You have the best of both worlds. Hands-on experience and new CAD training.

I would not go for freelancing but, would seek out a position in the CNC field where I believe you would find a lot of interest for your talents. Stress your background and experience.
Most designers have no hands-on and most hands-on guys have no CAD capabilitites.

If you try freelancing, be ready to exhibit some marketing skills or you won't get the work. Also have to be knowledegable in managing your time well plus keeping books for tax purposes. Got to have health insurance too, etc, etc.
Freelance it later unless there are a LOT of shops around looking for outside help.
