I took bar end weights into a local shop to have a channel milled so they'll take bar end mirrors. The guy I talked to said it would be cheaper for me if he did them as a side job. He wants "about 40 bucks". Does that sound right? Is this guy on the up and up?

Well can YOU do it for less than 40 bucks? Sounds like a good deal. Most shops charge 100 per hour with a minimum hours. Side jobs are the best way to get stuff done on the cheap.

Nope. I don't have a lathe, that's why I went to a shop.

There ya' go, that's the info I was looking for. I've never had to go to an outside shop for any metal work before so I had no idea of what the rates were like. Thanks Dodge.
