Thank you to all of you for the welcomes! I really appreciate it.
I am currently building a timeframe of when I expect to end up with the Avid. At least initially, I will be a one-man show, so, I am being very realistic with my timeframe. I am planning to purchase a 4'x10' Pro model right after the Christmas holidays. I have a full-time job selling Chevrolet commercial trucks and I don't plan to leave anytime soon, so Hexa Composites will be a hobby shop for a number of years.
I have a small building next to my garage where I am planning to put the Avid, but, unfortunately, the building is currently full of stuff that I will need to find a home for. The building is the size of a small two car garage, but it only has a standard entry door - no rollup doors.
I am hoping to have an empty building in the next few months. Then, I will need to do some electrical work and install better lighting before I can move in the Avid. Lots to do, but I am on it.
FYI: I am buying a CNC router to cut high-density foam to make plugs for molds for carbon fiber parts, but I also plan to do some plywood projects (In fact, I am planning to cut my own cabinets for the building
Great to know that there are some Avid owners on the forum. I'm sure I will need some help from one or several of them to get up and running...
Thank you and best wishes to everyone!
