Wow! I wrote the Estimating column in The Graphic Monthly for over 10 years. In less than 10 minutes, Warren, summarized what I was saying for 10 years! Way to go Warren!

Hey Bob,

I appreciate the comments. I really don't know why this is a problem for anyone. Costing is the 1st everyone should be doing, especially as they are spending big money on equipment.

I would like to thank everyone who emailed me yesterday requesting my costing sheet.

YOU MADE MY DAY. Thank you
