What's the link to the thread?
I've been hoping some others would start similar contests.
Having the new parts tax
come into effect at a certain dollar amount
would leave cheap things untaxed, like you said:
WD40, beer, cigarettes.....
Now with raw materials;
neither of us are machinists, we can't weld and we don't have garages...
we'd have to outsource that crap or learn.
I'm thinking machining costs should not fall into the parts tax
but should have their own set of rules.
All + points, because machining is too cool.
