    If they're telling the truth when they say cost is no object, quote it for what you can make it for plus profit. Doesn't matter if it's stupid if you can do it and they'll pay for it.

    Most, perhaps, but not all. I know a highly reputable CNC programming consulting group that can successfully program anything with a control on it. They're quite busy.

    I also cut the top back corner of the TR-160Y off at 45 degrees, rewelded it, and moved the cable connector to the bottom. Much better clearance.
