OwThatsMyEye, thats what they charge the customer. Yes they do, I bet there is machainists that make a sh*t load more then 30-70$ a hour. From the sounds of it your brother doesnt own it, and secondly doesnt do anything that takes a high level of "skill", hence his shitty pay.

Either way I think all can understand why such a price is charged. He doesnt have his valved "dipped" in primer in which so many of your cannons look like. I dont think Ive ever seen a gun with a "supah" that the gun looked better then the "supah". From what I hear there performance is outstanding while some claim its not to hard to beat, while never possesing one *cough*WOW*cough*. Then the cost of supplys.

I tend to ignore such discussions because you know how many times Ive heard people claiming they could easily replicate such perfection for a cheaper price? Im guessing around a 1000'd, then you know how many have? ZERO. Sorry people, but the chances are pretty f*ckin' grim with the odds stacked against you. Possibly the high price is to pay off "Laziness"? Because appearntly no one has even done so much as to get off there ass and do it!

Please everybody dont get but hurt over my post, because by now you should understand I dont lull with bullsh*t, but cut to the facts.

Ok, I've heard just about enough about Supahs being too expensive!

:!: Warning Angry Rant: :!:

I find it interesting that everyone b*tchs so much about the price of Supah valves. If you think there too expensive then don't buy them! But don't b*tch about Joel's prices, he charges what he needs to, to make it worth his time. Sure maybe the parts only cost him $36 but he has to take his time to make them, not to mention the time to engineer them in the first place, plus he has to have all of the tools to make them and all the training and time to use the tools. Do you really think a car costs the manufacturer $30,000 dollars to make, NO! If you can't understand that he makes a profit on building those valves then your a F*ucking retard. Do you go to work for the fun of it, NO! You go to work to make money! If you want a supah for $36 make your own and when it doesn't work don't b*tch to me!

umm... my brother is a machinist and and he doesn't make anything like that. No machinist does.


that was just a figure i pulled out of my ass, but yes good machinists do make that, my cousin usually gets 60 depending on what operation the job requires
