Re: Getting a feel for the pricing
I'm not sure why you got downvotes. It's the nature of "commercial" that one passes on various fees/taxes etc. to the customer. It's not like you should eat the cost of everything.
I have a small laser cutting service that I run in spare time. Yes, the cost of materials, electricity, consumables, and some small amount for equipment is passed on leaving me with a bit of profit on the side. If I couldn't make the profit, then "meh", I'm not doing it.
