Hi all

New to this so bear with me.

I'm in a position of facing a job move soon from the Areospace industry, the issue is there isnt currently an industry.

I find myself looking at my options

a) get a crap 9-5 job locally for half the pay
b) set up a business using my engineering skills.

I'm currently looking seriously at laser cutting as a strong entry in to the self employed engineering world.

I will have £30k money to invest into the project, so my question is guys.....

is that enough money to get something going on the lines of 1kw gas laser setup in a small rented unit in uk, contract machining sheet metal for local companies.

and also do you guys think the market is flooded with such enterprises.

Thanks for any feedback
