Price to have a PSO plug a weight hole?
« on: December 04, 2018, 04:41:46 PM »
With the new rules regarding extra holes not being allowed in the near future, I'm wondering what is a typical price to have a PSO plug a single weight hole in a ball?  The local PSO here is charging $20 plus tax, so almost $22 out the door.  I thought that was high, but maybe that is the going rate for all I know.  Is this about right?

You better charge more if you're gonna sit and watch the plug cure......

a ball on a cup in the shop is like a car in the bay of a shop. A PSO may not watch it, but you still have to pay for the ball plug that has to cure. $10 would cover the labor. But you still have to charge for the actual plug product and the usage of pads/drill press.

We charge 15 btw

If you have never done it yourself then I can see $22 being outrageous at first.

But try it yourself at home, and you'll have to spend some bucks (estimate $1000) to tool up and purchase the supplies needed to finish the job. think about color matching as well. Plus your time driving back and forth. I've plugged many holes and it's time consuming with the finish work.
