Do you use that book, Dave? I refer to it now and again but (even though I know they update it every year) it seems like they're pulling their numbers straight from 1976. Way too low!

No I use my own. I found their numbers to be far off most of all mine. But I do own the book, along with many others about our trade. I enjoy creating production rates always on the slow side.

Agreed . . . I've always looked at that book and my numbers as a perfect example of why asking, "what do you charge" is truely pointless. There's a lot of experience that goes into my numbers and I'm sure there is a lot of experience that went into creating the numbers in that book. But in the end, the numbers couldn't be more different.
