GUIDELINES FOR STARTING YOUR OWN QEG CICU
1) Business Operator– Designate one or two individuals with business operations experience to manage the overall operation of QEG production and distribution.
2) Start up Funding– You’ll need initial funding to purchase materials, pay engineers, buy tools etc. Communities can pool their resources.
3) Engineers and labor– A small team of skilled engineers (one or two) who are willing to build them. Check Keelynet.com or other sources to find a string of engineers who understand these ‘new’ laws of physics, who have dedicated their lives for just the opportunity to do something like this. You will also need to find people to perform the other tasks associated with the entire QEG production and delivery process and establish a form of value exchange for their labor.
4) Space to Build– A workshop, garage or warehouse to produce QEG’s. Some place with adequate privacy would work best.
5) Shipping Arrangements– Shipment of assembled QEG’s may be difficult and it is advised that they be hand delivered and installed locally. The parts for QEG’s will most likely be shipped in from many different sources, establishing a business shipping account may be helpful to keep your cost of production down.
6) Supply Chain for Materials– You’ll have to establish the best sources for each of the QEG components. We have provided a parts list in the manual and listed some of our sources to help. This includes a supplier to cut the core parts to spec. (laser precision cutting of steel and lamination) and a toroidal-winding machine or service that can do a custom winding job for a large core.
7) Workshop Tools– Here is a short list of some suggested tools to have for QEG production and testing.
- Drill Press
- Digital Multimeter
- Strobe or contact tachometer
- Kilovolt Probe
- Basic Mechanics hand tools
- Micrometer 6″ caliper
8) Delivery and Installation– You’ll need a small network of electricians that can be trained to install and deliver QEGs (relatively simple process) plus a generator converter switch to hook up to the main power supply of the house.
9) Customer Base– Establish a customer list of friends, neighbors and family who will be your customers. Word of mouth will spread fast.
10) Processing Sales– A system of cashflow that allows you to process transactions for receiving payment and paying suppliers and workers. Also consider a policy of some sort according to your own community guidelines for returns or product servicing.
11) Sponsorship Programs– For those who might not be able to afford a QEG, consider creating a sponsorship program for donating QEG’s or crowdfunding QEG’s.
*The be-do.com website offers the possibility to set up your own crowdfunding campaign for free.
12) Word of Mouth advertising – a network to communicate with your customer base. This will spread by word of mouth and by social media.
13) Protection– According to the political culture in the area of the CICU, establish a plan of protection to prevent QEG theft or confiscation.
14) Networking with other CICU’s– At the time of drafting this document, there are approximately 200 potential CICU’s in over 30 countries. It is important for CICU’s to communicate with each other to share knowledge and supply leads for best pricing.
