I do the grass thing for the exercise, I do the fab thing full time, I have been a designer/programmer specializing in sheet metal for over 20 years. This 3D CAD software that is currently in use is a lot more fun that having to layout a flat sheet development using a calculator and that CAD software the everyone knows as Auto***.....what in the world is so automatic about that?

I just finished pricing the shop hours for the leaf plow fabrication.
Material costs = 550.00
Labor costs= 2150.00
custom mount designing for mower mount = 200.00

total amout = 2900.00

If I had known that I was going to have to pay for the labor cost, I do not believe I would have built this leaf plow. Thanks to my boss, I did not have to pay the total cost.
