I'm a machinist myself. Even with something simple, I have time drawing it in MasterCam, I figure out the best way to toolpathing it, then I have to figure out how to fixture it because none of this crap is simple 2d, then actually machine it. The quality of the end part totally revolves around your setup and preparation. The older I get, the more valuable my time becomes. Some stuff is just plain fun to do, most of it isn't. Usually I trade my services for goods and/or services in return. Give the old man a break
