Hey pot, meet kettle.
If you are putting your product out, and want people to buy it... then I can surely question the validity of the cost before making a decision.
Not my fault you feel butthurt about it.
Thanks for the comments, definitely noted. Cost is quite high not to mention machine time and tools required for this complex design.
Also to clarify, I do not WANT or need people to buy this product. I am trying to provide a service for people here that are interested and do not mind a custom and unique product therefore the pricing in accordance to material cost/time/machine time, etc...
Pricing is quite reasonable with the color options and constant improvements made and a nominal cost for the Custom Poker Aluminum Keyboard Trays on my other post. I am not price gouging either if that is what you are insinuating, feel free to review the options provided by us in terms of finish and style. With those options you can compare with other's custom made tray and make your own educated judgement.
I am not mass producing these items, literally making a handful at a time and thus again pricing increase. Our main business is prototyping, not making keyboards and custom trays to sustain our lively hood. I do this on the side as a hobby and wanted to share my interest with other's like minded.
Again, appreciate your comments and should you have any other questions or concerns please do share them tastefully =)
