I have been doing some general welding and fabricating as a hobby for a little while now. What always gets me is when someone needs something fixed for nothing (actually most want that). What I mean is, they bring in something defective and want you to 'just go over it with a bead' real quick. They think this should only cost $3 seeing how it only took you two minutes. So far I can somewhat understand their short-sightedness. What throws me for a loop is when you can point out to them why the thing broke and how to fix it so it'll last longer. This generally brings the price from their $3 (mis)conception to a few bucks more for a simple fix that will actually cure the problem. Question: would you spend a little (~ 15%) more to have a better product in the end, or do you insist on the cheapest fix, even if you're told it'll break again?
