Price check on aluminum

Postby yroc fab » Thu Aug 17, 2017 10:29 pm

What do you guys charge per inch on 3/8 and 1/4 aluminum hot off the table, no finish work, customer supplied material?

I have a job on 3/8 Alum with 101 pierces and 1266" of cut, and 1/4 Alum job with 54 pierces and 749" of cut.

Run the job report to see what the total cut time is, and charge by the hour for your table time and any design time

I just charge inches of cut x material thickness. Normally don't charge for Pierce points unless there isn't much for inches of cut and a ton of Pierces.

I dont do alot of side work but when i do i use jim colts simple pricing of double the material cost per inch so i was just wanted to make sure my prices were fair. I was .21 cents on the 3/8 and .13 cents on the 1/4.

Thank you for the replies fellas. Based off bbkf2009's prices i see i am more than fair. It was only about an hr/half worth of cutting on two 3'x4' plates that were easy to manage. Its also for a company i work for. Probably should of included this info.
