The workman is worthy of his wages.
If you wish to make no money from it, add cost of materials plus shipping and charge that. Add a bit also to cover consumables and equipment. No shame in that at all.

Hello Coco friends
I am writing to you today to announce a price change
for my converters. I have decided to lower the price to
$50 for both the board level unit and the one with an
enclosure. The cost to produce them is over $100 but that
is a totally unacceptable price since you can get single
board computers for less than that. So I have dropped
the price to something more reasonable. Something
I would pay if it were me buying the product.
The only reason I have to sell below cost is that commercial
units are made by the gross using "pick and place" machines
while mine are hand made. They buy components in bulk
while I buy small quantities at a time.
My main motivation is not to make money anyway but to
insure our beloved machine continues deep into this century.
I enjoy making the units anyway. It's sort of like woodworking
or painting pictures. It relieves stress and gives me a sense of
I have suspended production for the time being till my financial
position settles down due to my recent retirement. When that
happens I will begin to assemble them once again.and fill orders.
