Are there any benefits to doing that, other than keeping things clean and simple underneath the cabinet? The only thing I've ever done as far as plumbing goes, was replacing 3 toilets in my house, but that was fairly simple. I'm pretty nervous about messing things up while trying to run both bowls to the same drain.
My wife is extremely iffy about me attempting to try it on my own - she would rather us pay the plumber. Plumber's asking for $510 total, which seemed ridiculous to me.
$60 (replace hot/cold shut off valves)
$60 ('extra' work resulting from changing the sink depth to 8")
$65 (install the disposal)
$45 (hauling the old stuff away)
$40 (required fee to drive out to my home)
