so you assume you can always order right donor over ebay?
In many cases you can not know untill you try.

No, I never assumed (nor said) that. That just happens to be where I get any drives I can't get locally or don't have in my inventory. And I know that many cross-family heads will still work but trial and error can get expensive, especially if I damage some heads in the attempt.

Well, you may start with SHARING what you already have with others...

What we used to do before was Outsourcing Heads drives till we got enough Donors to start with,,,

Now, We are Sharing our Stock with few trusted friends and whenever i needed anything i just look @ our Shared Donors DB
and most of the time i find what am looking for, If not then must order and Pray that it matches (As helpdisc said)..

This is the problem, you do not need to make money on every job. People often go step further. They do not want to loose money on any job.
Ball is not at client, he does not participate if you make good money, you guys are not partners. So why he should participate if you loose money?
It is a school, and you must pay it. On some jobs you get easy money, it compensate for school you need to pay for complicated ones.
At the end, client does not need to know this. This is what makes you better as a person and as a data recovery engineer.
