Again because that's not how the thread started off. It wasn't a "I'd like to explore my options in pricing and availability because I'm on a limited budget" statement, it was more of a "this is stupid that someone charges more than the tool costs." They merely defended why a shop was charging a certain amount. Obviously shops have a certain per hour rate and if he was quoted for a certain amount, then that's the time they require + With the experience they have they feel the need to set their rates as such.
Nothing more, nothing less.
