    If this is a serious question you need to provide details. There will be a wide range, depending on the type of work needed. Simple parts anyone can make will go a lot cheaper per hourly rate than something that requires expensive specialized machinery.

    When I had my place, it depended upon the customer and the work being done.
    Some were £20/hr for high volume simple 2ax unmanned lathe parts, where more involved/high risk parts were £60/hr

    High precision and five axis goes from $100/hr to $300/hr.

    8 threads, and all seem to break the "make your titles descriptive" rule.

    Now why would you doo this ?

    stupidity ?

    Cost can easily be figured out with the simple equation of the following:

    Cost = part size in cubic drams x machine table size in square inches / .675 + (square root of available building power in amps /24) / quantity of machines.
