    Default Price Check requested on a job I just finished (reason for $ check below)

    Hey all!
    Happy belated Turkey day.

    The job: Bore and internal broach a keyway, to accept a 1" keyed shaft
    Material: Customer supplied, pre-cut to length, Ø1.937" x 20" lg. 1018crs
    Machine: Genos L300M, live tooled, 2" bar machine.
    Qty: 11 pcs
    Work scope:


    1. Prep work: face and chamfer x 1/16 on the OD, each end
    2. Drill Ø.94" x 2.2" deep
    3. Step drill over to Ø.97, and drill/bore 2.19" deep
    4. ID groove to 1.28" @ 1.5" back from the face. (for chip breaking at end of keyway.)
    5. Fin bore to Ø1.0005 - 1.0015 x 2" deep
    6. Ph Horn (SHU117 broaching tool), broach a 1/4" w x 1.5" long keyway


    Here is the issue, and why I am looking for a price check.
    The writing of the broaching part of the program (and successive emails back/forth from Okuma applications, spanning over a week, and a holiday) took forever.

    I am willing to eat that specific programming portion, as I/ we needed to learn, and it is now an easy task to change the variables, scaling up or down.

    Since I cannot charge for "learning curve" time on my end, the recorded "on-job time" is artificial.

    I am looking at what the job "should cost"
    Assume a shop had to do the drilling/ boring, then send out for keyway cutting, shipping each way....

    Here is my question to the group, and I suspect the answers will vary from one end of the spectrum to the other.

    What would YOU charge for this job????

    I am trying to get away from just time/material = cost, and working towards what the part "should cost" for the industry served, tolerance, and specialty of the work.


    Thanks all,

    Doug.

    For only 11, about $60each.
    I'd have just done the hole in the cnc lathe and broach in the manual lathe with a home made broach.

    I guess the crappy part is if you had to buy the deep ID groover and new Ph.Horn broacher, that $600 probably went poof pretty quick... then we're back to doing things for the experience...

    Yeah, I'd like to add the cost of those along with the per-piece to the invoice.

    Well, fortunately the customer also supplied the broach, so no tooling costs there. I already had the rest of tooling needed, in stock.

    I was expecting the amounts to be between the $50-100 ea range. My initial thought was $85, but I went with $75 instead.
    Thanks again guys!
