Machine time

Hey peeps! So in the interest of not short changing myself as I normally do, what is your price per hour on your machine? I realize there’s several variables but looking for a generalized idea. Thanks, geo

I have a cost per hour of cnc machine time and I use that for internal accounting to determine my prices (all costs plus a profit margin) for specific projects, but the customer doesn’t get a price per hour of machine time, they get a final project price only.

That cost also accounts for depreciation of the machine and maintenance costs.
