1/2 inch thick steel

6”x6” wide

3” hole centred on each

25 units

Any one have numbers they would suggest ?

it depends on what your area can handle for prices…
1/4 of the material used should pay for all the material used…
then look at what time it will take you to clean and prep the parts…
think of your consumables use…“shop supplies”


I always double price of metal. Look at cut time I charge .03 a second or 100 bucks a hour. Then if you have to clean or paint charge extra.
