stock on that give me trouble when zeroing or making the plunge for the j-tech laser first? It is sounding like the laser may be the better for making money (though I need to look at software and such for the total cost.)
I take any thoughts on this and thanks, everyone. This thread has been really helpful
And now I’m competing in my local buy sell trade group with People 35 miles away.
I ened up having to block her she just kept on going. At the end of the day I it’s not like I was too worried but still I don’t go on people’s buy and sell groups from miles away and call myself a local
I will second that
hahaha… look Mom… Bob and I were the only ones in the whole parade that were in step
I got one going out today that was ordered on Sunday. A 3-D cribbage board. Completely finished. There is no way I could have gotten it done that fast without the help of the laser. And the customer paid an extra $20 to have it overnighted.
Out of curiosity, how did you use the laser to speed that up?
He lasered on the dots instead of drilling them!
I saved 1 day of painting and letting paint dry. I used to v carve and paint the diamonds seporators and boxes around the 6 holes.
Now it’s stain, clear, dry, done.
It used to be stain, clear, dry, paint, dry.
It must be a ‘BOB’ thing.
I just got the CNC up and running so my ideas of making money off it? Well I’m a woodworker 5th generation. If I can incorporate carving into some of the furniture I make, IE: saying on the back of a patio bench, design on a jewelry box top, design on custom cabinet doors. There are possibility that range so far for this machine I cant think of them all. But if it can be thought of I’m going to try it .
Dont forget inlays. I am finding that people really like inlays.
what are you selling
