Let's say it like this. Lately, rates are kinda bad in my opinion, so you need luck on that.
But it is very well possible to make a lot off the clay table when you use it on the right table.
I've got to agree here, It is possible to make a good amount of money off the clay table but rates recently have been pretty poor, it is also important to keep in mind the potential for fluctuating prices in clays once Quill and Ponchee merge. Purchasing clays to use for resell and a gamble.
You just have to ask yourself, are you willing to potentially blow 87k on clay and get nothing in return? Because it can happen.
good luck either way ^^
