I’ve seen a lot of posts in general about people planning to make a multitude of items and sell them.
It may have been a recent Wood Magazine where they brought up an interesting point… A guy’s shop/garage burned down due to an electrical issue. When it came time for him to make the insurance claim one way or another the Insurance Company found out that he was using his tools for a business. As a result… his home owners insurance did not cover the damage to the tools and some other things.
I am sure a lot of this depends on what you have your personal property limits set to and whatnot… but just some food for thought as people start to install a machine that uses a beam of light to cut solid objects. =) As a hobbyist… I am sure homeowners wouldn’t bat an eye… if you start selling things at a decent volume… you could run afoul of your policies. Something that may be worth asking your Insurance Agent if there is any doubt and you plan to sell items.
