keep building airplanes... too much time and money to invest... you really won't see money come in for the 1st year...

majority of the shops can't see money within the 1st year... just a rule of thumb... You have to advertise, word of mouth and stuff like that so that you can get your clients.
I know that it took me a LONG time to get my product out, at least the 1st batch, trying to get my name out there, having people test the product and things like that, lots of time invested into just two sets of coils...
Thing is, I have my original job working at the elementary school right now and do OSC on the side. Next year when I buy my CNC machine, I want to still keep a regular paying job so that I at least know that the morning job will keep the CNC machine bill, and the OSC job will be in the evening again, unless I have my some one work for me in the CNC machine.
But really dude, even if your job is going slow at L.M. keep it... Once you start your own business you can't collect health insurance or an unemployment check.
