    Are Industrial market place's like Xometry worth the time for finding new work

    I guess I should change the title to "are Industrial market place's like Xometry worth the time for finding new work" because I guess that was my biggest question here, but I didn't know "industrial market places" were a thing until Garwood mentioned Xometry.

    Are Industrial market place's like Xometry worth the time for finding new work

    Yeah, working with local customers seems to be the best route. I was just wondering about these market places like Xometry because a coworker had talked about what must have been an industrial marketplace but he couldn't remember what it was called. And I thought it might be a way to get work if...

    Right, that's why I am looking for customers now. I wouldn't be starting this till next spring or summer and right now I am working on figuring out if I can make this work. And finding customers is at the top of my list.

    Are Industrial market place's like Xometry worth the time for finding new work

    Alright, so I looked into Xometry and its basically a marketplace for industrial parts, and businesses can find manufactures through this.

No offense to anyone on here, I’ve read other threads and there are a lot of smart guys on here that know what they are doing as far as machining goes.

    Are Industrial market place's like Xometry worth the time for finding new work

    Are Industrial market place's like Xometry worth the time for finding new work

    HaHa, Yeah Monty Python's great! He had a sketch for everything. And as I said I've read some of the other threads on here but like I said I never saw anyone mention "job auctions" I'm not sure what they are called but if there is someone out there who has heard of them it would be greatly...

    Are Industrial market place's like Xometry worth the time for finding new work

    I changed the title of the thread because this is really what I was going for but I didn't know about Xometry or industrial market places until I got some feedback from the original thread. I heard of the idea from a coworker that has 40+ years of experience in machining he couldn't remember the...
