Charge $50 per standard short lead, $500 for an SFP (sad part is that's
still cheap compared to many vendors) and that's 10x profit over parts
cost, probably about standard for a vending machine.
Just in the time saved from having to find an alternate source at 3am or
even just a Sunday makes it cheap even at twice the price if you're down.
