OK, I am wondering if there is concensus within the "garage" bait making community as to the best and most fair way of arriving at a pricing structure. I am wanting to build some baits as a way to suplement my income as a student on unemployment.
At the same time, I am not interested in "putting a hurt" on anyone, and I buy baits too!
I am thinking about spinnerbaits, jigs, and swimbaits. Swimbaits would most likely be somewhat simple types, ala Slammers and AC Minnows. I have made some more elaborate things for personal use, but the labor costs would be well beyond anything I can imagine anyone being willing to pay...
I am thinking parts + a bit less than minimum wage, as a motivating factor to improve efficiency. Does anyone have any imput in this matter, positive OR negative?
In addition, is there anyone on the site who would be willing to pair with a bait maker on painting detail, as far as a volume discount would go? I am better at carving than painting at this point.
