    We need pipe repairman because we have pipe makers. I didn't realize being the former was as difficult and underpaid as I've learned that it is. Thank you for the education.

    That's one of the great things about forums you get a lot of things to think about.I owned a machine shop and the price charged to for example a large oil company was not what I charged to a farmer needing some repairs.If I had a pipe to be repaired I would have a price in my head what I would pay to have it repaired. I still can not see how any repair man makes money.
