Big Blue Saw makes it easy to order custom metal or plastic parts online.
I’m bootstrapping in a manner that I haven’t heard about. I’ve been keeping my “side business” on the back burner for about 8 years now (hard for me to believe it’s that long as I’m typing it). Anyway, I’ve got enough runway that I’m doing it full time for at least the next year.
I’m not in the business of developing software, SaaS, etc., but I find that many of the tips I’m getting from the Bootstrapped and other similar resources are very relevant. I find it odd that much general marketing advice could apply no matter what the business, yet e.g. Bootstrapped, Mixergy, etc. want it only to apply to apps or SaaS.
