Default Mark in CDA Idaho

Hello, Mark here. I'm in Coeur d'Alene Idaho. I've been in the car repair business for lots of years. Thinking of slowing that down a bit and would like to learn sheet metal fabrication, and just building stuff. Found this forum searching for an old video by David Gardner, would really like to find one for sale, rent , borrow, whatever. Glad to be here, looking forward to learning.

Powered machinery is a powerful attraction. Many machines are ment to meet the demands of production requirements. For a one off some machines may ge over kill. You may try getting good at one offs using hand tools saving the investments in production machines. Low one offs can be lower in cost then buying seldom used expensive production machines. It depends on the demand in your market as to what is the lowest cost to produce the final results. Economics has to play a part in the annalysis.

Mike.
