Back home and in front of my Raspberry Pi.
Tired but sorted some stuff to take to the auction. I would like to get rid of stuff that will not be used in two years, de-clutter my life a bit.
This would have been my business model in a few years, oh well. More of a one man show and OK to outsource some of the work, locally, because that still creates jobs. Speaking of jobs, I would not want to be an employer or in other words a slave owner! Not for me. The exception would be a neighbor, no traveling to speak of, that did not want a ridged schedule. I would be 200 percent in favor of an apprentice. Then later could sub some work out to a person like that. Yes, meager income. I believe reaching for millions of dollars is fools gold.
Patents and secrets would be taboo! Sales would be based on my name only. Yes, learning how to live on a small income just as valuable as knowing how to build and operate the Air Carbon Fuel Cell. The product would have to use as common material as possible and be able to be built with simple tools, at least to start with. I do enjoy and appreciate high tech devices and materials but would never want the product to rely on that if at all possible. Yes, designed to be duplicated by others. I would diversify with other forestry products like lumber.
I am planning to just update this thread. In other words; any generator or forestry stand improvement machines would be posted here. Unless someone has a reason to keep the subjects separated?
