They do markup the price of spares, how do you think they pay for it and maintain cash flow. It's called the cost of money. The only time they don't get to mark up the spares is if you supply them.the part I wanted was $50, the part I got was not the one I ordered, it was comparable from the same catalog and it was $180. I can understand a little bit of a markup but 3.5x isnt it and like you said neither is 10x. As far as repairman and parts, they're supposed to charge you for the labor, not mark up the price of supplies. And as far as the 10x markup, I found the exact model online for $40-$120.
