    Default Looking for work

    Hello everyone. I currently work in a machine shop, responsible for setup and programming of 13 machines ( Lathes and Mills ). I have a Lathe in my garage and they do give me small jobs to do at home ( like a vendor ) for extra cash, actually a lot of cash.
    All small bar feed jobs so it pretty much runs its self wi'll I do other stuff around the house, ( yard work, watch TV ). I want to retire soon and just be a small vendor out of my house. So my question is, where do I look for those small jobs outside of the company I work for, a web sight? travel around from shop to shop looking for those jobs Machine shops always send out, cause some jobs are to small and annoying? I know dumb question, but iv'e never tried to become a Vendor before with my own small shop.
    Any advice? anyone?

    Knocking on doors works. Craigslist might work but likely doing more answering questions than getting jobs.
    agree here may work.

    Adding a little more to the "here" angle, take a look over in the commerce section, there is a subforum for members to field RFQs to each other. Browse through a few pages of those and ask yourself how many of them seem like a good fit for what you are looking to do. Maybe even post a bid or two on active ones.
