    If you made a decent spin window that wasn't outrageously priced you might sell a few.

    You can spot outrageously or divisively priced products by the complete lack of pricing on web sites, "bespoke products" is often used as an excuse but it simply doesn't wash as a couple of pricing examples can always easily be offered, unless they've never sold anything! :D

    I don't even bite and run away from "Email for a quote" suppliers who are obviously fishing to see how much they can relieve you of, and if they are not they should realise that's what it looks like and it puts some people right off ;-)
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    Oddly I was pricing up Perspex type panels yesterday evening to make a 'splash' container for my Bridgeport. Something like this:-

    Materials or a solution for that might be of interest.

    Thanks I will advise my colleagues of the feedback ref to spin windows, especially given our in-house capacity to waterjet cut complex shapes.

    Ref to pricing, if all machines had standardised sizing, we could provide transparent pricing for these. However given machines are often dissimilar in terms of window specification, and due to commercial sensitivity, we're reluctant to openly publish pricing.

    Finally, I can assure you that we try and work with the customer to provide a quote which best suits their requirement/budget.

    Interesting, I would like to see if we could do something for you.

    What are your dimensions (W x H x T) and can you advise or pm me the pricing you arrived at yesterday?

    Thanks, are you open to receiving two quotes; poly and glass-poly?

    If you can advise your other quotes too that would help.

    Yep, whatever you think will work. I didn't get quotes, just looked up the costs of various 'plastic' covers.

    I totally agree with you, but in a way you're lucky in that UK websites generally have pricing provided online.

    Afraid that downunder in Australia (which is the land of the biggest rip offs!) we are so backward that very few websites provide pricing online for anything.

    As a rule I will (and do) happily travel 50 miles for example to change a set of tyres at a company that does provide pricing online, and sod the local bastards!

    I even found a bakery in Emerald recently where absolutely nothing was priced (either on pre-packed items or on the walls, etc.). When we noticed that we immediately escaped!!!!
