    I will cross check those who have posted with what I have sent to make sure you all got a set of the drawings. I will send them out on Monday if you got skipped over.

    As of now, I would guess I have enough quotes coming in... so hold off unless you are sure you are a world beater, but hurry please. I would like to get this quote portion of the task settled in the next week or so.

    Thanks again for all the quotes, you guys are great!
    cheers
    I have yet to receive any drawings and just wanted to make sure I was still on your radar. I will be able to provide a competitive rate and a fast turn around. Please email the drawing to metal.manipulation@gmail.com.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Thanks!!

    We received about 18 quotes from this board and have now chosen two shops to make the parts. If they want to come forward they are welcome to.

    Perhaps of interest is just how wide ranging the quotes were... some of the quotes were up to 4 times more than the lower quotes. I don't know what that means, but if the parts we have on order come in and are good, some of ya'll might need to adjust your quoting methods. That is a really wide margin for something like this.

    Anyway, thanks again to the board and all the shops that quoted. I appreciate your time.
    cheers,
    Russ

    This is very common. Always in a large group of bidders some % of people will drastically underestimate what is required, some % of people will drastically overestimate what is required, and a bunch of folks will be in the middle. This gets worse when the spec doesn't have a lot of detail WRT finish, tolerances, etc.

    Regards.

    Mike

    Also some people won't have the optimum machine, fixturing and tooling to do the job and not realize it because they aren't up on the latest and greatest or have not had a lot of exposure. It will take them 10 minutes to do a part the guy with the right set-up will do in 3 minutes. I can remember winning a quote years ago and the RFQ posted the price I charged and everyone was saying I was working for beer money living in my mom's basement because of the price. The part just hit my sweet spot and I made $75 an hour on the job and was low bidder. It was a 45 second part for me and 3 minutes for everyone else.

    UPDATE: Parts are in from both shops... faster than estimated time and they are all exactly what we wanted. Great job you guys! Thank you very much!
