I haven’t found their panel saw operators (tool used to rip the plywood down) to be precise in any fashion.

If you’re doing furniture or cabinet grade I would highly recommend checking yourself before they cut it. I will agree it’s a handy service.

Looks really nice, I love built-ins, you did well!

Really comes down to economies of scale, if you’re making millions of something there is a very small amount of expense per unit in producing a different plug. Like, I’m guessing it’s a couple cents per device.

Licensing fees for proprietary plugs easily make up the difference, and it’s a gift that keeps giving for years after the original purchase.
