Can confirm. Am at $50-$100k of equipment and three years into the knowledge on how to run and maintain it, and can't download any software anymore without certifying that I am not Iranian. Am under a thousand dollars in revenue.

The only way to make shit in the US is (A) GSA contracts, which is the only reason Haas exists, or (B) niche luxury goods.

My local distiller now makes about 20 different kinds of booze. I don't think they have anything under $50 a bottle, despite the fact that WA craft distillers pay a radically lower liquor tax. They're probably a million five into their operation and I suspect they're starting to break even.
