Colin has timed all his processes, and records these in his workbooks. I've watched him do it.
He bases his prices on these figures.
I don't know them offhand (though I have seen some), but I do know he reckons to make 6 chanter reeds in an hour. When he was working flat out (he no longer does) he would make a batch every morning, 5 days a week.

The last I heard it meant he did not charge a sensible (=realistic, based on timings) price for a drone switch since it was such a fiddle to make.
