Machine Shop

I want to start a machine shop, where can I find customers?

I would like to start a machine shop making custom parts for R/C planes, cars, rocketry, trains as well as custom machined parts for other hobbies as well. Where can I find customers?

the first part of preparing to run a business is to ID what you want to do and following that,
to "test" your HYPOTHESIS or hope, by interviewing prospective customers. We do that
by conducting both secondary [reading magazines and newspapers, etc regarding the
industry] and primary RESEARCH.......going to activities-events--places where RC people
congregate and see what they need, who they are going to now and finding out what
you can offer that is better for the client compared to the current SERVICE/GOODS
supplier[s].
