   I am capable of cutting out all those parts with a hand torch. I would have several hours into hand grinding and still not have them that cosmetically pleasing. Back when i could see i was very good but I could not accomplish that quality I see in those parts. So I have to ask do you own the CNC PLASMA or did you farm it out. Don

I have been programming/running a plasma table everyday for all most 25 years and being the fabrication shop foreman has some perks including use of the shop after work and weekends

How much would your shop have charged to have all of that metal cut out for a customer?

That's a interesting question that I've put some thought into already if you had drawings with all the measurements for every individual piece so the pieces could be drawn as cut files your talkin 2 hours computer time 2 hours on the table after loading four different thickness of sheet steel onto table someone would have $600 to $700 into it before any assembly even started and if each piece had to be measured before drawn onto computer it would be another hour or 2 at 100+ an hour it wouldn't take long to get to crazy numbers guess that explains why the price tag on a new 48" cat1 Dirt Dog rollover box blade is $1400.00

OK I can do a lot of cutting and grinding for $1400. That said I wouldn't do it for any one else for $1400, Lack of Profit.  Don

I'm thinking you misunderstood me I wouldn't charge 1400 for this blade that is the price of the smallest rollover box blade available to purchase I could find on the internet anyone that would want one of the blades I built could have one for $750.00

Someone will have to explain the procedure for the Quote option to me. It took me a long time to measure and layout all the parts also as with a lot of the things I fab for myself I made double of everything so I'm 40 hours in and have one complete minus paint and one 75% fabbed they are a bit more complicated than I originally thought and I was really trying to produce a quality finished product

When you hit the quote button, you should have a cursor just below to add your reply. I fixed your posts for you.

That is what I'd charge for a completely finished cat0 42" box blade including paint $750.00 plus shipping. I do not know the rules about selling on GTT and dont want to get booted from the forum my first week so if you are intrested I'll start a new post in the for sale section

    That is a very nice price but I suspect shipping would be prohibitive. Selling cut sheets/plans would be much easier, only problem is I don't know how to prevent them from being all over the web for free 10 minutes after you sell the first set. Don.
