    I was lifting 4' x 8' sheets one day and didn't think anything of it. Didn't hurt anything, no issues at all. Woke up the next morning fine, within an hour or so, I was having shortness of breath. I...

    Bill, I have been to that show about 3-4 years running now and I certainly can't speak for anyone else, but in the past, if you would have been there with CNC routers, you'd have been the only...

    It's main usage is in temporary signs, etc. You can make things with it, they have hooks that hook them together once cut, but if you don't have a need for it, it'll probably sit for a long time. I...

    I won't comment on too high or too low, but I'll throw some figures back at you.

    For metal laminated acrylic, 1/4" thick, they want $26.02 for a 8" tall letter.

    Glad you think he's spot on. As said before, it's called opinion. In your opinion, you think he's right, in my opinion (and others here), they think the price was high. Maybe you're not reading my...

    From the original post, that was $200 for the first hour, $150 for each additional hour, so that would be $1,250 per clock :D

    I count it a straight split down the middle. Seems about 5 people think it's too high and 5 people think it's fine. That's a tie, not a minority :)

    You won't be for long charging me $200 per hour for wholesale work. If you can get it, good for you, but your pricing should be based on value, not based on whether or not you have higher expenses...

    So, as a customer, why should I use your services? If you are small and need to make $200 per hour to survive, and the big company down the street has 10 people and charges $75 per hour, how's that...

    I'm just amazed at how many people think $60 per hour is "giving your work away". I operate in a market that will not pay much more than that. I met with another company not too long ago and they had...

    Joe, I don't think making $60 per hour wholesale is "cheap". I do quite a bit of wholesale work and I've never been called "cheap", but what I have been called many times is "fair", which is a title...

    Joe, $1,000 per day, 8 hours is $125 per hour. That's almost 1/2 of what he's charging.

    I've stand by my comment, I've never seen wholesale sign work go for $200 per hour. I'm not sure I've seen...

    Cast versus extruded shouldn't be in the discussion if I'm understanding what you're trying to do. Cast vs. Extruded is a big deal with lasers, but your router won't care which one is it, in my...
