Forgive me but something doesn't add up. The national living wage is £11.44 per hour. If it takes 100, hours to make them, then the labour cost is at least £1144.00. Given a 2m set costs £600,00 per side, that leave £56.00 for materials and overheads.

Am I missing something?
Yes, Paul said 10 (Ten) hours not 100 (one hundred) you’re out by an order of magnitude.

I was right - something didn't add up. Teach me to read the instructions!

Sorry Paul. I've always had trouble with powers of 10. No idea why!

Lately, we've been using the wooden stands for our Cubes without their spikes - just using isopucks between the Cubes and the top of the stand. It first happened because we forgot to bring the spikes to last year's WAM show. On a concrete floor, you might find you prefer the sound without spikes (I think I do) if you already have the isopucks. Worth a try...
