Work Terms

Flexible terms, I prefer to know a full job description before starting to ensure we are on the same page. If it's a larger job, I like to receive periodic payments as the job progresses. Communications can be by phone, email, texts, or we can meet and talk if the distance isn't too great. I'm in the Mountain time zone, so call after 8 am here please. If you require prototype fabrication, I will need funds to purchase items and contract machining beforehand.
