Small woodworkers UNITE!
I just read a small post on one of the blogs that I follow about the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) passing a law that would require ALL makers of toys to pass third person safety testing. Even us little guys who scroll saw or carve toys that MAY be for children. Anyway, My default position on most things is to keep government out of it. Let us run out small business and be concerned with the quality and safety. It was the Chinese toy manufacturers that messed this all up for the rest of us. Even though I don't make toys at the moment, and even though I might not have an army of followers on this blog. I feel that all small entrepreneurs that make and sell things on line have an interest in keeping certain bureaucrats out of our business. Let the market dictate what people can sell. Most people probably have a tough enough time just trying to keep their small shop in the black. Fines, and fees that affirm something already known to all just adds weight to the price. Anyway. Read more here.....and learn what you can do to help! Thanks.
