  1. So i am 15 years old and have already sold several products and would like help with what i should do before i decide to actually make a business out of it.. currently i'm just trying to think of a name but any tips are welcomed. So here are a few questions i have. How do i figure out how much to charge for my work? Should i do custom orders or just sell it after its finished? How can i get more customers? What are some good books to read or videos to watch to improve my skills? How do i come up with a name? How do i come up with a logo and makers mark? How do i know if I'm even good enough to try a business? How do i know what will sell? Feel free to add anything else that will help... I know i'm only 15 so right now i'm really just improving my skills and trying to learn more but at the same time sell something every now and then.. i will also edit this if i think of more questions. Thanks!
  2. Selling a Bradley 100. In great shape. It has worked great for me, liquidating the entire shop and what is left is a quenching tank and the power hammer. if you have any questions please ask. I am asking $5850.00 for power hammer. $150.00
  3. I was invited by the Coop people to present my forgings in what was supposed to look like a fair. That part did not work out. I was finaly the only guy to have something to show. Despite the poor organisation, things went well for me : I had few visitors but they seemed interested in what I forge and I even made some sales that I had not expected at all. What seems to have worked in my favor, was the booth I came up with. People were attracted, curious. Many complimented the presentation. This booth is simple and It takes an hour to set it up completely. I transport the lot in my trailer. I will add to it : a roof, decorate the sides with forgings, tweek details like hiding the plywood sides, topping the puywood on the sides, etc. People did not expect such a presentation. It worked well.
