"Hecho en Mexico" is better than "Made in India", or "Made in China." :D

Sorry, I didn't put a disclaimer on this thread. Not mine, no affiliation, not recommending. Just a heads up to guys trying to make a living making chips. If you think "So what, that's way down in Mexico City" think again. The local medical supply place gave me the "We can order it for you...BS" on a simple sheepskin pad for my mother. I sure don't need to burn gas to their store to get them to order something. Point is, I got it from New Zealand to mid America in a week. Makes Mexico City look a lot closer doesn't it?

By the way if there are any NZ'ers out there, you have nice sheep!

$35/hour is low, but not the screaming price difference that we usually expect between US and Mexican made goods. Alot of shops still charge in the $50/hr range(not including tooling and materials). Also, just because it's cheaper by the hour, doesn't mean it's cheaper by the PIECE. a high speed VMC may charge more for the hour, but it also produce more. This is why getting quotes and unit price breakdowns is so important.

what? It's a sound file. I'll try it again, and if it causes a crash, I'll take it down.

It doesn't crash for me. It's a "wav" file, and on my machine, it plays in Windoze media player.
