    I can't imagine that (drill&tap only) is very high dollar work. Especially if you are getting pre-machined blanks so material markup is out. Have you priced any pre-made stuff yet? A 5c indexer with...

    I don't think the taper angle even matters (in theory), it is the tolerance that is screwing the job up. Current job we regularly burn 4-5-8 degree tapers. That said, it doesn't matter too much for...
