    Well at the very least it's going to be an interesting road.

    For the OP:

    What kind of parts are you doing? Based on your other post, it's all 3-axis stuff. If that's not true and your needs are more complex, that's a factor.

    Your example of when you tell your customers your rate is that it's T&M work -- I didn't assume anything.
