You send the quote to the prospect, and a few weeks later, they send you a revised part and ask for a new quote; they also communicate that the only change is the size of one hole. Your inclination is to do a quick visual check to verify there are no other changes, and quote a similar price to the prospect, since this is...
MagicCheck Micrometer Tool
