Manufacturing guy-at-large.

This is a poorly formatted quote.

A week or two ago I posted a really great quote that I received on MFG. This one is on the opposite end of the spectrum.

Note that although I specified DDP terms, the supplier (a middleman for overseas outsourcing) has quoted FOB China. 

The price is also totally noncompetitive. I hope to purchase these parts from a US supplier for under $3 apiece at this quantity - and I don't want to be waiting 6 weeks for a boat to show up, either. At larger quantities (1000s) I'd hope to be paying more like $1.75 to my door.
