a. hand checkering (which is probably what you are talking about) is pretty labor intensive and takes quite a bit of skill to get right, you also need special jigs and files to get the lpi correct, get them straight, and finish them

b. if a machine is used, it is extremely expensive too

the smith must recoop cost or he won't be a smith very long
