I charge a flat $50.00 per hour for everything do. Welding, Mechanic work, Machine work, steam cleaning, painting and design work. Probably lose a little on some welding jobs but it all evens out at the end of the week.Not trying to get rich,just make a living.Everything I have is paid for and has been for many years. Low overhead means low prices.

I'd say you're working for free.

I guess it is all about where you are located and what the customer is willing to pay to get a job done.About all the independent repair shops in my area working on cars and trucks and under 100 HP tractors charge about what I charge.You might be surprised at how many miles someone will drive and how much fuel they will burn to save $10.00 bucks an hour. I've been in business for over 35 years and have made a good living at it. I could have charged more and had less work. Now I have a 30 day backlog. 80% of my work is repeat customers. I take care of them and they take care of me.You can go broke by charging too much or too little. The secret is to know when to stop in both directions.
