Cecil, he can't include that. To do so he would have to know a lot more information than what was provided. This is a gross profit estimate, certainly not a net.

Matt, we have had postings for this type of equipment before. They have proved unsuitable for use in long exposure to water and a high-humidity environment. To the point of causing several fires and almost burning down more than one shop or somebody's house. Perhaps if you could do some in-house testing with these to show that they survive long-term exposure to water, detergents, solvents and humidity it might be a good thing. The issue with these units seem to be that long-term exposure to warmth and humidity wreak havoc with the electronics.

50 deer heads @ $600 ea. minus $250 ea. for expenses = $17,500

DP

Does the $250.00 include all the other expenses besides mannikin, shipping, eyes, glue, etc.?

I go into a conversation on tanning trying to be as technical as possible. I act real excited to be finally talking to someone who knows ALL about tanning. I discuss soluble proteins and synthetic tans, different pickles etc. It gets kinda funny. Rather quickly.
I don't do furry creatures anymore but my take is stick to your guns and if the customer does't like your prices or that you tan your own so be it. Sometimes the know it alls are a pain in the ass anyway. It's not like you really need him right?

These are the guys that calls twice a week until completed , then take 2 months to pick it up.

You got that right!

Well then we must be related albeit distantly. LOL (Not sure if you remember but a female taxidermist ancestor of mine was a Walker in the early 20th century.

Watching Cecil fall for the joke was funnier than the joke itself. Well done fellas.


Hey if I can make someone laugh at my expense but then again I think it was quite obvious I knew a piece of wood cannot be attracted to a magnet.

A reasonable number for a part timer with a job is 20-25 deer annually.   My direct expenses in a deer are $115.  I charge $445.  I have a huge investment in buildings and equipment that eats up my indirect costs.
