Well, the question now ladies and gentlemen...how involved will I be once again with machining frames/paintball.
I just landed myself and spent the last 4 months deciding on new equipment, direction and the larger grand scheme of things.
I walk everyday in my shop and see my Red SFT on my wall with my 1 of 1 black frame, I pick that sucker up and I realize how much time and effort was put into paintball and the frames; I loved every minute of it (well not every pain staking minute).
What seems to make most sense here, is to see what I'm doing and how I can manage it with my life right now.
It's crazy to say, but were picking up from just over two years since I stopped doing Paintball work but that doesn't include Anodizing. I can't believe it's been two years. Though in that time, whether paintball related or not, new equipment has been purchased on a wide selection.
I see the larger than expected support but I have seen that in the past. I have also grown personally and as someone who can deliver a product quicker and more efficiently; you know...been a little more involved in the "real world" in terms of business/job.
Having said that, I think the proper course of action would be to ease myself back into my design process; get some anodizing done on some current guns I have, work with my NEW machine on various projects and start to proceed forward with my frame. What I can see happen, is a push during the colder months to start machining new frames (new renderings will be thrown up) and also with some sort of pre-order with the goal of having frames be ready in the 1st quarter of the new year.
Now it might seem a far ways away, but considering that it's already freaking September 2nd, lets be grateful
