This was my second try at making left handed thumb throttles. I had already made one, so I knew I could do it. I just wanted to make a few alterations, and get ready to start selling them as a product. I soon found out how hard that actually was. The building was the easy part, but with the world as it is today, it really makes it hard for a small business to get started. At the beginning I planed on making 10 throttles, and I would keep one for myself, and sell the rest. Hopefully I could get some feedback on what they liked and what they didn't like, but before I did any of that I had to make sure I covered my butt. I went and looked into it, and it seems I needed product liability insurance. This would cover me if someone had an accident that was of no fault of my own, and they decided to sue me. Okay, fine, so how much does that cost? Oh you know, in the ballpark of $5,000 to $10,000. I understand that that is a small price to pay on the off chance that someone tries to sue you for a million dollars. But still, that's a lot of money! I only have 9 of these things to sell! I'm only going to make around $1000, then after I subtract all of my tools, paint, labor, etc... Well heck lets just ignore those costs. Even ignoring all that, I am still going to be at a net loss of -$4000 to -$9000. So for now I just have 9 of these beautiful throttles just sitting in my closet in hopes that I can sell them on my own when I finish college and ramp up production.
