What labor? Throw a blank on the lathe, tool it, then cut off one end to drill the shaft hole. Drill & tap for the set screw, cut off the other end. Sand, buff and polish. That would take me less than an hour, with the proper machinery of course. Not everyone can do this, but it sure ain't worth 27 grand in labor. What a joke, it's not even ergonomically shaped.
