It's a matter of finding the work and folks who will part with enuff $$$ 
to make it worth your  time and materials. I tried it for a while and 
gave up. It's not that is wasn't fun and entertaining, but I did get 
bored with it, and it was not enough work to really keep me busy or 
justify the time. I probably wasn't charging enuff, but if you do, how 
much work do you lose?
