Trying to add a machine to my 1 person business.

Hello my name is Cameron & I'm a maker (CAD Designer, builder, artist=maker). I currently have a Glowforge within my company I started called Mind the Craft (Instagram name; Mind_the_craft) few years ago. I'm trying to get the ability to cut metal, as the Glowforge doesn't cut metal. I hate not being able to make signs out of metal for my family/friends. Sadly instead I get to see them go to the internet to buy it from someone else. I would love to be able to provide metal as an option that I can work with in my business. As you can see a break down of the cost for the CrossFire Pro CNC Plasma Table from the picture below. The other $1125 would help get set up with some material/a welder.

I'm looking to be able to hit my goal within a month, since the machine is back ordered currently. But if I can make my goal and purchase it from a month from now, it could come before Christmas. 

I want to be the guy that people come to with ideas they want to make or create. I love taking a design and producing an actually product you can touch.

Sometimes to get somewhere in life, you need to be able to ask for some help. In exchange I would like to be able to make people something from my Glowforge or from the CrossFire PRO that help me make my goal.

I would like to thank you for taking your time out of your day and reading this as well. As well if you donated to my company Mind_the_craft, thank you!!!!

Some pictures of signs etc. I've made below.
