I think we are thinking along the same lines mate apart from the premium prices bit lol

As long as it covers my costs & makes some pocket money that will do for me, long gone are the days of me chasing an extra quid, I'm far happier now with less cash & more time to feck about with things I enjoy

I know that one lad who had a load of the early stuff off me was making a lot more off it than me & I couldn't care less to be honest I got what I wanted with no hassle & that counts for a lot in the mad world of slim :D

Having said that I'm not a complete mug, the new bloke will be paying cash for every item he takes away then if he cant sell it then that's his problem, to be fair he seems happy at that so I'm thinking he already has buyers set up, I'm also thinking he wants a load of stuff made to order & that's yet to be discussed but I'm definitely not going to do production line stuff for anyone

Lol that first lad you meantion sounds like me. Off hadnt been for distance I’d be purchasing off you tools the same :laughing-rolling: I thought about it many times from the first time you posted. I know profit when I see it.

Keep it up and keep it how you want. Your the boss don’t let someone try push you on a direction you don’t want or will take the fun out of it. Give yourself a decent margin that’s fair. Your a man who knows more than little Me anyways business wise as I’m still barely putting my toe in the water in comparison.

Keep at it. :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Lmao @ mike :laughing-rolling:

It still makes me smile when I see the first lad, he seems to think he had got one over on me because he was making money I maybe could have had myself, what he hadn't realised was I was still getting exactly what I would have sold the stuff for but he was storing it & having the problem of getting rid of it = free warehousing & advertising :D

Honestly I'm not greedy about it, my prices stay the same no matter where the stuff is going when it leaves me, I'm an old hand at buying & selling & really don't mind if someone else makes a few quid

Very true and more often than not a quick flip at still decent money is so much better than waiting for that one person willing to pay top dollar price. Onto the next thing with quick flips soon build up a nice pot of profit. Keep stock rolling.

Well my new contact came on Saturday & cleared me out of all my remaining stock apart from 2 small pieces that I am fairly sure are sold anyway :-bd:

He then proceeded to order 4 stools with bigger tops all the same height & as many clocks as I have time to make when I'm able again :o :D just got to get this hand in usable condition now so I can get on with it :)

I quite like the swords, nice bit of work sir! :-bd:

You are right novo I haven't been able to do much until yesterday, previous to that I could pull the trigger on the mig just enough to get the gas on but couldn't pull it enough to get the wire spooling

In the mean time as soon as I could drive I went collecting bits then cleaned it down as well as I could & also sorted them out into piles so I could have a weld fest as soon as I could, not quite there yet but I did manage to tack a couple of clocks together yesterday & cut some timber for tops today :handgestures-thumbupleft:
