Btw, I wasn't asking for handouts or free labor. $50 for something as simple as this isn't reasonable to me. Someone who owns a shop or makes a living doing this stuff WOULD however say it is reasonable because you have to justify what you charge. And I suppose if the end result is worth $50 for someone without the skills and/or equipment that is also a case where $50 isn't highway robbery for the simplest of welds.
And there lies the problem, thinking drilling holes and welding O2 bungs is "SIMPLE", some people think welding is easy that anybody can do it. Yeah, and MIG welders are cheap.

BTW, I charge 70 bucks for two bungs.

I don't "think" it is simple. I finished the job myself.. so i KNOW it is. Thanks for the input though.
