In as much as I like to get "stuff" for cheap, and I'd really like to try the monsterweights on some of my horns, I have to agree with Joe. I started doing computer contracting a little while ago, and I started to realize that no one will stick up for me on contract wage negotiations except me. Sure, I get less business when I ask for what I'm worth, but it garantees that I can keep doing business because I make enough with what I do to make it worthwhile.
I don't think anyone on this list would be terribly upset if the prices for your MonsterWeights went up a bit to cover your costs and time. Most anyone who owns a tuba has developed the financial means to aquire expensive equipment, and almost everyone here is a strong supporter of work like yours. I know I'd like to see it continue!
