Just saw this ad on Craig's List, sigh. There has to be about an hour's worth of time in this cutting and construction, add on materials cost, machinery wear-and-tear, overhead, etc. "Well, as long as I make materials cost and have a little change left over to buy a new tool someday...." sort of mentality. I remember my grandfather telling me a story. He was a life-long truck farmer. One day at the market, he asked one of other vendors there how he could sell his vegetables so cheap. "Just how much cost do you have in the booth rent, the basket, the plants, the fertilizer, the expenses to transport here, and the labor & equipment-- you have to be loosing money." The other fellow replied as he pulled out his till, "I have to be making money; look at what I have in the till here." https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/grd/6076861969.html
