Rates

Our Charge out rate is $175/hr. We charge out in 4hr retainers of $700. Customers are free to end the project after each retainer. Customers much approve all retainers in advance.

$175/hr. is our max charge out rate (i.e. a meeting with another company involving 10 employees at $100/hr. is $1000/hr.!)

We don’t have a sales person or a “project manager” to pay means we can complete complex projects at a fraction of the cost of much larger firms. Using in-house prototype fabrication and facilities at TechShop means cheaper prototypes than companies that have to use overseas firms.

Our engineer Bruce McLellan is one of those rare engineers whose skill set includes schematic design, PCB Layout, programming, and board building in addition to mechanical engineering, CNC programming, CAD design, 3D printing, and short run injection mold design and fabrication.
