Jason, a few "x-factors" here.

The ".... $20-30 in materials?" suggests this is a small handle so taking off the old, and cleaning up the butt of the blank would only take a few minutes. Not that big of a job (again, if you have the proper equipment, which I'll assume he does). The other 'x-factor' is if he's got to pull off/re-wrap/coat the rod guides above so he can feed the corks down to re-build the handle. And I think I'm safe to say .. he will.

All that aside, one to two hours work on his part, start to finish. So his 'bid' will be 'time, materials, and profit.' Guys got to eat and pay his rent.

Fred
