    Suggestion: Time to patent that plow & start production today! Great job!

    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.
