How much do rebuilds cost?
There are a number of factors that determine the cost of taping tool repairs, the condition of the tool of course being the biggest factor. We make it a point to provide an estimate of repair work before we start, and make sure to notify the customer if we should find anything that would generate significant unexpected cost along the way. Our bench fee for repairs is $40 per hour. Most small tool repairs (angle heads, flat boxes, pumps, handles) are completed within 1 hour. Automatic tapers are typically 1-2 hours. We stay competetive with our parts pricing, provide a full detailed invoice, and return the parts we removed when practical.
