Caster’s porosity repair policy

I use 2 casters…Caster #1, if there’s a porosity issue in their castings and I bring it back the piece, they’ll laser it, although I have to re-polish it. No problem. Beats asking them to recast because of a small, but noticeable surface defect.….Caster #2 wants to charge me to laser repair a porosity hole (very small) in my 14KY that they cast that I discovered while polishing. WHAT?

1st time I’ve encountered this. Anyone else experience what caster #2 wants to do?

I would say that is BS, obviously #2 does not own a laser. It is a defect in the casting, the caster should correct it.
I am a 100% advocate of lasers, every jeweler should own one. The advantages far outweigh the cost.
