i realize most mopeders live on a meager budget, but most machine shops have to bust their asses constantly to make any buck at all. stopping an entire motor build to do one small project (which is may more time consuming than any of you realize) is incredibly distracting. it breaks the flow of work, and can lead to mistakes, which is all lost money. its not the fact that the bit costs x and it takes y time. there is an overall larger impact on the shops production as a whole. some people will be nice if they are slow, or are a smaller shop and will divide their labor rate into whatever time it actually takes to do the work. but most any major shop isnt going to halt production on a 6000 dollar job and risk potentially losing the job altogether if something goes wrong, for a miesly 5-10 dollars, because after the cost of the tools, the cost of the laborers, and the cost of utilities, thats all they might stand to make.
