Check Blodgett's Weld procedure Handbook for guidance on this. The cost 
info might not be accurate but the work component items are still pretty 
close. Basically when there's a root pass to make and at least look over 
and a groove to make and clean up, plus possible positioning issues, the 
numbers look right. I heard an estimate once (a long time ago) that the 
Navy estimated about $50/lb for deposited weld metal. The context of the 
discussion was grove welds with examination other than visual.
