At the cost of sounding harsh...
You will not make money this way.
Competition is too strong (Well-established, mass-market, high-quality
machines available all over)...costs are too high for you (both time and
money)...and your visibility is zero (who would send their stuff to a
no-name, inexperienced private party??).
I don't mean to be harsh with you, but sometimes it's worth it to save
someone from a lot of lost money and hassle.
