  • What to charge?

    Have a show in early Dec. I'm concentrating on Santas. snow flakes ans snow men for small hanging ornaments. All will be in the 3-4" range. I won't start on the unpainted ones until I'm short on time. I plan on using a small artificial tree for a display.
    I don't have these clear coated yet. I've been charging $4ea or 3 for $11.
    What would you folks charge for ornaments like these.
    Most will be 1/8" BB

    I think because they are hand painted I'd try for $8.00 each or 2/$15.00.
    Nicely done btw!

      I was thinking along those lines myself. Seemed like alot of work for four bucks.

        Rob they are very nice items and I think I'd go higher than Mike - doesn't mean I'd get it though.

        There was a lively thread on here a little while back and I think it was one of the Jim's who said - I para phrase badly here but - I'd rather sell ten at $12 than three at $40.

        I can see his point and I can also see everyone else's point about materials + labour + profit.

        I know I've been no help at all, very nice all the same.

          It is alot of work for 4.00 but it also depends on what part of the country you are in.
          I think where I'm at things have to be low priced to sell.
          However, I also paint so I know what kind of work/time you've put into them.
          I might try 5.00 each or 3 for 12.00.
          And that one that you had to fit together in pieces....I might have to put a bit of a different price on that one.

          BTW....is your deisgn woodburned on first then painted?

            Catlyn, I don't do any burning. Everything is scrolled.
            Hope I find the spot that clears the table.

              My first thought was $8 for most of them, and $10 for the guy on the sled....

                by Rolf
                I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
                I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

                I used...

                If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

                After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
                I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

                Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....

                Betty, I just tried a test, using a standard jpeg file. I clicked "upload attachments", then selected the photo I wanted to upload, then double clicked the photo, and it uploaded without a problem. Go figure!
