It would cost me at least 10K to set up a basic supply. And lots of times I'd be splicing a hose rogater instead of building a new one cause I wouldn't have the right end.
I can't pay for it on savings but I can pay for it on running time.

I must admit though the local mechanical workshop in town is very reasonable and they will drop things to do a hose for me and cost it out with materials and not that much for the crimping and they have a big stock of various fittings and good equiptment to do it.
