I was wondering if any of you would be able to give me some advice on how to find some welding work I could do part time in my shop at home to make some extra money. I have a syncrowave 250 in my garage, a milwaukee multicutting chop saw, a portaband saw, and a grinder. My goal is to find something that would be steady work ( about $2000/month would be great). I was thinking of stopping by some of the welding and manufacturing places along my way to work. What types of companies outsource small parts for something they manufacture? I would like to find a situation where I would pick up the fabricated parts, bring them home, weld them and drop them off. It would have to be smaller parts as I do not have much working space or the ability to transport anything real big. I thought maybe some aluminum guards or small stainless tube frames would be good. I was thinking of welding up some samples of my aluminum and stainless welding to show at places I stop. Also I thought I should get some nicer clothes to wear when I stop by so I don't have on clothes with burn holes in them. I have tried the metal crafts thing. I spent a lot of time thinking up things, getting material and then hope it sells. I have a collection of things in my basement that haven't sold yet. I want to make some extra cash but still be able to have time to spend with my family and do other things that I enjoy. So if I find this type of work I thought it would be a better use of my time. Any of your tips would help out a lot. Thanks
