I used to live in Bellevue, WA, and there is a PCB Assembly shop just a 10-minute walk from my home there. They got to know me on a first-name basis, and would have rework done over lunch.

I learned that they prefer to have at least 10 spare parts on the tapes because they need some room to feed the pick-and-place. The local guys basically trained me on how to provide them what was needed. As you folks are saying, even a slight amount of time learning how to enable automation pays off many times in efficiency. Also, the boards look absolutely perfect (compared to any of my hand-soldering).
All for the low, low cost of $19999
