Of course, buying machines and equipment for small businesses will not be difficult. But any business, even the smallest, requires a competent analysis.
Therefore, before spending money, you need to draw up a clear plan of action:
- Analyze the area where you live. For example, in a one-room apartment located in the city center, it is very difficult to install a woodworking machine. But for the countryside, this is a very profitable idea.
- Understand how much you can spend on production needs. Some 500 rubles will be enough for a successful start. But another person, having 70 thousand in stock, has no idea how to get involved in them.
- Know clearly that you have decided to do something that is within your power. For example, many women will find it very difficult to organize the production of bricks. Although it is possible.
After realistically assessing your capabilities and choosing the right direction, you will quickly start making a profit.

- 3D printer.
- Metal processing.
- Processing wood.

Another candidate related to business equipment from China. If you are a creative person with a lot of ideas, then this option is clearly for you! A 3D printer is mainly used to create souvenirs, figurines and other plastic things. You draw up a 3D model in a special program (or use a ready-made one), and the printer will accurately print a copy of it using it. The consumable material of the unit is special plastic, which you will have to order as needed. There are two types:
- PLA - made from oil production waste.
- ABS - made from plant materials. This type is preferred much more often. Few people want to deal with oil waste, especially when it comes to toys for a child.
The units, which we will talk about below, have larger dimensions than mini machines for home production. Here it is already more and more serious both in terms of machines, and in terms of their prices and dimensions.
