I assume you mean that the first one cost you $8K.

Dave, Besides the parchment and ink there's the cost of the Gidin for sewing it up and the cost of the computer checking. Then there's the Eitz Chaim and the Cover. There's also the cost of the manual checking if you don't do it yourself. But as you said, the major cost is 62 Yeriot @ $50 each. I have no idea how many hours it took. By the time I was done, I could do 11 lines / hour. So "the next time" would (in theory) take me about 960 hours. Parshios thake longer as the writting is tiny and errors cannot be corrected later.
