    Thats a good idea to do your own bid for TM jobs. I was doing a plant setup and I try to get one of my guys involved in pricing, about pointless. He could never get past the fact that there were other costs besides his pay and time. Smart guy too but you could never get that thru his head. He tries to work on his own on occasion and just cant figure out why he doesn't make anything, charges customers wages when it should be 50 an hr. When he works for contr he figures they should charge what they are paying him + a nickle. A guy with the mechanical aptitude that can do anything you put in front of him cant figure this out.
